|looong weekend. man. and not in a good way. so, friday, i painted my studio. my mom in law helped, as did heather for a bit. i went to get another gallon of paint, we had run out...i brought my swatch, but went to a different lowe's, resulting in a different color. which i didn't fully realize until this morning, when i saw the roller marks all over the wall. man. so, i went back to lowe's who told me that i needed to go to the other one to get the paint for it to be the right color. so, to-morrow, i have to get groceries, a match to that paint, and a bunch of other things that i have forgotten already. shit. shit! also, i didn't realize that i had picked the most expensive paint in the frickin store. 26 bucks a gallon. and i hope the give me the other bucket. rip off! on the upside, it looks really great. i am going to do brown trim, but i am not worried about that at the moment.|
i convinced jake that instead of wasting space, we could get brackets and boards and make a bookshelf in the space just at the top of the stairs that will perfectly fit, no wasted space like a regular bookshelf would do. and it is like 5 feet wide. yeah! anyway, we spent the day picking everything out and trying not to make it cost a million dollars. jake didn't want to use the studs, but instead put plugs in, because it would not have been symmetrical, the screws are wanting to pull out of the wall. my idea, is to put storage under the first shelf and then at each end of the shelves for a bit more support. i think it will work. jake would rather buy something, but i think this will be nicer, make better use of the space, and i can get all the books out of the studio, i may keep some, but i want to make it as spacious as possible. i wish it could get it done faster. i get so tired when i push myself. i get a migraine whenever i do. sucks.
we went to a local saturday craft market, which i am thinking about getting involved in, i think i said that already. i bought a gorgeous tree of life necklace, which is jewish symbolism, which was made out of an old dime. really amazing. my camera is broken again, but i will try to take photos. i got peeps a "spoiled" pink neckything. some organic lipbalm, jake got all different flavors of homemade rootbeer, which he loooooves, i got heather's puppy's matching ladybug neckthingys, the herrings a nut roll...oh, and i got the idea to make those knitted soap holder things. you know, that come with soap in them? i think if it were packaged in a cute way, it would sell as a gift...i need to do a prototype...
oh, also, i want to go to the berry farm if i can tuesday. before berry season is over. so sad!
i spun a bit today and combed out the silk/bamboo stuff i dyed, which looks like hair. it is really creepy. i may spin it alone. it feels so very nice. mmmmm. smells so very gross.
i am moving stuff out of the shop this coming weekend.
