Here is my before-and-after for the Roadkill Rescue party by infarrantly creative:

"Wait," you say, "that isn't even finished! How lame!"

Well, savvy reader, there are two important tidbits which must be considered at this point. First, I will replace the "after" picture with the real "after" when the project is actually finished. Second, the contest didn't stipulate that the project had to be in hands-off finished mode in order to qualify. So, just in case life happens (HA!) and I don't get to paint more on my lazy susan today, I will still have a before-and-after to submit for the contest. After all, the new silver lazy susan already fits our style better than the fruity one did. Thank you, fruity-lazy-susan-giver, for providing me with a project to do! What an AWESOME gift!!! (seriously, no joke)

What? You think I should post another set of before-and-after makeover pictures that still fits the contest rules, just in case? Okay!

Ha! Yes, this makeover (on myself) technically fits all the stipulated rules of the contest. And hey, it's what I do! While I don't get to refinish furniture or refab yard sale finds on a regular basis, I do get to exercise a little creativity in making-over damaged skin and poor color choices. And it helps other women in the process — what a joy!

Very creative post...I like both of your submissions. Although "roadkill to treasure" is a little harsh for your pretty face. :)

Can't wait to see the next "after"! You are gorgeous, by the way. Totally jealous of your beautiful red hair. One day I'm gonna get brave and do it!

Oh, and I changed the feed on my blog to full posts. I didn't even know that was an issue. Thank you for letting me know!


p.s. Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! hope to see you again soon.
