Too Many Artists in the Bedroom

...you'd think it be like having too many cooks in the kitchen...
but it wasn't...
we started a few weeks ago when my friend Kim asked me to help her draw and then paint a peacock/filigree/swirly design on her bedroom wall....

on the same day Kim was also "hosting" a Rock Band morning for some wonderful college girls that work (worked...they are done for the summer and leaving us) in the church nursery!

and that's when we learned that dear sweet Alyssa is an artist...and knows how to draw peacocks...

BTW...Kim LOVES peacocks!

we grabbed the sidewalk chalk (Kim's idea to use the chalk since her walls were a dark red that pencil wouldn't show up on too well)...and it worked like a dream...when you make a mistake you just wipe it off with a wet towel...



sweet Alyssa 


I'm standing on an EXTREMELY high ladder in this picture (not sure why Kim cut the ladder out of the picture?) and I ALMOST fell to my death...
that is how much I love Kim...I would risk my life to paint her wall...
seriously...I almost died!
And I may or may not have screamed like a little little girl!!!



Kim...LOVIN' her new wall...

I had too many things to do today to stay and help finish painting...I was so bummed...this is what it looked like when I left...

and this is what it looked like a few hours ago...
I have no pictures of Becca painting or chalking on the wall...she helped a TON on this project...stayed all day and painted...

I will post before and after pictures when the peacock is finished...but I was just too excited to not blog about it tonight!
