Another order ready to go and the fact that I get to go to Montreat, NC to deliver it is icing on the cake. This fun checkerboard ottoman was ordered by a friend at ARW and I was told to do it in 'Leslie colors'. She likes blues and greens more than orange and pinks so I think this will work... at least I hope she likes it!! I do... and would love to use this combination in another piece!
I have been so blessed to have my Mom here for the month of April. She may not have thought it was such a blessing since I included her in all my plans. LOL I think she used to do that to me so turn about is fair play!
We enjoyed some time on the patio in the sun as we punched letters for signs, worked on centerpieces, punched out designs for some of the game pieces, and did what ever popped up! Thanks Mom, it was fun having you here!
The theme for the week at ARW is 'Unexpected Unexplained'. Sounds like it would be easy to work with, but not so much. How do you do things different without people thinking you are being lazy by not doing everything as you have done it before? We'll see if what I've prepared works!
Here's a stack of cut foam core boards that will be used as a different type of door tags. I'm looking forward to seeing how this week plays out. Wish you could be here!!
A friend of mine, Lee Webb has just written a book titled "Go Outside" and the book release will be on May 5th. You can check it out at altonleewebb.com I look forward to getting a copy and meeting all the fantastic folks that have actually "Gone Outside"!
I was honored to be able to work with Lee, his wife Rachel, and their friends to plan this event and I am so sorry to miss the festivities. This is one of the centerpieces I made for the evening. They'll sit on top of whiskey barrels in the Brick Room venue in downtown Shelbyville.
