It's a little past Monday morning so I wanted to check in and let you know that I did not fall victim to peanut butter related poisoning.
In fact, we've had a super productive weekend - one I've desperately been needing. We got to see lots of friends at Ryan's Grass Hut opening and all the art was spectacular, of course.
You can see most of it posted on the Grass Hut website and if you pockets are feeling heavy, you can even buy some for yourself. I think the word around the country is that everyone has too much money these days so this works out perfectly. You can take another peek at all of Ryan's pieces here, too.
After the show we got to eat out vegan hearts out with thesetwo cute friendlies which included a late night stop at Voodoo Donuts for sugar shock, more amigos, and bubble hockey wars.
The next morning we hosted a little brunch for even MORE greatamigos and then went to work on transforming our art room/studio. We moved in last June to a dark and shag carpeted room and had little time to do anything about it. We've settled for utter yuckiness for the better part of a year and I reached my breaking point at the end of last week.
With the help of Fred and Amanda and their built-in child laborer, we were able to get the carpet up quickly. In fact, it was so easy that I can't believe we endured potential cat urined shag for as long as we did. [We did steam clean the carpets but I'm not sure how much good it ever did.]
Then came the chore of trying to cover all that dark paint with white and we went to bed with the room looking like this:
Ick. I should probably go take care of that right now. Man, if I hated that mini-blind before, the white next to it makes it look about ten million times worse. Luckily this curtain is on its way.
The only bad news of the weekend is that Ryan got pretty sick on Sunday so I've been going it mostly alone and his new animal drawing will be a bit delayed. [Or else he's a really good faker to get out of helping me paint!]
Hopefully the next time we meet I'll have something similar to pretty "after" photos to share!
