Thanks to Pamela and my mom, we got half of one of my clients homes finished. She loved everything. It was one of the biggest installs that I have done. Here are a few pictures.
Also did a house that is going to be featured in Phoenix Home and Garden. I hear that I get to be interviewed. Feels kinda like a grown up thing....
Also working on a house who's pool is going on the travel channel in a special for resort pools. Thiers is the only residential one that is going to be on the show. The rest are in actual resorts.
Work keeps going well, and I think it's time for a bigger workroom, more employees, and a new house. Keep your fingers crossed.

Last week, I'm in the thick of making drapes and valances for an entire house when I get a call from Dusty. "I got you a kitten." He says. Four weeks old. Someone had shot it's mother. Stray cats who lived under the cars at his work. I put on something cute... (white slip dress....) and go down to the shop to get this kitty. No one ever gave me a kity before... I get there and it was inside a box. I pick up the little GREY kitty and cuddle it. FIve minutes later the front of my dress is black from grease. Dusty says, "What did you expect? It's a mechanic." I take him home, give him a bath, (turns out he is orange) and feed him. Now he loves me. Sits on the sewing machine foot while I sew. Climbs in my bed and sleeps against my back. Also, he bites. I hope he grows out of that.

Work has got me all tied up. We did go gold panning with the kids last weekend up in Prescott Valley. We took beans and had a pretty fun time. No one got eaten by any bears. We did not find any gold though....
