A few days ago, if not longer than that ago, I got the bay window installed. I painted the inside of windows Snow (Titanium) White by Americana after I gave the whole thing a good sanding. Then there was lots of glue and clamping and taping and hollering at the design. Ha! Before I glued it onto the side of the house, I measured out the two gaps and covered them with coffee stir sticks that I bought from Ann. I painted them a really pretty purple, Wisteria by Americana. Then I did a quick tape up check on the side of the house.
Hopefully, I will get to all this before the wedding! (which is only 8 weeks away now)
As far as things sidetracking me, the wedding is a big one. I had to get the invites out and I have been working on other plans for that. You never think they would be so much work, but it's all the pesky details that get you. Plus, it is fall, and I love to be outside with the kids at this time of year. And this is the time of year that I start doing a lot of crafts with them. Coloring and such:
Cheese cloth ghosts, yarn spider and a construction paper/lunch bag haunted house.
And I made this for myself while they were coloring. Michaels had these plain metal signs that I just painted with acrylic. I love it. :)
I am currently working on illustrating a book called The Grieving Party which will be released later this year. This book will be so great for women. It's a collection of short stories and some tips and such- self help book on how women should deal with a massive breakup. It's going to go #1. Love it. But you will have to wait to see the art in that book. :)
I also took on a commissioned painting for a friend of mine back in Idaho. She and her fiance wanted a painting of the wheat harvest and I thoroughly enjoyed painting it. Idaho is so pretty in Autumn. I have never painted a piece of farm equipment before so please be appropriately impressed. Ha!
In return, I sent her a couple paintings and a crate.
Next weekend, we will be venturing to the fair. If you love keeping up with my lively minis, Cayce and Charlie, look for that post. I absolutely LOVE the county fair.
