Add painting to that list will you?

My 4 year old nephew's toy chest has been sitting in my hallway for weeks now. Apparently he told his mom
" if Auntie Sharon paints my toy chest, I'll like her a lot". So of course I had to do it cos I like being liked especially by HIM!

Since I spent the majority of yesterday snoozing, I was determined to do something constructive with myself by getting this thing painted already.

Was meant to take a BEFORE picture but forgot until after I'd already started. Anyway, you can sort of see how it was before and then once it was done.

Just need to add a protective clear coat and little man will be good to go!

Hoping he'll like me a lot when he sees it :-)

Lots of Lip Service

So today I had the crazy idea to make a ton of lip balm. A ton being in the 250 tubes range. I now have plenty of every flavor except for mango which I decided not to replenish this time around. Instead of mango, I've introduced a brand new one - Rum & Raisin. Can't wait to see if it does well. It smells just like the real deal, rich and creamy and sweet!

Two Words.... all it took to make me look at myself differently.

A couple days ago, I was on Twitter and got a private message. It said "You Rock". Of course I raised an eyebrow at such a message as I was a bit confused. I sent a message back saying thank you and asking how come? Part of the response was "well, you are funny, talented & motivated & I appreciate you as an artist"

Now, this message was sent to me not just by a virtual friend but by an individual who I highly admire. By a woman who I wish I could be like. By an individual who I've looked up to long before she even knew who I was.

For the past couple days I've mulled over those 2 little words in my head again and again. I've looked at myself from every possible angle to try to see what she sees. I can't say that I'm there yet but I feel good knowing that someone who I look up to thinks this of me.

Thank you virtual friend. If only you knew, I think YOU ROCK even more :-)
