I often describe myself the same way when it comes to home improvement or do it yourself projects. I come roaring in like a lion ready to get the stuff done and then either I lose interest or I realize the project is too big or too hard for me and I give up on it.
So you tend to look at projects that way too?
Just as an example; one day I saw this photo...

Isn't that gorgeous? So simple and elegant. I loved it and right away ran out to Michael's Craft Store to purchase tissue paper and little vases. After all, I had the tutorial from Rust & Sunshine to follow and I remember making these for my wedding.
I bought a big pack of tissue paper in every color of the rainbow. It's sat in my drawer for years and every once in a while when I am wrapping a gift in a gift bag I go and take out a couple of sheets and stuff them in the gift bag.
Then another time I was sitting at the kitchen table having coffee with my mom and sister and I was staring at my living room which all of a sudden seemed different shades of blah! So brown and beige and colorless. I decided that what I needed was some ribbons that I could attach to the curtains to add some color, something like this...

So I packed mom and my sister into the car and we drove into town and went to a fabric store and I bought yards and yards of ribbons in different colors, widths and lengths. But the time we had lunch and got back home I was too tired to mess with them and set them aside still in the bag for years. Just a few months ago I packed the bag up with some other things I was taking to Goodwill to donate.
Yep, in like a lion and out like a lamb! That's so me! Welcome March!
