Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

moving right along…

conical confectionsI am having so much fun getting ready for the Farm Chicks Show Set up is tomorrow and usually by now I am living in a constant state of STRESS {alarm, anxiety, disquietude, flutter, intensity, nervous tension, nervousness, urgency, worry…}  Ok…well, the intensity is still there!  But I can handle a constant state of intensity…in fact, that’s exactly what my procrastination produces and I like it – the adrenalin is just-a-flowin’.

I’m working on some fun stuff…

OLD Victrola

I drug in this old Victrola to use for display.  I used decoupage to adhere sheet music to one of the shelves.

I have painted a wonderful, old dresser RED to use in my booth…

 I’m going to use it to set my cash register on – I’ll use the drawers for my stuff and the back of it will face the customer.  I painted the inset slabs with chalkboard paint so I can write something fun on it like, “Vintage Charm”.  😉

misc stuff

Today is my 26th anniversary!  I’m thankful, happy and blessed!

My daughter (21) made it safely to Germany this week where she will spend 1½ months.

My chicks are progressing nicely so are my kittens.  The sad part about the kittens is that they are still in the house because my sweet & not-so-innocent dog is way too fond of them.

My unread blog posts that I subscribe to through Google Reader, are up to 200!

I love RED!
