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!)
(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!!)
