i like projects

I'm a project person. It seems like I always have five things going on at one time! Although my husband is extremely handy and talented, he is gone a lot for work, so he is not always around to get things done that I would like done. I decided I wanted to get my deck stained. It had never been stained/sealed before and was starting to look grey. I chose a tinted stain called redwood and it looks really nice. On the first day I could only get half of it done and once the rain decides to stop I will be able to get the other half. 

I was able to go to the flower shop on Friday and Saturday for training. I never knew how much went into running a flower shop! So much to learn and do. I learned how to make corsages and boutonnieres for a wedding which was super fun. I also learned the art of bow making.  I just loved being there and can't wait to go back this week. 

Yesterday I painted the entryway in my house (I told you I have five things going on at once). I used the same grey blue color that is in my hallway and living room. It makes my whole home feel more finished. I would really love to find a black entryway bench with storage baskets underneath to put in there. I know I saw one at Hobby Lobby a while back. I wonder if they still have it? It also needs some artwork. I will show you a picture when I am finished. Today I hope to get the house clean so that the rest of the week I can make some artwork and relax.

Enjoy this memorial day. Thank you soldiers!
