Weekend Update.

How was your weekend? Mine was nice. 

Thought I'd share a few photos from the past few days...

Thursday, I finished up a job for the SWEETEST client who just moved to Georgia, and had been following my blog for years. She told me she had written my name (being able to paint for her nursery) on her and her husbands "Pro" list for moving to Atlanta. How cool is that? It made me feel great!

This is the nursery:

Last week, I also added a monkey to a mural I did back in May... just needed one more monkey :)

Photobucket's being a real jerk, and won't size my photos for me... so my apologies if these turn out too big. Gotta find a new place to store photos. I know I complain about this all the time, but it's one of those things that's important... and it's making me mad that it's not working properly!

In other news, a couple of months ago, I got white overspray from spraypaint all over my black car... not good. It was just a fine dusting, but it needed to be removed, so Wednesday of last week, I took it to the car wash place to get it taken care of. Let's just say they spent a total of 5.5 hours cleaning it off, and it was way not cheap. Word from the (now) wise: don't ever get overspray on your car. I sat and watched Sons of Anarchy on my computer and drew during this whole process.

so bored. 

Saturday, we got a new bed! woo. a king size one - exciting stuff. We bought it from my friend's mattress shop, called the Smart Bear Sleep Center

The only problem now is that we of course need all-new bedding. I got plain white sheets, but we need pillows, bedskirt, duvet, etc. 

in other news, it was recently my sister in law's 30th birthday party...

thats my stepbrother, my sister in law, and moi. looking a little sweaty, but whatever. happy birthday lindsey :) 

that's about it for my eventful weekend. hope you guys have a great monday! i'm actually off to go get a massage for my aching back. i haven't gotten one all year, and as you can probably imagine, with all the furniture i'm always moving, and the active nature of my job, my back stays pretty sore. time to get some of these knots taken care of!


  1. Too bad about your car, guess you live and learn...Alison

    1. I know! Sucks. Never spraypaint near a car, yikes.

  2. What a compliment for your most recent client to list you as a "pro" in the move to Atlanta! And of course...that stencil is fabulous! Enjoy your massage....

  3. So sorry to hear about your car. I feel like every time I spray paint something, my car is in the direct line of the overspray. My car is white, and I guess I'm usually spray painting things white or gold, so I haven't noticed anything yet.

    Can I just say that you are rocking your long hair right now? I am loving it. Just thought you should know.

    Also, congrats on the king bed. Life changer.

    1. yep, that's probably why. i have done this about 100 times and never had to worry about it, but this time was no bueno.

      and thanks for the hair complement! i'm rather greasy and my hair is a little crazy in that picture, so glad you can appreciate!

      king bed is awesome - maybe the best part is that mika has his own spot now, so he doesn't sleep ON me. hah

  4. That might be my favorite nursery paint job ever, so glad that she got you to do it!

  5. I was honored to get to meet Kristen in person, she is truly a delight and we will certainly have to come up with more projects to have her return. I promise to send photos as soon as the room is complete. Thank you Kristen for your kindness and superb work, you did not disappoint.

  6. Super website with a great sha and amazing stories is ur web.. please keep doing what u do now.. thanks to you.
