A Long Week Goes By… Life Continues

My blog reminds me that my life is changing….  I arrive and realize it’s been a week since I last posted – that never would have happened a year ago.

Blogging has been an outlet for me, damn that I’m not able to make extra time for it…

I am humble under God’s powerful hand so He will lift me up when the right time comes.  I give all my worries to Him, because He cares about me.

1st Peter 5:6-7

Trying to find my place, in my  own life…   trying NOT to let worry and fear creep my mind, because I am fully aware that is the evil that walks this earth.

The Lord will perfect all that concerns me.

Psalm  138:8

This should have been a Sunday post, right?  Yesterday I met up with someone to discuss marketing and found him to be a fellow Christian walking the faith – he gave me a copy of scriptures that he keeps on him – 3 pages full – and my intent is to speak these out whenever I can.

Last week I completed a commission for a wonderful client – I miss her already.  I’ll have to go back and get some completed photos when her new furnishings arrive but here are a few

The walls all received a soft custom mix of silver paints

The Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen started custom silver but I added an additional finish using Gold and Silver Palette Art and some Dark Brown glaze –

We had a weekend loaded with soccer

Jules team made it to State Cup quarterfinals so we had to drive mid-state to play Saturday, which they won, then back Sunday for the semifinal which they just lost 2-1…  loved this picture of her in action-

As much as we enjoy the sport, it can really suck up a weekend.

This week  I’m back at the store. I have a cabinet job I’m glazing in store, and a job on the west side of town all day Friday.  I found some time yesterday to dabble around the store –  I continued an Off-White Reclaim dresser that has been  ‘in process’

found a mirror I’d stored in it and refinished that using the Texture Basecoats-

and gilded some twigs I found in the parking lot field…  need those to dress up the sparkly skeleton that my mom brought me for the store decor-

I’ll post specifics in separate posts.

Yesterday we had an inspector at the house for 3 hours – I guess inspecting and confirming that, yup, the potential buyers look to be getting one hell of a deal on this dastard house.   The bank approved the short sale –  but refused to release us of the remaining debt obligation ,  not unless we wanted to toss in a boat load of cash, that we don’t have.   Serious?   Can you tell I’m not warm and fuzzy about it all?  I need to go brush my teeth to remove the bad taste.    I need to remind myself,


that God is in control

It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

Psalm 18;32
