Well its been a very busy time since March.
Painted 6 Grandfather clocks for the La Grange outdoor art exhibit. Looking forward to the auction in September..
Received 12 x 9ft patio umbrellas for this years Goombay Bash @ Navy Pier on Aug 11th.
*My neighbor Britany Thornton has been a godsend this year..we have knocked everything out in record time.
I have one of last years rocking chairs to redo, but still patiently trying to get the sticky images OFF it, (which they would follow the rules). Planning on a tuscany/wine theme for this chair.
Ive been NON STOP and very much looking forward to my 1st mini vacation to ATL at the end of the month followed by a week off work....I think Ive earned it.
Stay tuned for more coming later.

PBS television project. She accurately interpreted the descriptive criteria for
the design, and her creative work surpassed - by far - all of the other entries.
A true Grand Slam.”

Jason.riederer left you a testimonial for contest "Logo for Higherdown - the TOMS Shoes of Jackets":
"Produced the winning design on day one! The Great Scot took my design brief and created this winning logo on her first try! And not only did she locate my "desired" font at the midnight hour, she made sure that I had the high definition files before my deadline with my manufacturer the next morning! (This was the day before Thanksgiving!) You truly
went above and beyond. Thank you! You have an amazing artistic ability and are phenomenal to work with!
