I've Been Painting

My time for art has been completely taken up by trying to get our house ready to sell. Every wall has been repainted and every inch of flooring has been replaced. Okay, the carpet in our walk in closet survived, but everything else had to go. I'm not the best housekeeper and my kids love dirt. White carpet just didn't work for our family. We now have beautiful, easy to clean laminate flooring. No more food stains, not to mention those potty training accidents. A trip to the dump and that is all behind us. The house is starting to look pretty good. All those things taht I have wanted done for the last four years are finally coming together. Now for the trim, little details and through clean up in the yard and we are good to go! Maybe then I will have my life back. Well, at least until we sell this place and have to pack up to move.
Now its time to get back to work!

Wow, you've done lots of work! It all looks great. I'm especially partial to the blue you chose in the first picture; I have something very similar in my sewing space.

You have been doing a great job and I hope you will find buyers very soon.

Where are you moving to? CA perhaps?

Hi Nikki. It's been a while. Wow - are you sure you want to move? What an adorable home - love all the shades of blues, and the wood floors - kinda like a Van Gogh canvas - waiting for sunflowers! Oooh - didn't I see some sunflowers? Love the little shed - perfect for a studio. I know you are on to better things. Where are you moving to??
