Before and After Pictures and Some of Sydney’s Creative work!
Once again I have been bad about posting, but I have been busy, and just haven’t taken pictures of what I am working on because it just isn’t that interesting or I haven’t installed it yet. Today we did install a room full of inverted box pleat valances and cornices. This process happened a lot like the post that I wrote last time. I met with the client and took measurements, and a picture so I could do a rendering on the window so she could see what it would look like. I also sent her a couple of samples of fabric to pick out her final choice.
I just did a couple of renderings, because we had decided on a basic style, but I sent her 2 choses, one which had smaller boxes.
And one with larger boxes, one for each window.
She liked the less busy look of the larger boxes, so that is what we went for! So here are the after pictures.
They really warmed the room up and brought height to the room.
For the door leading outside and over the Kitchen sink, she wanted cornices and I think they completed the look.
And over the sink!
Now on to Sydney. Sydney is my oldest and is very creative in a lot of ways. She loves to write and take photos, so I thought I would share some of what she has been doing this spring. This is a poem she wrote this week, and to give you an idea of how long it took her, she probably spent less then 1/2 hr on this. I also included some pictures she has been taking.
You couldn’t have come more soon –
For it’s been awhile,
Since I’ve seen your vibrant smile –
You welcome me,…
With a fragrant gift –
A sweet, warm breeze,
Sweeping through the budding leaves –
A soft caress,
Of whirling spring rain –
You make me laugh,
With your charming whispers –
Of the bright-bursts of blooming flowers,
You, my dear –
Have been missed –
For in your Presence,
I feel Him –
Draws most near,
His touch most intimate –
It erases all hopelessness,
In this tender moment –
Carries me through the Darkness,
He tells me –
He’s never left me,
Yet, he leaves a mark invisible to eyes of others,
A mark only I can see –
That reveals my true Beauty,
This I know:
I have been kissed by the Holy Spirit –
The God Almighty,
Loves even me –
In all my negativity,
In all my heart’s Misery –
He lifts me up,
On you dear June –
And sets me a’ flight,
On your bluest of skies!
And some of her other work.
So there is a little bit of Sydney’s art in writing and pictures. She can churn this out daily, if only she had an outlet for it!
Hope to be back soon. Thanks for stopping by!
