I'm not the neatest painter in the world and if anyone had any doubts about that, you'd just have to look at my arms and hands right now. Totally speckled and dotted with white primer paint on every uncovered surface. I made sure to keep my newly pedicured toes free of paint, though since they're so adorable with little flowers on them. I couldn't resist!
The entire wall got primed - the bottom half had to be second coated because of the dark green that used to be on it - but when I started applying the lavender paint I'd purchased months and months ago, I felt like there was too much of a red undertone going on, so I stopped. I'll make a trip to Lowe's Monday morning to pick out a similar soft lavender, but with more of a blue undertone. I like my bedroom to be a cool, soft place with only things that really make me happy. Mom's getting jealous because the bedroom color she inherited in the new house is really, um, bright. Like a bright orangy yellow. Did I mention it's bright?? I think I see painting in her future soon too.
So many things yet to do. I promised ya'll photos of the goodies I purchased in Milwaukee. I have some packages to mail Monday. Samples to finish - that's my favorite part - I haven't had a lot of time recently to sit and bead so it will be like a treat to park on the sofa with some good movies. And I need to get my supply orders made in the next day or two. I've got shows scheduled every three or so weeks between now and the end of August, so I need to get out ahead of it and try to be prepared for all of them. Try. Critical word there.
A special note to my friends and family in the Midwest, dealing with all the flooding catastrophes - you're in my heart and I'm thinking of you at this tough time. Stay strong.
