Go Duke!!

February 6, 2011

Okay, I will be the first to admit I don’t know ANYTHING about sports…so ya’ll don’t hate if you’re not a fan. Thank you to Katie for asking me to do this for her darling boy Forrest, I’m sure Papa is proud. It turned out really well, considering I had about 7 heart attacks when applying the varnish, it decided to react with my blue paint (UGGGGHHHHH) talk about scared when I saw the first smear on that devil, all those hours of detail. Feeling like I had a steel band strapped around my chest, I went into overdrive, somehow God was with me because I was able to salvage it with no noticeable damage.  Excuse the photography, I had terrible lighting and barely remembered to take a picture before she walked out the door!  To say my poor brain was taxed was an understatement!!  Whew, I did not completely relax until after a bubble bath and a glass of wine 🙂

    YAY! I referred you to her when I first found out Forrest was getting a helmet, so happy it worked out for you both, it looks great!
