It's Thursday morning and I'm usually picking up my chalk paint order to run to the shop and then take off for places unknown to go junking.
This week my girl that works on Thursdays is on vacation so I'm here for the day....a long day into night as we are having an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint workshop right here at Winsome Cottage.
As the business day progresses I go over my list of things to do before it gets too late, moving furniture and getting tables set up. I make sure there is room for the ten people that will be attending. I cover tables with paper and make sure everyone has all that is needed at each place to complete their project.
It's a rather quiet business day today so I am able to finish up quickly. Several texts back and forth between Debra( the instructor) and I to make sure we have everything before the workshop begins.
Someone calls to see if they can get in to the workshop at the last minute. Couldn't I just make an allowance?? I have to be the "bad guy" and tell them we are maxed out this session so "no". This happens once or twice each time we have something like this in the shop.
I stand back and double check the set up. Looks like we're ready.
Debra Campbell is our instructor and full of information and expertise. She loves to teach and makes the workshop interesting.
A great evening and I learn something new everytime. One idea I came away with is simple "barcelona orange" over "provence." That will be the next piece! Sounds beautiful, thanks Debra!
And speaking of orange....we are now in full swing and this is the newest window piece that I just finished...
