Yes, Trish, think of each part in little pieces...they are all very doable. I think I spent about an hour creating everything, so really these don't need to take long! Thanks for your kind compliments on the color palettes too! I love creating those, though I have taken a break from that recently...I will have to bring them back!

Hello Chris! Thanks so much for your sweet comment and no worries at all that it has been awhile! Hope that you will be out of your rut soon and so happy to know that today's project made you smile! I think we all can sometimes get all caught up in thinking that we need to something really fancy and complicate, however it is sometimes the simple little things that can mean the most! Again, thanks so much for your kind word about the jars!

I love the fact that you get up and walk laps in the house, Elise! There are days when I do the exact same thing...only my path is from our living area, through the kitchen, around the dining table, etc. It's a big ole figure 8 of sorts. Seeing the numbers is definitely motivating! I'm also connected to some friends and colleagues and it is good to spur and cheer one another on!

Sweet, simple and fabulous! This turned out really beautiful, Wendy and the thick baker's twine provides the perfect accent for this!
