The shed is done, now on to the next project.

Well, today I finally cleaned out that shed. I opened the door and threw things out onto the lawn, swept it out and put back only what I knew I wanted to keep. And, I organized everything. I disturbed a mouse nest, but I didn't come across any snakes. I did get stung by a wasp, though. There's a small area where the wasp nest is that still needs to be done, but I'll wait until I get some of that spray that kills them from 25 feet. Tomorrow it's off to the Re-Store and the dump! Whew. I'm glad to have that done.

My next project is going to be painting a table. It's a really cheap table that looks like it could have been some kid's high school shop project. The edges are rough and the finish is terrible. I think it will look good painted a solid color, and I might do some designs on it. I really like the folk art furniture that you can find in the southwest, and maybe I'll try something like that. I'll take pictures and show you.

I haven't been making much jewelry lately. I've been teaching a class on Monday nights and I've made a few demo projects. I'll get back to that soon, but I want to do things that can be done outside now that summer is here.
