It rained TORRENTS at the beginning of summer, there were 50 mph winds just  days ago, and my my air-conditioner falls out of the window on a cold drizly autumn night…and not just night, the middle of the night; 2 AM to be precise. The cold, wet, muddy, middle of the night…and I, the only one home, had to squeeze myself and this 50 lb hunk of wet metal and plastic through the three foot breezeway that was reduced to one ft. by the presence of several large immoveable pieces of 8 ft privacy fencing. Now my backside won't get warm and my arms and legs feel like I've done a triathlon.
Oh yes, and I ruined a pair of jeans, a new coat, gloves, and boots trying to rescue a very muddy $150 two year old air-conditioner… I wonder if that little trip voided my warranty.

Is it Christmas yet?

<pMan, this 70° and 80° weather is killing me…not that it's not awsome and all, it's just kinda weird to be making snowflake ornaments with the air on :-/.
I should be grateful though, if we'd been getting our usual temps, and usual rain, these would still be just an idea…no where in my apartment can I safely use spray paint.
I have paper snowflakes in my Etsy shop and someone requested silver, I can't find plain silver, so, I thought i'd experiment with metalic colored spray paint.
I keep thinking I need to break this project down and post instructions or a video tutorial. One day maybe.

An arduous task

I brought it on myself, I complained about the lighting in my niece's bedroom…then…I found an awsome deal on a lamp…and…I decided it needed more personality…now…it's too late to turn back :-/
