Paint 'dat

Hello friends. My posts have been few and far in between as of late. It's not been for lack of material. I've been a busy little, ok, medium sized, bee.  I'm writing this post on the plane on my return flight.  Where have you been Well Worn?  I'm so glad you asked!  I'm returning from an awesome training in New Orleans with none other than Annie Sloan herself.




Isn't she cute all bare foot?
  So genuine and fun.
 What a FABULOUS time. I can't say enough about it. First off I just want to say that Annie Sloan is quite lovely as they say in her neck of the woods. Or as we say here in Well Worn lingo, she is the Bomb Diggity. It was great to meet her, speak with her, get to know her business and painting philosophy AND watch her in action as she painted.  It's fun for me to watch someone do something that they do well, and let's face it she is THE expert on Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (TM) http://www.anniesloan.com/ since she created it 20 years ago and has been using this wonderful medium in innovative as well as in practical applications all this time.  I admit it, I'm not easily impressed, but she is very impressive in a real and very humble way.

How fun to get this shot!

What a blast!  I can hardly wait to get home and get my hands on my Chalk Paint (TM).
I'll be sure to post some pictures of my projects as fast as I can get them done.
New Orleans was so fun, and they say "who dat" just like they do in the movie Water Boy.

I'm going to modify it a little bit and say "paint dat",

Yep, I'm a Lucky Girl!

So Close

On my way to get some training from the amazing Annie Sloan in person. How cool is that. Good times and painty hands ahead! It's a bad pic, but it says New Orleans and NO I have no idea who these people are.
