I know everyone is enjoying their summer and playing outside (hopefully)!
Have a July 10th craft show coming up and wanted to share some pics of works-in-progress.
Above are some kitties, a pear and apple and daisy flower. Have about a million of each left to finish. Went a leeeetle heavy on the stain. I know most folks (around here especially) don't care for the really stained pieces, but I can't help myself, the older looking the better for me! I know when you sell, you are supposed to create for the consumer, but I just can't create something that isn't in my heart. It's more of a hobby for me anyway, at this point in life...I just need more space for more creations! LOL!
Sometimes I just sit and stare at the pile. Very overwhelming!
I saved the worst for last. Moved my craft table out and started working off the floor (oh my aching back!). Excuse the dirty carpet...wish I could blame the huge stain on the cat or kid or man, but while I was sitting up painting....at 2 am....I spilled a mason jar of black paint and coffee on the floor. I did have foil under, but it went flying.
I referred to this back room as "the family room" when talking to my daughter this weekend. She laughed and said, "Mom, face it, it's your CRAFT ROOM. Not a family room." Point taken.
God Bless everyone on the 4th of July! I wish you health and happiness, healing and lots of lemonade, watermelon, popsicles, strawberry shortcake, firework oooh's & ahhh's and JOY!
