The studio was hustling and bustling today. My mom and Kriste came to help, since we had a huge to-do list. We worked together to get everything ready for the workshop tomorrow. We have four lovely ladies attending and I’m pretty excited that it’s a small workshop. I think they are more relaxed and you really have the chance to talk. I also get to pamper these ladies with a fun “buffet” of things to glitter…
And pretty ribbons and twine to replace those flimsy, stretchy metallic hangers.
And they each get a “Merry & Bright” banner and a full jar of glitter to take home.
We included some inspiration on the table as well.
While Kriste was working on that, my mom and I were working on the slipcover for my mom’s wing chair (as well as making a video tutorial as I was doing it.) I had too may things to do to get it done, but I hope to work on it more on Monday.
My mom also made a pillow for the chair. She was fretting over it and I kept hearing oh-goodness-es and oh-no’s, but it turned out just fine. We even were able to fit in some of the blue she wanted. A cording that was in my stash was the perfect trim to coordinate with the fabric I selected for her room.
I actually made the bedskirt already, but I haven’t had a chance to take a picture of it. I didn’t make a tutorial, either, because I was pushing to get it finished. You see, it was her birthday on Wednesday and finishing the skirt was my gift. I also took her out to dinner and managed to clock myself in the face with her car door, but we had a nice time despite my clumsiness. (I actually was bleeding and the door hit me with such force that it twisted my head and gave me whiplash. Yeah, I can be a disaster at times.)
Anyway, I also worked on a couple of fun photo shoots.
I’ll share more pictures in a few days, but I was just loving this little corner of my studio today. I wanted to take it all home and make it fit somewhere. Maybe in the next house…
I’m off to get a good night sleep. I have the workshop tomorrow and then Jeff & I are cutting down the wood for my parent’s built-ins and he’s taking me to see the last Hunger Games movie.
Another busy day…
