Three hundred and sixty-one “impossibles.”

I am overwhelmed and humbled.


When we started this little “impossibility” project at the beginning of January, I could not ever have envisioned the strength and heart and courage that so many of you have displayed when faced with your “impossible.”

And now….I am faced with the impossible task of selecting “impossibles” to feature.


Why don’t you just ask me to learn how to sky-dive or climb Mount Everest or learn how to make homemade lasagna?

How do you select from the hundreds of incredibly creative links?

You can’t.

So let’s just agree that everyone’s “impossible” was feature-worthy and accordingly, I will be posting “impossibles” to Facebook and Pintrest over the next few weeks.

And for the moment….let’s congratulate and applaud these individuals and their amazing “impossibles.”

Cindy from Oakview Cottage created an incredible paint transformation with her over-sized armoire.

Wait until you see the before pictures.

Amy from Buffalo Roam re-upholstered this….

….and added it to this chair for her little boys room.  Stop by and see what obstacles she faced along her “impossibility” journey.

Laura from Sweetpea Samplings finished this beautiful stocking.


Over at Shabby Story, Lynn completely transformed her guest bedroom….


….including this chair…..which she re-did…..by doing this.  (hint….it’s not upholstery)

Teresa at Magazine Your Home finished this incredible dressing table.

Rachel from Suits and Aprons featured this unbelievable craft room make-over.

She definitely conquered her “impossbile”…..wait until you see the before pictures.

Rita and Cane from This (Sorta) Old Life worked on (and are still working on) their bathroom renovation.

With the help of a few prayers and a few bumps along the way…..they have made amazing progress.  Plus….they are just so funny.

Check out Shelia’s table from Plum Doodles.  She refinished and distressed and thought she was done.  She thought her “impossibility” was conquered.  Read the rest of her harrowing story here.

And who doesn’t love a remodeled dining room?  Check out Jillian from Bella Rosa Antiques’ new dining room.

You can see her final reveal with before and after pictures here.

And finally….over at View From the Teapot….Alison started off wanting to crochet this….and ended with the tiniest adorable little hat.

I think she epitomizes what the “impossibility” challenge is all about.  She started on her journey and embraced the learning curve with open arms.

Bravo my friend.

Bravo to all of our linky party participants.

Post your button to shout to the world that you made the “impossible” “possible.”
