Hello out there! Did you miss me?

Hello! It has definitely been a while since I last posted.
Let me see, my children's school is closing for good. But the good news is they are going to make it a private school. They will no longer be under the diocese's thumb. Hurray! That is some well deserved good news.
  And I am still currently working on my house. I have made some Tobacco Cloth inspired drapes using 90 grade cheesecloth.  I think it is very similar and much more affordable. I also dyed them in walnut ink to give them more of  an aged look.

Pretty good don't ya think?  I also made a little trip on Saturday to a local Prim shop. Well, no.
Actually, I went with my husband to drop off the van AGAIN to be fixed. I remembered that there was a Prim shop around the corner that I never got to visit because it is only open on Friday and Saturday. But we went in and it was like heaven. I already have a shelf in mind to purchase when I get my pay check on friday. It will look perfect in the family room. Anyway,  my husband was chatting up the owner and mentioned to her that I made prims. She was very interested in seeing my work. We exchanged cards and she told me whenever I had the chance to give her a ring so I could bring my work down to the store so she could get a look at it. I am quite excited and nervous at the same time.  I don't know what to bring to her. Eeek!  So, this weekend I will pulling stuff out and quite possibly making a few things.  Wish me luck!

But I just wanted to pop back on to let you know I am still alive. I just have been extremely busy. I hope you do forgive my long absence.  But I will definitely keep you all posted.

Have a Blessed week!

Hi Gen,
Good to see you and yes,you've been missed! I was thinking the other day of a few gals that haven't been around for some time and you were one of them, then I remembered you'd taken a job. Glad things worked out for the school.
How exciting for you to hopefully be creating things for the prim shop. I'm sure you've missed creating and your curtains turned out awesome!
Take care.

Glad to hear that the school closing is actually good news for you all, that could have been a very stressful situation!

The curtains are awesome! I didn't realize that cheesecloth had different grades, ha. I'll have to check that out next time I'm out. I love the way you have them pinned back and also love the pretty color the walnut ink made them.

How awesome that you might have a place to sell your prims! I hope it all worked out. I would LOVE to find a place like that around here but alas, I live in shabby country... no prims around here. =[ So consider yourself very fortunate!!
