Hello! It is monday, and I actually have a quote for you!! I'm shocked too. I've been a bit neglectful here on the blog in that department. In fact, I've been a bit neglectful on the blog.... period! :) I'm experimenting with a new look for the monday quotes. Not sure if I'm 100% sold, but so far I am liking it... plus I ran out of time experimenting, and needed to get something posted today! :)
Last week was a stressful week. One I would be okay not repeating anytime soon. It wasnt just horrible, but it had it's moments! So, today is a fresh new week and I am anxious to finish up a few projects. One being the square blogging templates I posted about back on the 19th... wow 10 days ago.
Time is just flying by.... Its almost summer!
You know how I have griped and complained about the color of our walls not photographing the best, or consistently? Well, Jaydon helped me create a couple portable wood backdrops for my science posters... and I LOVE them! We used some cedar boards we had on hand. I sanded them down and even helped cut them with the skill saw. I'm trying to get more comfortable using the saw, because I WANT to have the ability to make a few things for myself... without having to rely on my sweet husband to cut everything for me. I stained the two different colors, one I stained a dark charcoal gray, and the other I whitewashed. :) Here is the darker one in action:
I actually listed the moose antler poster a week or so ago, but wasnt totally LOVING the shot so I didnt blog or pin the poster. I like this look SO much better then how it was done before. I was pretty excited to still sell the poster for the first time last week- to a customer in Alaska! :) Always soo rewarding to sell a new piece for the first time. :)
Finishing up the backdrops inspired me to finish a new design, because you know I needed something to photograph against the whitewashed backdrop. I already shared a peek at it on instagram, but I'll be back later today to share it with a direct link into my shop. I'm waiting for the sun to be in just the right spot before I photograph it!
I'm feeling a little under the weather today, and I might try to make some hot tea in my CBTL machine for the first time. I'm not really a tea drinker though, hot or cold. How about you? Maybe I just dont know how to make a good cup of hot tea? Definitely staying in my sweats and oversized comfy sweater... I work better when I'm comfy. :D It is sunny today, but SUUUPER duuuper windy...
