Store Window

Since I promised to show you a picture of the completed store window, here it is!
It's a fairly simple design but I need to keep it that way so it doesn't get too expensive. I charge $40/hour to do this and usually get them done in 1 to 1.25 hours. I never charge more than $50 for a window even if my design choice takes me a little longer. After all, they just scrub it off at the end of the season :)

I kind of drag my rear up there to do it but once I get there and get started it's actually fun. So many people stop to comment and visit while I'm doing it and many tell me they look forward to each season's new display. Once a little boy hung around the whole time and chatted non-stop. It was cute. He even told me HE has drawn a lot and went on to tell me he drew a picture of boobies once! (He's about 7 years old) I said, 'oh my, did your mother like your drawing?' hehe
He said, 'oh I never showed her!' LOL

It's nice and sunny here today and we're due for some rain the rest of the week so I'm hoping to get my first lawn mowing in right after work. Parts are still brown, other parts are green and lush and will be horrible if left much longer. Strange how the same lawn comes back to life after winter in such different time frames!

Have a super week!
