Progress made in a crazy world

Posted by Mary |

I know I haven't been posting much lately, so here's a little look at why I've been so busy:

Sept. 24-26
Tundra Caravan workshop with Aziza; hafla Saturday night
Sept. 27
Chena Hot Springs with Aziza (never pass up a chance to lounge around a hot springs rock lake with an amazing bellydancer)
Sept. 28-29
Rehearsals for Fleur du Mal burlesque show
Sept. 30-Oct. 1
Sold-out performances for Fleur du Mal at the Point After. We had to take out all the tables and we still turned people away at the door!!!
Oct. 2
Photo shoot for new Tundra Caravan troupe photos.

On top of all that, I was sick the week leading up to the workshop, and we've still been working on the cabin. The drywall is all up, mudded and taped. We started painting this week and have a first coat on everything except the ceiling. Tom now admits that all of my color choices were great, but he still won't agree to my fabric choice for curtains.

Is this fabulous or what? He says it's too dark and brown. Pshaw.

For a color update, here's what we've got so far:

Arctic entry inside and out is Sonata, a light blue. Sonata also graces the triangle of wall above the kitchen.

Downstairs is Day Spa, which is supposed to be a very light blue. It's pretty much just white. Boo!!

The bedroom is Mystic River. From my experience growing up near the Mystic river, this should be a muddy brown. But it's a lavender/purple.

The bedroom ceiling will be Enlightenment, a creamy pale yellow. The other ceilings will be plain white.

The loft bed, ladder, arctic entry door and anything else I can think of will be Plum Raisin, a dark reddish brown.

You know what would be even better than these descriptions? Pictures. Which I will get done and up here ASAP.
