We are Women.
We are artists.
We are The Traveling Door
One week from today is The Traveling Door sale and I have so much yet to do.
What is The Traveling Door you ask?
It is a group of five of my closest friends ...
you know, the ones you could call on in the middle of the night kind of friends.
The best part is they are all filled with boundless creativity.
How lucky am I?
We get together every Thursday for what we call Therapy Thursday.
Our hubs know to not schedule anything other than exotic trips on Thursdays.
Thursdays are our time.
Sometimes we get together and work on individual projects.
Sometimes it is a group project.
Sometimes it is just a vent and a tad bit of gossip.
For the record I don't think that the gossip part is strictly a female thing. :)
Twice a year we put on a sale to share with our friends and community neighbors our creative endeavors.
Because we don't have a permanent venue we painted an old door purple and decorated it in a crazy pop art fashion.
The door travels with us when we do our sales notifying the public of where we are.
Thus the name The Traveling Door.
Today I hit the one week mark and although panic is too strong of a word, anxious isn't quite strong enough.
Six days to prepare and so much yet to do.
This stupid red chest is kicking my creative butt.
More on that later.
Hopefully that will be tomorrow's post.
Today is Thursday so I will be getting together with my girls but I also hope to work on these babies.
There are two of them and they were a freebie gift from Dean and Annie. Thanks and a big shout out to the two of you.
The tables are structurally in great shape and they have good clean classic lines so I was uber excited to get them.
I was thinking of doing a beachy feel. Like a sandy white with words for a summer type feel which seems appropriate for a summer show but then I second guessed myself.
I'll do that on something else.
Sometimes that is a good thing.
Sometimes I wish I had gone with my first inclination.
I have painted them black for now.
I'm feeling a bit wild.
Animal print perhaps.
I hope you will check back tomorrow and see where these little pretties have taken me .
For now I need to push myself away from the computer and get to painting.
If you are in the area, the ladies and I would love to see you next Thursday.
If you have an extra few please stop by The Traveling Door blog by clicking here and check out some more of my decorative tassels. I have had way too much fun with those.
