What's goin' on friends?  Are any of you newbies?  Today is Debbiedoos Newbie Party!!  I love Monday because of this party!  I've met so many amazing people!~!

I hope your weekend has been lovely!!  I see so many blogs talking about how Spring has sprung!!  Not really here in northern NJ.  We are having a cold spell, and there is talk of SNOW again!!  Tomorrow morning and Wednesday too.  gross.

So, as the title says, I have show and tell today!!  First, did everyone check out the moon last night?  It was called a super moon.  The moon was 33,000 miles closer to earth (give or take?) and she was BEAUTIFUL!! take a look.
I love the glow!!  Look how bright she is!!  You can see the cloud underneath.  Awesome!

 Continuing on with the "show" part of this post, my studio is coming along!!  It looks AWFUL in the pictures I'm about to show you, but believe it or not, it's close to ready!!
A picture of my unfinished closet.  It has shelves on a track system so I can move them when I like.  And, I opted for no door.  I'd rather have a curtain covering it.

This picture shows that my husband is a PIG when he works!  The cabinets that are there came with the house.  They were some awful greyish color.  Nothing a can of spray paint can't fix!!

Pardon the mess again. ugh.  But that stack of drawers is one of my favorite things.  They were in a dentists office that my husband renovated.  He asked if he could have them, and they said yes!!  Again, they were spray painted too, a few years ago when we got them.  I love how the top 2 are really shallow, so I can put small things in them and the rest are deep.  Talk about a money saver!!  And my countertop is awesome too, I think.

I will continue to update you with my studio status!!

On to tell.  A dear friend, CindyLew, who is a wonderful artist, and a wonderful friend gave me an award last week.  I thought that was so lovely!!  Then, the week went wonky, and I was so mental, I didn't know what day was what, and I forgot to publicly thank her!!!  Now, I don't usually like awards, not because I am ungrateful, but because I never know who to give them to!  SO, I'm not going to give it to anyone, because I would give it to ALL OF YOU NEWBIES!!!  I just want to thank Cindy for thinking of me!  You are AWESOME!!  Everyone check out her fabulous blog!

Have fun seeing all of the awesome blogs, and make a ton of friends!!  Remember, if you will be my new blog follower/friend, I promise to follow you back!!

  7. Hi Daniella (I have always liked that name, by the way!), I think we must have similar weather systems- we are expecting snow here as well. I really like your idea of not having a door on the closet and opting for a curtain instead. I wanted to compliment you on your artist talent...your work is beautiful! I really like the picture of the soldier and lady in your previous sings to the romantic in me. Thanks for stopping by my blog- I have added you as well- I just love finding great new blogs like yours!
