Friday was a little cray-cray.

I had barely enough time to eat – let alone to blog.

But I am here now ready to share!


Last night was the big night with my Homebird Upholstery exhibit at the Oceanside Museum of Art’s Art After Dark event.

It. Was. Simply. Wonderful.

The entire art party was very well attended. I could not believe how many people wore Steampunk attire, especially [it’s confession time] since I had no clue what this sub-genre of science fiction was until we selected this theme. I received multiple, very kind compliments about my work and, well, for my Steam-POP! costume. And man, with the overflow of love and support I felt from D, my family [back home], and my friends, I am completely overwhelmed with emotions right now [something like exuberant happiness with a side of exhaustion]. I went through soooooo many business cards. I can’t wait to see what clients/opportunities come from this amazing experience.

“True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I think I’m going to take next week off from upholstering to get the house back in order and maybe do some D.I.J.’s while I’m at it 😉 MUCHO THANKS to the Oceanside Museum of Art, Tracy Black, and Mitzi Summers for giving me a chance to display my artsy-fartsy-ness. It meant the world to this furniture girl!
