Well nothing new this Wednesday; same kitchen counter, same mess.
I'm currently working on a card for my best friends daughter. Arin will be 16 soon and I wanted to make a Sweet 16 card, but nothing is working. I've pulled out a pink pearl flourish, and painted and glittered clipboard (the 16) but the only thing I like with the pink is black. Now I can't decide if black is appropriate for a 16 year old girl. I know that not so long ago when I was 16 .... **looks around for the lightening to strike** .... I would have loved a black and pink card. However thats me and not Arin. I'm thinking I need to let this go and change directions; maybe try again to make something in lavender, her favorite color.
As for the use of the kitchen counter as my craft space; there is light at the end of this tunnel. I found a cabinet maker who is going to draw up a "desk" for me. I found a really simple counter height table at Crate & Barrel 2; its the perfect height and size for my small craft room. However the one at C&B2 was $500 and white laminate, no way was I paying that for something so simple. We discussed modifications and once we work out a final design I should have a great desk in 6 to 8 weeks. Woohoo!!!
Looking forward to getting my pretty kitchen back to rights.
