Made (in) the shade.

Hello friends! How is your summer going? I haven't been very productive. The great thing about having my own studio/office is that it is outside of the house. The bad thing about having my own studio/office space is that is outside of the house. I really cannot expect the kids to spend but a few minutes hanging out whilst I do my thing. Just what it is. And summer isn't forever and the kids won't be kids forever. So we'll do summer and worry about being productive later.

I did manage to put up the curtain panels in the Jackitat (Jack's recently redone room). I took your advice and used the orange swirly material. The curtain panels look great, but really cut the light into the room...so I found these groovilicious old lamps on the ye ole Ebay. The lamps have Honduran tikis carved on all four sides. The lamps make me so happy. These lamp shades, however, do not make me so happy. From the outside looking in, how hard can it be to spray a lamp shade with spray adhesive and lay a piece of fabric over it? I know, right? Yeah, right. Drove me about out of my mind.

Have a beautiful day!

Wow, that girl has some muscles!
Those lamps are fantastic.

I haven't been productive either this summer. Ah well, I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts.

Jack's room looks fab.

Enjoy summer. I didn't do any work during our 3 week winter holiday, and I highly doubt much along the lines of work will be done here in summer.
