Always Be Open to New Ideas
"Always be open to new ideas": That's what my fortune cookie said today. No, I didn't order Chinese food. I picked up my bridesmaid dress at the tailors. And the cookie was acutally given to JK, not me. So, anyone have any "new ideas" for me? I'm feeling blah (tired and icky, though not quite ill), and couldn't think of anything new to post (since I'm still not done the patio cushions), so I thought I'd show JK's current favourite thing in her bedroom. Every time I carry her in and out of the room, we have to stop by her dresser to point at this box and open and close it a few times. She loves it. I painted this box for her baby shower. Inside are some messages that the guests wrote (or scribbled in my niece's case) for JK. This is only one of two kinds of flowers I can paint. The other kind is pansies. I've painted boxes for each of my four nieces, so I figured I'd do one for JK as well. I must say that my technique and design have both drastically improved since the first one. I was 15 when my first niece was born. I just love the colour inside the box. It's a craft paint (I don't remember the brand) called "Adobe Red".
