I wanted to share a little more of what I've been working on. I am just feeling my way around, so I don't have early progress shots. In fact I will work on something, glue it, then realize I shouldn't have glued it yet, pull it apart and do what else I need to do. This is all a learning process, but it's so much fun. :)

I must say, I was very overwhelmed by the large empty space that is to be the kitchen. So it's taken me a long time to get motivated, but I knew that if I could just start, I'd be ok. I began by looking at reference photos of real kitchens. But even that was overwhelming! There are so many beautiful ones in so many different styles and colors -- so much to choose from. Oh boy. So while I'm not completely sure how all my rooms are going to flow together, I'm having fun and just creating. I figure this is my "learning house."
On a slightly different note, I want to share with you the generous and thoughtful gift a fellow watercolorist blogger/friend sent me yesterday. How sweet is this!? The book is full of beautiful photos and I'm so excited. Thank you, Carrie Waller!
