Lucky for us that Els continues to busy herself with Shimmer Sheetz, Peel-Off's and Glitter for Elizabeth Craft Designs. Look at this . . .
And then I've been ooh'ing and ahh'ing over this from Els . . . all these years we've been using peel-offs and thought you had to use those special markers to color them. Els tells me via FB . . .
"Debbie, you can use any permanent marker or ink to change the color of the Peel Offs!"
That tells me that if I have Shimmer Sheetz in colors I don't want to use, I can easily change them to the color(s) I want at the moment! Way cool!

Her husband, Chuck, added it all started when he gave her a $25 gift certificate. I told him he was a very smart man! I'm sure we can ALL relate and have stories of our own.

Oh my! After the priming, sanding and texturing, one more primer coat and they will start painting in a couple of days. We finished all of the color selections right down to the wire for ordering. The cabinets are almost finished and will be delivered to the house next Tuesday or Wednesday because they're taking up the entire space at the workshop.
Here's today's pics of my studio to-be . . .

window line facing the street; we're thinking
that the desk and chair will go in the
corner or underneath the 3 windows.
