Waiting on the paint...

Well, I went to Walmart today to get more paint, since I ran out late last night.




They didn't have the base that I needed, so I asked if mom would grab some for me while she was in Idaho Falls.











Since the painting wasn't going to happen and because of the fact that I was already at Walmart... I decided to buy some canvas material.



I also went to a lumber place and bought the wood.







Then I sewed the curtains...



















and hung them...












sewed together and ironed the two pieces of material for the top of the duvet cover...













called to ask if I might be able to use Uncle Russ' saw to cut all the wood into pieces...

and he ended up cutting them for me and they look super!!! Thanks again, Uncle Russ!





These are my three frames that I still need to put together. The wood around them is some extra that uncle Russ cut into 16inch pieces so that I can make a square frame for something else.




Now I'm going to bed!!!

What the heck are you doing? You crafty little chicka... It looks cute & very exciting! I am looking forward to your visit in a few weeks. I think I miss you - Paige isn't here for me like she used to be (dumb boys!) So you want to take her place? I am going to do auditions I think (But you'd be the winner for sure if you want the job!)

Luff, your new sister :)

I like the curtains! That was nice of Uncle Russ, he probably did it pretty quickly too! It's all coming together nicely!
