Hi everyone!! I’m done!!! YAY!!! I just finished most of my signs. (I do have 26 little signs to spray in the morning—not dry yet) I clearcoated all the others yesterday and put all the hangers on today. My hands are crampy now. Here’s a fun fact (?)—I use between 5000 and 6000 heavy duty sawtooth hangers every year! That means I pound in 10,000-12,000 nails every year! I’m surprised I don’t have Popeye arms by now! Tomorrow I have to tag everything and start to pack. Here is a shot of the new signs….
Including the 26 I will finish in the morning, I completed 174 signs. WHEW!! I finally hit a brick wall last night and couldn’t finish the last 12 boards I had. Here is a favorite piece of mine—a 36 inch door crown. I’m so tired of doing signs..I feel the need to paint folk art again.
Tomorrow Brian has his follow up with his surgeon. If everything is ok, he will be moving back into his apartment. It will be hard on me not seeing him every day. If I can see him, I know he is ok. But, he wants to be back at his place and I can’t blame him. He wants to get settled before his chemo starts. I’ll really miss him and his kitty. I’m sure he will be fine, he has a lot of his college friends living nearby that will be happy to help him if he needs it.
We got our acceptance from a new show today—it is in the Columbus Ohio area. Luckily, we were assigned an end spot, so I have more display area. I know I promised an announcement of some good news, but I have to hold off for a bit. Everything is ok, but just has to be finalized before I announce it. Our shows are about to begin and I am happy about that. We have several in Virginia this spring—like little mini vacations…that we work at. Our big shows start in June.
Al has finished a lot of wood for folk art for me—I’m anxious to get at them. I’m really trying to push out a lot this year—last year I sold out early and it is hard to paint more during my shows. There are probably 40 pieces of wood ready to paint. Well, Survivor is on—gotta go! Have a great night and enjoy your weekend!–Jan
