She has a nice wide spot above her bed that she wants me to do an Eiffel Tower painting, so I finally just started working on that last night on my brand new desk from IKEA. Here's a peek at the start of it. The only other thing she requested in the painting was a pink poodle, so I have to find a perfect spot for that as well as add some more detail. Just wanted to show you the start of it. The one below is the painting just a little bit futher. I'm enjoying painting with only two soft lamps lit and Christmas music playing in the background. Must be the new desk that's making me feel so peaceful or could it be that I have been reorganizing the office? Hmmm....it's amazing what getting rid of clutter can do.
Also, my dad built her a homemade bookshelf when I was still pregnant, but it's light periwinkle and soft yellow, so that's also on the project list for me to finish. I've been sort of procrastinating on this one too, but I want to get moving because she has books and trinkets all over the house that need to go back to their home on the bookshelf. I'm thinking of painting it white and having the inside back of it deep pink with some black diamond-shapes or some pattern. On the side that can be seen when you walk in the door I was thinking of adding some black and deep pink and maybe painting or putting a stick-on black chandelier. Any ideas of what would look cute to funk up the bookcase? I'd love to hear them.
I also just ordered some materials to make some of my favorite paintings into little glass tile pendants to add some new items into my etsy shop. Prints are on the horizon too as I got a new Epson printer and Photoshop Elements. Hopefully I can keep going on all these projects and start the holiday shopping, decorating and cookie-baking as well.
I hope you'll stop by to see the updated painting and finally her completed bedroom. Thanks for visiting today!
