Archives for December 2018
The Colors of the Month for December are Marzipan and Boxwood! Marzipan is a rich cream (as the name suggests). We love to finish Marzipan with a light antiquing or maybe even a little white wax.
Boxwood is one of my favorite mmsmp colors. Marian named the color after boxwood plants that she likes to use in decorating her home.
Our hardened wax puck, December’s Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint Product of the Month, can be used to create a two color resist. We teach this technique in our MMSMP Milk Paint 101 class. It gives the piece a nice aged look. Here we used the wax puck on the carved details of this stool and then painted the whole piece in MMSMP typewriter. A little sanding and the gold shines through!
Here’s what the puck itself looks like…you can find at the store or online.
Hello! The annual Christmas in the Village Christmas Crawl is December 13th, 6-9 pm. There will be horse drawn wagon rides in the Village again and we are excited because WE WILL BE OPEN! I am hosting my friend Nikole from One Hope Wine and we are putting together a free wine tasting! The cool think about One Hope is that they will donate funds to a nonprofit if we choose to buy wine. So, if you like what you are tasting, you can buy a bottle or two in support of the Zionsville Education Foundation (my cause). I hope you will stop for a sip and enjoy!
A huge thank you to everyone who came for the Holiday Home tour on December 1st. We were thrilled to partner with the Zionsville Showchoir on their yearly fundraiser and this year was extra special because my mom’s house was on the tour. I hope to share everything we did at her house because it looked amazing, but the best part for me was seeing all the friends and family who came and hearing the amazing kids sing and play!
