Six random things about myself…..hmmm

1. Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tarts are my favorite.

2. I learned how to remove wallpaper borders, and discovered the internet instructions saying that “patience is required” was correct.

3. I do not like spiders.

4. I found a dead mouse this week. Drowned dead.

5. I purchase purses based on their ability to carry a sketchbook.

6. I like to label things.

Tag –you’re it!!

Sometimes we get involved in projects when we should really be doing other things. Angry Chicken wrote two very inspiring posts on creative procrastination… here’s Part One and Part Two. I was so inspired that we decided to repaint the living room, when we really should be getting papercuttings ready for our store’s Open House this weekend! However, the repaint was necessary for my sanity. This particular room holds our woodstove, which makes it rather warm. It also was heavily stenciled and wall-paper-bordered, and had lots of things in it. Between the warmth and the clutter, I was getting a bit claustrophobic when in there. We’re only half finished with the project, but it feels like the ceiling has been raised a couple of feet!

Here’s a “before” shot…


And a picture of my able assistant


And after the demolition process…


Now all we have to do is “Kilz” the stenciling, and apply new paint! Eventually some new, fresh stenciling too, but I think I’m going to savour the blank palette for a while!

Have a great Tuesday!
