How many days until this party? 24? anyway, I was getting a bit overwhelmed by it all so Marc suggested I approach this as a business woman. "Make a list of all your projects" he suggested. So I did. 2 pages worth of projects I'm either in the middle of or on the verge of starting. What!:!"!:?!: I need help. I prayed & as I was asking Him to send me an intern or friend a song bubbled up in me. I say of the Lord You are my shield, my strength, my fortress, deliverer, my shelter, strong tower....my very present help in time of need. And there I have it....He is my help! He helps me in all I do as long as I continually put my trust in HIM according to Proverbs 3:5-6.
So as far as projects I NEED His help on:
coffee table turned into art with old fence wood, sconces and a photograph (drill holes for carriage bolts & mount photograph)
large map art—finished the medium one tonight and have the large one to tackle…..Joann don’t worry I have one more place to look for the one element I’m missing….hang in there!
crosses (jeweled or maps)
an amazing Louis Shanks chair --paint & recover
Trunk cabinet—paint & distress legs from side table, install legs, strip varnish from trunk, add shelves inside
Light fixture—pressure wash, install lighting inside---IF I get this one finished this will be one for the books
Our Sign!!! Big pineapple yellow sign needs to be painted & framed out
2 lamps---paint, get lamp shades
Make art from the top of the end table we disassembled
Drawer from the table is a display shelf lined with OLD foreign stamps
Tree footboard—might be able to put this one off since we’re considering using this one for a while THEN selling it. Would love to show it off though….a real work of art!
Grandma’s bracelet---a few pins & special things from my
mom’s mom I want to wear as a bracelet then make a sister to sell---vintage earrings, coins, pendants, awards, pins & even an old small bell to add to the vintage chain!
Key necklaces---Marc does all the jewelryJ
Laptop table covered in an old map---wanna keep this one and would still love to show it as a sample of what we like to createJ we’ll see if it makes the cut
Magnets---already have 6 made & I really love them. Used old rusted metal with vintage costume jewelry & crystals….so much fun to make these
Faith, Hope, Love Clock—need to add the back for hanging then send to Nino, my clock maker
Love art—I guess all I have to do is add the back hardware but its SO big it’ll take 2 people to make sure its on straight.
5 window art displays---have to work all 5 (if I have the time) on Photoshop to get to the printers…..Photoshop better behave!!!! I worked for a while yesterday & today on this…Miracle from heaven….I’m READY! Thanks GOD….I love you.
This is just my project list….NOT my to do list for party prep.
OH LORD….please help…please. I would love for people to just get a good picture of what we do & what we create. Everyone wants a unique conversation piece (or 10) in their house. Trust me! I’m a decorator & I know what my clients want. I know the right eyes will see our work & even though not everyone will love it, there will be those that appreciate what we do & the Favor of God on our lives!
Ni-night….I’ll let you know tomorrow how things are looking & how we’re coming along.
