About Time.....

<--------Stargazer Blue............

This afternoon at about 2PM I finally woke up with my sleep hangover. You know, the hung-over feeling you get when you have slept way too much.
I was dehydrated, so I got up, took a shower, ate a bit of fresh mozzarella cheese, and drank til my hearts content. Milk, sugar free soda, fake coffee & water. And I feel so much better. I should after three solid days of sleeping tho.

I thought while I'm sitting here still too shaky to do more than just sit for a while, I would try out my new watercolor paper and brushes. I've tried charcoals, pastels, and oils, and now I want to try out watercolors.
Now, I have watercolor pencils....somewhere. I have worn myself out looking for them tho and they seem to have just vanished into thin air. I saw them the other day....somewhere. There's that damn word I hate so much.

Anytime I go to my moms to borrow something the response I always get is" Sure- you can borrow it if you can find's here.....SOMEWHERE."
OMG, how I detest that phrase!

Before my illness got to me, I did get the wall behind the sink in the kitchen painted. I painted it a really pretty sort of french blue..... the actual color is Stargazer Blue by Valspar.
The kitchen was/is yellow with a really cutesy teacup border around the top near the ceiling. The blue really sets off the white cabinets. I'm torn between doing ALL the kitchen in the blue or just doing the wall behind the sink and stove as accent walls.
I would post a picture, but since I've been sick the sink is piled high with dishes and I'm not quite up to doing them yet, so the web-pic from Valspar will have to do.
Don't go suggesting Paul do them either because he has volunteered but I am sort of OCD about my dishes and I've graciously refused his help with them. My problem, entirely.

Anyway.............hopefully I can find the pencils soon. It would really help pass the time.

I'm kind of a fan of accent walls... i'm a bit skeptical of blue and yellow together though.

Blue and yellow is a great color combination- altho I think it is a bit more feminine in nature.

Guys wouldnt usually think to use it, imho.
