Before my grand opening some friends came over and made some goodies.
I am so thankful for my good friends!
On Friday evening we received a message from very upset mom. She had a paint party set for her house on Saturday. This paint company is based in Columbia but travel. They sent her an email at about 3pm to let her know that they couldn't do the party. She called us to see if we could do it. We aren't really set up for travel but Tasha and I took on the job. The party was mermaid themed so I painted up something quick Friday night. On Saturday we had the open house, party at 1 and scheduled party at the store at 4.
It was a good day. I love doing painting parties with kids. They are so much fun and so opinionated about their art, which is a good thing.
We are making dog collars too, George modeled one.
I took Sunday and Monday off. Sunday John and I went to a craft fair and Monday I did nothing. It was odd to do nothing. Benjamin needed me a lot so I slowed down for him. All day long he was asking for "help". Help to do things that he normally does himself. He spent a lot of the day in my lap.
Today I got back into the store and played. I took Benjamin's painting project and added to it.
Also made a little mess.
I also sketched out George. I think I will paint him for Jason. (with his tie)
I loved the end product here that we decided to offer a Paint and Stamp for Toddler package.
I am loving my job. I feel like I am playing all the time. What could be better than playing with paint?!
