We have reached the end of another very hot summer week. I wish I had gotten more accomplished at the new studio, but it was so nice to have some time to sit back and relax with friends and family for the fourth. My friend Amy brought over these beautiful flowers for me from her garden! Aren’t they fantastic?! The super fun red sandals are an early BIRTHDAY treat to myself……oh and the glittery tank is as well! Yippee….the celebrating started early this year! Oh, and I literally lived off of bowls of freezing cold watermelon balls. They are so refreshing, and my new summer staple.

I hope to make a major dent in the studio work today! I spent 2 hours cleaning the bathroom on Tuesday! Seriously…I may have gone a bit mister clean on myself but the sparkly beautiful bathroom with its new rug, and towels is so inviting! Today, I will be sweeping, vacuuming, and sealing  the concrete floor and wall in the work space in order to help with dust, and to help keep the floors as clean and easily maintained as possible. i am going to work hard today so that I can enjoy MY BIRTHDAY tomorrow!! woot, woot! I am going to party like it is 2012! ……and for all of you who I know want to ask……the number is 38.

Have a great weekend!




P.S. did I mention it was my BIRTHDAY tomorrow?

    Wishing you a very Happy Birthday and much success, happiness and all around “goodness” with your new shop/studio. You have a fan and follower here in Texas root’in you on. Your space is awesome! Can’t wait to see it all Barb’ed-Up (kinda like what we refer to here as being Doll’ed Up, but with a Barb touch to it). Marian
