I'm struggling . . .

This is for you Rachel! Here is the sneaky peeky - actually the widow's peaky! Unfortunately, it's no where near completion and I don't know if it ever will be. I'm having some technical issues with this one. I see it in my head - but I can't get it "right" on this canvas! But what you see is looking cool - or so I think! Since I don't know if you will see this one completed, I'll just tell you it is suppose to be a silhouette of a haunted house. We will see how it turns out . . . I just don't know about this one!On to more stuff . . . I always get asked the difference between the "gold" and the "taupe" background colors in the classic collection. Well, I finally have the same letter in each . . .

Let me tell you that when I first took the picture {with NO flash} I could barely tell the difference. But with the flash on you can see. The gold one has gold accenting the chocolate swirls behind the "R" while the taupe one has a mix of gold and silver accenting the chocolate brown swirls.

I also finished a sage green "C" - if I only had a red one, you could see all the background choices! Sorry - no such luck!! I noticed that I didn't have any "R"'s on the site - I guess that is next on the my list for today {you know, add the "R"'s on the site!}

Well, I'm off to work on the haunted house a little longer - after I add the "R"'s to the site! It's going to be a long weekend because this house has officially put me 2 days {so far} behind schedule! And I'm determined to stay ahead.

Looks like you're busy. Sorry to hear about your fish. Logan has had a Betta, Macaroni, for almost 4 years now. The fish was floating upside down and not moving at all. I was thrilled. Who wants a fish that can't play nice with others? I was ready to move on to a tank & fish where more than one could get along. Well my crazy mom told Logan to put Sprite in the tank. He did and that fish has been fine ever since. Crazy mom/nanna! Stupid Coke products!

I can totally picture the spooky broken railing of an old widows walk on the roof of a haunted house... so I would say you are doing FAB U LOUS!

Wow! I LOVE what I see so far on the haunted house. I'm SURE you will bang it out, you are brilliant that way! My friend Julie LOVED her "B" in the classic collection, and it is highly esteemed in her home among their bookcase in the great room! Thanks!
