I clicked to open it.
My aunt, Samantha, had spread the word about my painting in the department she works at in the hospital...and before I ever even knew it...BAM! More orders in one email than I EVER imagined. It was that email that sent me from being 22 behind the week before Thanksgiving to 43 behind!!
So I kept reading, jaw on the desk, eyes as big as dinner plates and not a thing going through my mind except, what have I gotten myself into?!? Can I really do this?? Then I saw these words on two orders, "likes camo." Are you serious!?!?! Man, these people have a whole lot more faith in me than I do myself. So, I'll admit, I put the camo ones off til the very end...because quite frankly, I was terrified! But, now they're done and personally, i think they turned out really great, considering the feelings I first had about doing them.
You can't tell very well in this picture, but I just could NOT bring myself to put ribbon on these. I mean, c'mon...it says "Russell's Man Cave"....I wouldn't have slept that night if I had put ribbon on something that said MAN CAVE!! Solution..twine. It's manly, yet functional for my purposes.
This one is for a little 1 year boy who "likes camo". I decided to make it a little different than the other...more like a little boy. I LOVE how it turned out!!
