I'm Getting Paid!

I'm back!  A week long vacation with the fam was exactly what I needed.  We biked, we hiked, we beached, we hung out with farm animals, we boated, we shopped, we ate and we wrapped up the week with a drive-in movie...SO FUN!  But now it is time to get back to work on all the projects I left hanging and the first one to talk about is one I am getting paid to do. betcha!

Can you believe it, someone is actually paying me to do this stuff!  One of my Personal Training clients is also an MD reader.  And after seeing the two headboards I made (here and here) she asked if I would be interested in making a couple for her.  And I said No.  Ha, just kidding, I said Heck Yeah!  (I'm so professional).

So Barbara (that's my client) and I have been putting our heads together and we have come up with a plan.  I must say she has been so fun to work with.  In addition to being a friend, she actually thinks my ideas are great, imagine that!  In her very own words "I welcome your ideas.  I'm sick of my own."

My work includes an upholstered headboard for her master bedroom.  I'm not going to give away all the details but I will tell you I used one of these fabulous shapes...

and there is a chance this fabric is involved

And as I said above, Barbara loved the re-purposed headboard I made for my master so her new guest room headboard will be very similar with a few new features of course.

So as soon as I complete these two projects I will officially be a professional.  Ha!  That is funny.  I am so not a professional, but it is nice to have someone appreciate what I love to do.
