It's the middle of July people, summer will pass by so fast it's a blur. I don't know why I'm shocked, it does this every year. I just realized it's time to get to work on Christmas ornaments, YES, that's right I said the word Christmas. I must be getting old because I can't seem to keep up anymore. Am I the only one that struggles to stay ahead of the game or is everyone else thinking about Christmas at this point in the year.
I'm interested in painting some furniture now, my friends and I got together and went to some cool antique shops, well one was an antique mall, it was huge. I found a couple of tables that I'm going to play with. I'm wondering if I should buy some chalk paint or try making my own. There are instructions to make your own chalk paint on Pinterest ( yes Pinterest has become another of my weaknesses ), the prices of chalk paint are a little high so I think I'm going to play with it and see what I come up with. It should be fun. I'll let you know how my homemade version works.
On another note we have a new member coming into the Craft Guild Shop. George McWilliams will be joining us the 1st of August. His artwork will be in the shop by August 2nd and he's planning to have a drawing workshop on Saturday Aug. 3rd and the watercolor workshop on the 4th. This is a great time to learn from one of the best, I hope everyone will come out and support our newest member.
Well until next time I hope you dust off your brushes and find some time to paint and of course stay cool.
