Where have I been? No, I'm asking you becauseI have no idea...It's all a blur!

Hi there!  Once again, focusing a lot on Facebook.  I'm just so comfortable with it.  I need to pick this blogging thing up and run with it.  Getting a new computer, hopefully next week, and it will be faster and have more bells and whistles...so I'm hoping that will inspire me to play a little more.  I work on a dinosaur PC now.  Oh yeah.... I've also been busy working on some furniture. I also moved into a 6700 sq ft warehouse.  That has been a job.  I have no idea where I put all the furniture around the house (oh yeah, around the house is where I put it...literally).  It has taken me a month and a half to move it all because I also had to continue to work.  I finally hired some moving help and that was one of the smarter decisions I made.  He moved all the big stuff or things that would not fit in the back of my SUV.  Thankfully the shop is only 8 minutes from my house so there was not a lot of time on the road.  Business is good..hills and valleys like any other business I guess.  I moved to the warehouse because my homeowners insurance company said..."Uh, no!'  So, now I pay rent.  Ugh!  But it's a great rental rate for the amount of space I have.  I rent a little spot of it to a girl I buy furniture from sometimes and I hope to start classes soon to help pay the rent.  Little nervous about that...well, a lot nervous about that but that's how most things start out!  I'm posting a picture of my latest project.  It is for sale.  Not a special order.  Hope you like it and I'll try to get back on the blog a lot more often!

This is one of my newer pieces.  It is a solid wood hooded chest of drawers. 

I did the base color in Tropical Seas which really looks like turquoise blue.  I then washed white over it and heavily distressed it.   Next I drilled new holes and put on new turquoise enamel/porcelain knobs.

I put a diamond shape, then a flower shape and vice versa..  Liked to mix it up a bit.

When I say heavy distressing, I mean it.

I loved working on this.  I love the hooded portion.  It's a very unusual piece.  It is going to be used at a preschool, which I think is precious, as well as smart.  No worries about a scratch or two which is bound to happen at a preschool!

New Additions!

I have made a decision... I am going to become an expert blogger...just don't know when. LOL.  I'm going to try to devote a little time everyday to reading my Bible and working on my blog.  Starting with the Bible first and then we will see how this blogging thing goes!  Trying to create a habit.  But, here are some of the things I have been working on since I last made an entry.  Little note....on the blue console...I am going to paint the inside doors...just ran out of paint and wanted to get a picture while it was overcast.  For some reason my colors come out better on my camera if it is overcast outside...  I am not a photographer.  After I master blogging I think I will work on my photography skills.  Also, the pink Cinderella vanity was a donated piece I made exclusively for the 2012 Gala for Children - Cinderella: Rock the Ball event held out at Kyle and Patty Petty's farm.  I'm told a lot of women came in ball gowns and had their pictures made at the vanity.  They says they will send me pictures of this... when I get them I will post them.  I can't wait to see that.  They took my picture beside it when I dropped it off.  Let's just say that will stay for my eyes only.  Definitely was not in a ball gown or expecting to get my picture made.  LOL.

Still Trying To Get The Hang of This BLOGGING Thing!

I don't blog often so each time I come here I have to retrain myself on what I need to do.  I'm sure I am really missing out on the benefits of blogging....but right now I'm in ignorant bliss!    I know I am following several blogs, but it looks as if I am only following one.  I have no idea how that happened.  My only guess is that I am following all of them as ME, Angie...and the one listed that I am following is being followed asby Full Circle.  Who knows?  Not me.  Any way... going to post more pics of items I have been working on.  Most are sold or were special orders. 

One new thing to report- I think it's pretty exciting.  I have been asked to donate a piece to a benefit silent auction for Randolph Partnership for Kids at the Kyle Petty Farm.  I'm very excited.  There is a Cinderella theme.  I am donating a vanity.  I"m thinking it will be a soft pink and I will line the drawers with black and white brocade fabric and the vanity stool I am getting to go with it has twisted wrought iron legs like ice cream parlor chairs.  I will put the black and white brocade on the seat and pad and tuft it.  The knobs will also have a black and white brocade print on them as well... At least that is the plan right now...I'm a woman... I may change my mind!  LOL.   

Back soon with more to post.......
