Don't you love it when you put the finishing touches on a big project? I put all of my paintings and artwork for my next fabric line in the mail the other day, bound for New York City. While it's a weight off my shoulders to get a big project done (and within my deadline! yay!), I always say a prayer when I "release" it to the folks at the post office... and then let out a big sigh of relief when I get notified that the package arrived safely. I insure it, but it is really priceless- if it gets lost or damaged, I can't just run out and buy new art! I'd have to re-create it (and I don't even want to think about that!)
And once a big project is done, I like to clean out the studio- because it usually a total d-i-s-a-s-t-e-r. This time, cleaning out took 2 days- yeah it was a big mess. And speaking of messes, this is what we are living with now:

(A good excuse not to cook for a couple of weeks). But it is going to look great when it's done- can't wait. We have been talking about re-doing the kitchen for years, but I couldn't face the mess Now we are finally doing it. The blue wallpaper is gone (it took 2 days to remove), and I didn't shed a single tear. This week we have to get a new oven, and the painter will be here to paint a lovely shade of green (we chose the one on the right). In the meantime, stuff is piled everywhere...on tables, chairs and floors... I am trying to pretend that I don't really live here, I'm just visiting some really bad housekeeper... (oh yes that is my Valentine's Day tree in the background- guess that's gonna have to come down soon!!)

Giveaway winner for our Just-Because-We-Love-Ya Sale and Giveaway will be announced Friday. Stay tuned.


  1. I love the green on the right. Cannot wait to see your finished kitchen!

    Congrats on finishing one of your projects! That is so cool!


  2. Wow, you have big projects going on right now! I feel the same way about sending customers artwork...really scary until it arrives safely!
    Good luck on the kitchen remodel...I'm sure it will be wonderful!

  3. I can't wait to see the kitchen when it is finished. Been there and done that. We need to do it again.
