Love it!

On a side note, see how red is coming back? Just pops of it here and there.
I love this time of year. Even though I don't subscribe to the belief that resolutions have to take place at the beginning of each calendar year...there is something about this time of year. Maybe it's that (some of us) we have lived with snow for a few months now and are itching for spring. So we clean. So many people are emailing me to help with changes. I love it! I am feeling the bug, too! I already had a little list, hanging on my fridge, of things to do around the ol' homestead but for some reason my focus has gotten sharper with the holidays behind us. Paint is calling my name. I want to learn to sew so that I don't have to keep bugging my friend Char. I have a good number of little sewing projects that need to get done. Not to mention organizing. Oh, my! The organizing that needs to be done in my garage, office, and closets. But I'm up for the challenge. Excited even. Now if I could just find some money to implement said changes!

But my purpose for this post today? Keep sending me your questions. I don't charge for those simple questions and I love it! That stuff is easy and fun.It keeps me closer to sane. It keeps me reminded why I do this. HOWEVER, I am working on a job right now that is SO difficult. I have caught myself asking myself "WHY do I do this? I'm in way over my head!" But then YOU, wonderful YOU, call me or email me with a quick "Wendy, what color should I paint this?" and I'm back to a smile. THANK YOU!

The job that has me flumoxed is a slightly "Tudor" design with Italian Ornate finishes inside. My sweet client wants it to feel "beachy", "cottage-like." My hands are tied, though. I can't change paint. Or floors. Or cabinets. Or furniture. I'm trying...but I think I'm in over my head. Wish me luck. Give me pointers. What would you do?
