I’ve put a little time and space between me and this blogging thing and I feel at peace and refreshed. For the last couple of weeks I concentrated solely on what makes me feel really, really good. Somehow I got caught up with the crowd in blogging and lost sight of the thing that makes me tick and makes us lots of money! With this fresh insight I am ready to share again.
The Brindley’s valance boards are all installed around the ceiling of the store and I’ve made all the tweaks and additions to pull everything together. Today Bob and I are working on signs to be fastened to the shelving to rise above the different types of wines. Open house is next weekend so we are under the gun to get them done. Nothing like pressure to keep those creative juices flowing!
Last week I spent several days disconnected from Brindley’s and worked in a condo up on Orchid Beach. This job was very relaxing for me. I had the pleasure of painting where my heart lies without any constraints. The clients are away and the decorator pretty much let me do my thing. In the foyer I painted a mural of sea oats, beach signs, a sandcastle and seashells. The interior designer, Catherine Kerr is having a cream colored rug custom made to go with the beach theme. The rug company will carve waves and a couple of footprints into the rug for the finishing touch….how cool is that?! The next area I painted was the guest bathroom. The walls were so nice and smooth, unlike the textured walls I am used to here in Florida. This room is beachy also with a driftwood mirror and a mural of sea turtles and driftwood. I took photos of the work as I always do and looking at them at home I know I need to go back to tweak the mural a little bit before I show it to the world..LOL After that I have five canvases to do for this job. They are simple and straight forward so shouldn’t take much time to execute. Lots of fun and lots of great things happening.
