Overestimation of abilities

My best pal Crystal, one of my biggest artistic supporters, is doing her kids bathroom in a(n?) M&M’s theme. She sent me a picture of towels she saw on amazon to see if I could make something similar but for the wall and personalized with their names.


I believe my exact text was something like: Girl, please. I can have that done in a day.

Besides the fact that, bless her heart, Crystal has not 1 ruler or tape measure in her house and we discussed a size from approximately 7ish am to 11pm, I still didn’t really get started until last night.

I had a canvas that I did get painted a green color the next day but that M&M lady is a strange hue of green.. One I don’t own and had to make. And never seemed to make enough of it or recall exactly how I made it the last time.


So I gave up on it, cut my losses, and, as I didn’t have that size canvas for the red M&M, I just started over on a 12×12.

No one in the house really held their tongue about how bad it looked in the development phase.




I was also making coasters with my daughter at the time, and she was especially blunt when describing how it looked, as was my mother in law. We then had a brief argument where google got involved between if the print I made was leopard or jaguar or dodo bird.


I am hoping to be finished with this tonight. But as I ran out of my perfect green again, for the 80,000 time, I doubt it.
