Ever so close....

I'm one more step closer to being finished! Yayyyy! I know it seems like it's taking me forever, maybe it is but I just can't seem to squeeze out any more time out of the days than I am now, not to mention the days are getting shorter.

Some days I'm in my office and I just wish I could be in my studio working or in my house sanding or painting. So many days I wished for that and have been planning my move to ease myself into my own business of decorative painting full time and, well, yesterday whether I liked it or not, my wish came true. I found out my grant monies had run their course and the new direction it is taking does not include myself or my county. It has given me a week to find a new job or get my business off the ground, *huge gulp* I guess it's sink or swim right? :) I have faith that this was meant to be, this is my path for whatever reason and it is going to lead me somewhere great whether it be my painting or something else. :)

Alright, so the reason I was posting was to show you that I am ever so close to finishing what will go down in my books as the "Infamous Porch Project of '07"

Thanks for stopping by and watching the progress. I really appreciated everyone's comments and encouragement.
