    Oops, tell your mother I'm sorry.

    My wife, umm, her phone number, umm, nope sorry...

    OK, she doesn't look that old either :)

    How's the baby liking the work you're doing? Does the daytime walking and rocking put him to sleep, and then keep him up at night?

    OMG, I just sat here and read all 106 posts!

    Congrats, Nic, on the move. Sounds like it will be worth the hassle.

    Now that you are moved in, the fun begins. Change is GOOD!

    Ok......so I also have a huge shelving unit.......from IKEA (shhhh you IKEA HATERS :p)

    Anyway.......found an awesome use for COROPLAST!! I love the stuff!
    Always thought it was way funky and kinda modern...;)
    So I used it as backing on my shelf!

    NOW......behind the shelf.....since I dont have a lot of space in my back room......is my fitting table! AND.......its already a MESS!!! ;)

    Just a friendly heads up ..................

    So, Nicole, does this mean that you are ready for that set of pastel chalks now? I wanted to give you time to get that move out of the way as I have moved my gallery into new digs no less than 3 times and it just doesn't get easier with practice!!

    Let me know, gal.

    About that wall; I had something like that in our old house; covered it with beadboard and white pickled it.
    Just an idea...it was cheap, fast and covered all spots.
