I thought I may explain, "You have to be able to judge a cow thru the mud."  That came from my FFA (Future Farmers Of America) adviser, David E. McPherson, aka Mr Mac.  See, I was in High School and on the Dairy Judging team. Mr. Mac had taken our team out to a dairy barn for judging practice.  It was a muddy day and well, the cows were a little muddy.  And someone on the team commented on it.  And, that is what he said, "Well, You'll have to judge the cow thru the mud."  Sometimes you have to look thru the mud, the layers, the ugly, to see the bones, structure of something.  He was a very wise man and when he retired after 45 years, a lot of tears were shed.

Funny, how something that someone said so long ago, sticks with you for a lifetime.  I am not really sure why that influenced me so much.  But, when I see something ugly, I think how can I make that Fabulous. Check out the Barnominium.  It was a Big Old Muddy Cow.  I will be adding lots of before and afters projects and  DIY projects on the blog. Unlike HGTV, everything on my blog will be done on a beer budget.  I love to watch that channel, but sometimes you need to see something real, attainable. Not many, have $30,000 to redo a kitchen, $15,000 to redo a bath.  I will be showing affordable do overs. So, check out the barn below and the post under pages.

I hope this Blog will inspire you, to look inside yourself for creativity, to think outside the box.  You will not ever know you can...unless you just do it.  So, many people are frozen, thinking "I can't do that." "YES, You Can" Either their lazy and want someone else to do it for them or they are just insecure in their abilities.  I challenge you to step out of the box.  If you paint something and don't like it, change it, It is just paint. Thanks, for looking.  Feel free to comment or to ask questions.
