I am having so much fun slowly painting my sun room. I am so excited to make this little walk thru room all about me. It is where all my crafting supplies are, my little hutch I love, my computer..it has really become my area of the house. It makes me happy that now it is becoming a color that reflects me and makes me feel good.
I decided to paint the wall that is on the dining area side of the sun room too. I think it looks better this way. The color is Harbor Lane--the new paint with primer that Ace Hardware has been advertising. I am really happy with it! I think it is great paint!
I think it makes my chandelier look even prettier to be against this color now. I am going to work more on the sun room tonight. I like doing just a little at a time..that way I don't have to move everything out all at once.
If I was to describe this color I would say it is very fresh and airy. I think it goes well with the beachy feeling I try to create in our house. I love the beach. I guess it is appropriate my name is Sandy! I love this paint color.
Next I am going to share a scrapbooking layout I did years ago and had forgotten all about. Eileen brought it to me because the company that I used to design for (and that she was the creative director for) wanted to give it back to me because after all these years they didn't need it anymore. There was several layouts I got back but I really love this one...
I remember this day at the beach...I had gotten this outfit for Chantel on Ebay. Isn't it the cutest thing ever? I loved it. I wanted to do a portrait session with her and she was ready. She danced all over the beach and I got probably over a 100 wonderful pictures. Everyone on the beach was watching us..and Chantel was hamming it up. She has so much personality.
I loved how I used the clay to make the title and then filled in the stamped letter part with a glaze that made it look full of water. I also love how I added the little seashells and pink flowers. I used to be quite the scrapbooker! I should do it more now..but now I am always busy painting and sewing. I am going to frame this and hang it in the sun room--the pink will look gorgeous against the aqua of the wall!
It has been so heart warming how many of you have been asking how Gage is. He went back to school today and I think he has kicked this sickness! He came home all giggly...
But soon he was sound asleep...
By the stains on his hands I am guessing he finger painted today. I am always amazed at how brave his assistant is with her art projects she does with him. I am guessing she ended up covered in finger paints!:)
Thanks for visiting--all the friendships I have made here mean so much!
