Long Days = Great Results

Even though our framer is still dragging his feet finishing up the outside details on the cottage, my husband and I have been hard at work on the inside. We've been wiring, plumbing, painting and constantly cleaning up from the general building process.

The past couple of days was dedicated to installing the kitchen cabinets. Measuring, leveling, and measuring again yielded great results. We have the majority of the cabinets installed and they look great in the space.

To celebrate, I couldn't wait to put a custom made set of porcelain dinnerware (compliments of muddy_fingers) in the new cabinets. I look forward to using them, but know it will be a while yet before that happens.With a big project such as this, it's amazing how fast the summer is flying by.

Haven't been able to send much time in the studio lately; all my attention has been focused on our building project. With deadlines looming, 12 to 14 hour days are not uncommon, but we are making headway. So many things to finish up before the blue board & plaster next week. It's funny to be spending so much time at the beach but not having a tan to show for it! Right now, I just keep reminding myself how nice it will be when we are finally able to sleep over. (Notice I didn't say "when we're finished".)

The bridge to the "crows nest" is underway and will be a great addition. Nothing like being able to just walk off the front porch to the dune!

Surprise Exposure

The Journal of the Print World recently published an article about the Printmakers' Network of Southern New England's upcoming Micro/Macro exhibition to be held at the Newport Museum. It's always a nice surprise to find your work mentioned in a publication; and much appreciated.
