Victory over varnish

Sometimes its a struggle to get things done. This week is SO going to be like that. Nothing seems to want to cooperate with me!

This painting...
Was such a struggle! The painting was easy and came together pretty well, but the varnish took like 8 coats and sanding and redoing and UGH! But it came out ok, just with ten times the amount of work it should have...One lesson I always fail to retain about varnish is that spray just makes life easier! WHY can't I just remember that!! Its basically what saved this painting's life.

Now I have all these custom orders and things to do that all fall right before the wedding I am in on the weekend. Sigh! Thats always how it happens....

AND I have a super secret project I am working on, that needs urgently to be finished...Its my biggest sewing project ever! Oooh... next week...


  1. Aw, sorry about that. You can always bring your work with you to do between speeches and dance moves if you want. I won't mind. ;)

  2. Aww. I promised myself I wouldn't show up to your wedding with paint up to my elbows now you say its ok?? AWESOME!
