function as one with Clothes4Souls

Remember the online clothing company that I painted the table cover for? 
You know… We did the Tomato Arts Festival together?

Well, now function as one is partnering with Soles4Souls new clothing charity, Clothes4Souls.

Check out Soles4Souls blog about the great new charitable deal.

For every shirt that is purchased, one article of clothing will be provided to a child in need!

Working in the closet

With the recent addition of a second child, we decided that while the kids are little they can share a room. This gave us the third bedroom to use as an office and playroom. So far it’s been a wonderful idea and I love being able to work on bills or email while the kids play in the same room. The one casualty, however, was a space for Mommy to paint. I have everything put away, scattered between the garage shelving and office closet shelving. I didn’t know that I would be needing any of it this week!

My new (well, temporary) closet studio – complete with TV tray for supplies, folding stool for brushes and cutting mat for my feet. Not sure why I chose the x-acto mat to stand on, maybe just because I ran out of drop cloth? I can’t remember because my brain has been a bit foggy for a few days! Just ask Pam (founder/owner/designer extraordinaire of function as one)… our conversations have been filled with, “what’s that word? ummmm…” I’ve been out of my normal routine trying to get some things going for this show. The good news is, she’s got great product to showcase for our Booth #101.

Working on function as one table cover for Saturday’s Tomato Art Festival.

Wow, I can honestly say it’s like riding a bike. I haven’t had a project like this in quite a while and I’m really enjoying myself! I hope it looks great on the table… 100% cotton duck, pre-laundered to give it that “natural, earthy look.” The paint will look distressed too, as if I had stamped it on. I think it will go well with the organic cotton and recycled material Ts that function as one will have in the booth!
