I hope everyone has had a great week and looking forward to an even greater weekend! I am working hard to get things done that need attention so I can spend the weekend in my studio. My muse is busting at the seams. Plus I signed up to do a one day art show in Raleigh Thanksgiving weekend! So I am trying to hustle to get more inventory created. At least I don't have to be responsible for the whole space as I'm sharing it with my best friend Liz. It's been more years than I can remember since I did a show...and I said I'd never do another one...they are a LOT of hard work. But I also am one who is always saying "never say never". Apparently I don't listen to myself on this subject. ;-)
We have another step done in the process of the kitchen remodel. I am so thrilled. And yesterday I found the exact tile I want for the back splash so another decision made feels wonderful. Here is the picture.
I spent last weekend in Raleigh with Liz and as always we had a blast hitting the flea market, antique shops, (where I spent way to much money) Joann's fabrics (where I spent once again way to much money) eating great food and basking in the warmth of a long time friendship. It was a much needed respite for the both of us and I came home with my battery recharged and I haven't stopped since I got here. Liz surprised me with a journal that she covered with some of my decorative papers I sell in the store and then painted on them for me. Here are the pictures. Do I have to even say I was thrilled to pieces! She is a gorgeous talented painter and you can find her classes over at Creative Workshops with more coming this winter.
I didn't mean to miss Fab Friday last week, it just slipped my mind as I made preparations for the trip. So again, this week I present you with two FAB (free atc background) images. And since I have a bad habit of usually working in a vertical format I switched and created these horizontally. So if you like them, take them use them for whatever you want. If you don't like them come back next Friday because I never know what will come off the digital drawing board from week to week.
