    Again. A fail. If you click on my name it doesn’t lead you to my blog. In fact, when I click on Amy’s name it doesn’t lead me to her blog either …

    Okay… wow… that’s so surprising. Whenever I reply to a Disqus thread, it is immediately emailed to my inbox.

    I am going to re-examine this commenting thing (thank you, Ms. Mentor!) and I will consider using the original blogger format.

    I do love the WordPress comment box… but again… not ready to make the jump to WP. Thank you for helping me!

    Ok. Now I’ve registered with Disqus. Only cuz I like you and Amy sent me your way and I love Amy. Let’s see if it works. Oh, and as your self-appointed mentor, forcing people to take the extra step to register for the comment service is a comment deterrent. You want to make it as easy as possible. I fear you may be chasing people away …

    Not true. Your reply did not come to my email box …

    Oh no! I think that you have to sign out of Disqus and then sign in as your blog. Does your blog have a Disqus account?

    One of the reasons I like Disqus is because every comment is directly emailed to that person (yet still remains on the thread). But if it’s giving people grief with their accounts…. that’s irritating.

    I am the worst stenciler in the world! I have so many fails at it, I’ve kind of given up!

    Oh no. At least I can tell that it was supposed to be a rooster. Thanks for sharing your craft fail. I love seeing fails along with successes, it makes me know you are keeping it real 🙂

    I am all about “keeping it real”. Hello…. giant horror-show of a linen closet… I will put that online for everyone to see?!?! Talk about airing my dirty laundry – literally.

    Thanks for guessing that he was a rooster. I was also told that he was a factory-farmed rooster who was debeaked.

    That was reassuring.

    I think it has some interesting character to it! I am too chicken to even try painting… I just print stuff off and Mod Podge it… so good for you for even trying it. And thanks for sharing a fail… my craft projects usually take a swift turn mid-way. Glad to know I am not the only one who has to stop and rethink/redo at times.

    Oh, Krista, you’re so kind! I considered doing Mod Podge, but I really didn’t want to cut out all of that detail (impossible, I think) and I also wanted this crate to be able to go outside.

    Pfffttt… it can go outside now… in the wood pile.

    Kidding. I’ll try and fix it. Or I’ll give up and chuck in into the playroom and let the girls figure out whatever destiny its supposed to have.

    The majority of my crafts are fails! LOL! So nice to see someone keeping it real and showing off that not everything is perfect. 🙂

    I’m glad I’m not alone, Ali! I was thoroughly bummed when I pulled off the stencil. I had such high hopes… and I ended up with more work. Grumble…

    Are you going to try to paint them again? That’s the trouble with spray paint – you really have to put a lot of faith in the color of the paint cap… It’s a shame that they can’t be mixed like traditional paint.

    I will try again with stencils… but I think I will try to be aware of their limitations. Rough wooden crates? Not so much.

    Yea, I will spray them again, but I’m going to wait a while before I do it. I want to re-evaluate the color and these chairs have a ton of nooks and crannies so it was a real pain to paint them even with spray paint.

    I totally had a fail last week! I was spray painting some chairs green and going for a seafoam green, but they ended up way too lime-y! Crap happens! And I am not a huge stencil fan! I have never been able to make them turn out great! Jenna @ Rain on a Tin Roof

    I will look for that craft-fail on your blog!

    I think that it’s great when people share their trials and errors. I don’t always want to see the polished perfection… it gets me down when I’m looking at my mauled chicken stencil horror show. 😉

    I truly despise Disqus. I didn’t want to leave a comment as my FB profile? I mean, how weird is that? I wanted to leave as my blog (www.itallstartedwithpaint.com). I can’t seem to figure this service out …

    Let’s band together … I, too, had a project fail this weekend. My attempts to salvage are, well, juvenile at best. But I will post. Hey, it’s a public service!

    🙂 Linda
