One thing I am enjoyed immensely is talking to other bloggers via "comments" and email responses, talking to 'live' people who read my blog and the blogs I have listed on my blog and reading the blogs of creative and kind people who share their "how I did it" tutorials and pictures. through their blogs. As the lady in the next booth said 'it makes people seem closer' with all the many ladies of all ages sharing parts of their lives through their blogs.
I tried my first painting of something I wanted to sell this week. I fell in love with the cage and bird, kept them home for several days and then put them in today.
I painted my first large piece of furniture and I am enjoying the new look and new vignettes that are possible on a new color base (welsh dresser).
I want to buy chalk paint and paint some more furniture. That is my next goal. The owner of the booth next to mine showed me her painted, sanded and waxed furniture today. I was amazed - wax makes the furniture look more vintage/aged but it does not look waxed. Its nice to get a close up and personal view of the finished project.
