My Day Off

Well, technically, I still had to work, painted an apartment, but I took a day off from the shop today. I need an inspiration reboot. I did, however, drop off the artwork for my outside sign today! We made some changes, that at first I was not happy about, but the changes made sense. It isn't frilly and pretty, but it is readable and is able to grab traffic attention and I need that. They should be ready by Friday or Monday. I hope they turn out nice.

Anyhoo! I did manage to snap some pictures yesterday of more stuff in the shop to update. I seriously need to start finding local vendors and artists, I am ready. My goal of opening early May was a little off, I am shooting for late May/early June now. I still have so much work to do. But, here is some progress!

Some of the Art books I have been adding.

Some kids books and of course, a small selection of cat books!


Some cards, post cards and a fun book.

I actually had these two pieces of art that needed framed. So I finally found old frames I thought fit their design, painted the frames and framed them. I will never try to frame anything myself again. 

These two pieces are actually made of old pieces of fabric that I thought were just too awesome not to do something with. I stretched them over a washed canvas, did some embellishing and finally framed them. I really like the way they turned out! 
Got all my Winnie the Pooh books up. There are still a few I want to order, but that will have to wait a bit. 

My wooden Bella LuElla sign, I haven't hung it because it still needs a little something, it needs to be Cynthia-fied! 
We are still in the process of cleaning out the upstairs loft for a studio, so until then, I have stuff laying everywhere in the back room.

SCORE! I found these laying in an over grown area behind the house. I can't wait to see what I can do with them. I have been waiting for the rain to clean them :)

Tomorrow, I will head back to the shop and see what else I can get accomplished! For now, it is time to get dinner in the oven :)
