Home is in your heart:
This is the mantra I'm trying to hold in my head at the moment. We're trying to get the bids in for just the painting as we can't really move back into our house until it's done. We got frustrated when we learned on Friday that the insurance adjuster had taken the day off and we'd have to wait until today, Tuesday, to get approval to get just the bids for the painting in AND we know the adjuster won't be in again tomorrow because of a funeral. Big sigh.
We also know it will be quite some time until the kitchen cupboards will be built and the new flooring for back entrance, stairs and basement installed.
Patience Wendy (:

On the really positive side is the fact that the cleaning crew is pretty much finished in the house AND my studio does not need painting or other work. So I can be back over there and get back to creating. I actually did some contact paper transfers on the weekend. One turned out quite beautifully. I also found some wood at the farm I will be able to use for painting on and an old box, bottomless, which I love. Greg will be so kind as to put a bottom on for me (:

At the top is one of Jessie Marion King's images with a whole lot of paint chips on it. I'll try to show you the colours we chose in next couple of days.

I must be away. I'll try to have more for you on Thursday, back to Saskatoon tomorrow.

angels be with you

Dear Wendy,
I am so sorry that the insurance agent is making you wait. We had similar disappointing work from our insurance agent when he was estimating her damage of her car. At first they said that the car was worth an amount, he had to come back three times and finally the damages were above $18,000, which should have meant that the car was totaled. However, due to pretty shabby work on the insurance company's part, her daughter was instead repaired. She had to wait over a month for her car, we rented one for me to drive and she drove mine. The insurance company did not pay for the rental, although they took their sweet time to get back to the autobody shop.

I am glad that your art studio is okay. Such a terrible thing Wendy, I am so sorry.

Blessings, Karen
