A while back, I painted the Belcher children to line my stairway:
It’s been on my to-do list forever to paint the parents to hang on the other side of the stairs. Linda Belcher has been in progress for months now. With summer here and the grass growing, I haven’t had time to finish it.
But it was raining this weekend, so I was stuck inside instead of laboring outside in the overgrown jungle that is my yard.
She’s almost done. I need to do some touch ups, paint the sides so it’s not bare wood and put a sealant on it. Somehow I manage to paint even on the messiest table ever.
Even though my crafty time has been lacking the last few months, my yard is starting to come together. Last weekend I finished the front tiers that are in my front yard. It took me several weekends but I ripped out all the weeds and filled with rubber mulch. Under the mulch are layers of tarps because I don’t want anything to grow down there…. ever. It’s such a paint taking care of a yard on a hill.
There’s still so much to do. The top tier needs some work. It has a large fountain, grass, and several trees. I haven’t decided yet what I’m doing there. I don’t even want to think about the staircase that runs down the other side of the front hill or the backyard.
