Today was filled with what seemed like a thousand things and I was not able to work on my art projects. However, we had a most wonderful day together. At the end of the day, Michael was tormenting "Monkey" with a long piece of cording that I had discarded on the floor earlier in the week. While I was checking emails, Michael crawled underneath my work table, grabbed Monkey and put him in (what we call) "lock- down". That's where he wraps his arms around Monkey, and keeps him from moving. They were both just 2 feet away, right under my feet; so, I took a few pictures. What a blessed way to end a day. What we thought were just a few fun shots, that had come out really blurry, we ended up with a series of black and white art pieces that look more like pencil sketches. I simply used Microsoft Picture Editor to reduce the color saturation, increase the contrast and lighten the monotones.
For those of you who have been following me on Hometalk.com, you are already aware of all the work that went into making this 1964, single-wide, mobile home into what it is today. We have enjoyed living in it for the past two and half years. However, we will eventually be moving to North Carolina and therefore will be putting our little house on the market. If you are interested in buying it, please leave a comment. It is located in Rancho Cordova, California in a gated senior park and the lot space per month is under $700. Take a look around and let others know who are 55+ and would like to own this little house. Let me know if you have any questions. It will come with lots of little extra's!
Living Room will come with the floor to ceiling oak wall unit, the Faux Fireplace Heater, the floor lamp, and the large framed mirror.
Kitchen includes a new refrigerator, new Range Top, microwave, toaster oven, and a wave oven. If you want the built in desk that can also be arran…
This took forever! After transforming the 24 inch Bratz Dolls into "Just K.I.D.S" as part of the campaign to help rescue kids trapped in the sex trafficking industry, I got the crazy idea to convert a vintage suitcase into a doll trunk. After making the inside compartments and decoupaging and hand painting the entire outside of the suitcase (both front and back) the set is now complete and up for auction on Ebay.
Leave a comment if you want to bid on this amazing doll trunk. You even get to pick which doll you want to be included.
As promised, the following are some "after" pictures. We have moved everything in and organized most of our things. We still have several all day projects, like replacing the diverter valve and the washers in the shower. Currently no functioning shower; but, I can always take a bath until we can get this done. Yuck!
No time to write. Just enough time to post a few pictures:
