Oh, my! How can it be June already?
Last month I was in the Birds and Blooms Exhibit at Markeim Arts Center in Haddonfield, New Jersey. That was fantastic. At the closing party a kid, really a kid - he's 14, did abstract painting and it was spectacular to watch. I never "got" abstract art before, but he had such energy and such a method - it really was something. His name is Nick Kepron, his work is vibrant! I sold a few pieces at the show, so that's always a pleasure.
Now everything's home. I've gone through my inventory and have several items to photograph and list on WoodstreamDream and WoodstreamPapery.
My summer looks good for creating and listing. I am available for custom work - think about what your winter weather accessories looked like before you packed them up. Needing a new scarf or cap? Drop me a line and I'll work with you to create something just for you!
I'm continuing work on my studio. That was put on hold while my husband had a flurry of travel and my older son had two bouts with the stomach bug last month. It's back on track. Furniture has been moved. More "stuff" to sort through and rearrange. The destash table at my friend's yard sale last month helped to clear some stuff out. After rearranging and sorting, my largest task is finding a table top surface to go over the filing cabinets (so I have smooth flat work surface) - the dimensions are 27ish by 54ish. I think too deep for formica (my first thought). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
This month ends with my husband's birthday and my younger son's birthday back to back. I'm working on getting everything settled for birthday parties and plans for the summer - trying to get travel plans nailed down.
I'm also working on ordering all that will be needed for our bathroom renovation coming up in July. I will be posting renovation photos here. Some of the projects are DIY - I bought an antique dresser and mirror that will be transformed into our vanity and medicine cabinet. This is a gut job, right now it's a drafty 1964 bathroom with blue tile and tub. I have showered for nearly four years straight and I'm ready for a good long soak in my new tub! Most fixtures are chosen, some have been delivered and now reside in our garage. We went through a kitchen renovation three years ago and this one should prove to be great for before & after photos, too! I'm looking forward to the finished product, or at least when I can take a bath!
I will be back to photography and listing some time this week or next. I have a couple new baskets and several new gift tags to get photographed and listed. My delay is because yesterday morning I scratched my cornea when cleanser flicked up into my eye while cleaning the kitchen sink. I find myself fatigued with wearing glasses, always needing to refocus it seems. I go to the eye doctor tomorrow and hopefully sometime next week I can switch back to contacts. For now it's eye drops every 4 waking hours and glasses. It's not as painful as it was yesterday, so I'm hoping that I feel back to normal in a day or two.
Have a blessed week! Thanks so much for checking in!
