Doors

 Hola! I have finally finished the first set of doors. You saw a photo of these a few years back when I started them. These doors and cupboards will go into the closet that will be in the bedroom. Below is a photo of what they looked like. I am still working on the tops and will finish those sometime in the future after Senor moves them to the closet which is also sometime in the future. He's going to need to cut the upper cupboards apart when he moves them. I don't know how that will work out so I decided to save them and finish them later after they are moved.
There is one more set just like this and I am slowly working on those.


 The inside of each door is a different color since I had a little extra paint. The paint is acrylic and most of it, with the exception of Pthalo Blue and Alizarin Crimson, I bought in town from the Comex Store. I distressed the borders using a candle and painted on a light Pthalo Blue wash. Then I used paste wax over the wash. I painted polycrylic over the backgrounds and the insides of the doors.
Just thought you might like to see what I'm up to.....

It's a holiday weekend, even though the Dia de La Revolucion is not until Thursday, our town is going to celebrate it on Monday. Most workers only worked a few hours this Saturday morning and will now have a 3 day weekend. Of course, they will still take Thursday off anyway because that is, after all, the real holiday.............................adios, Linda Lou

If you are going to call for Christmas cards this year, you better let us know how much postage to put on them.
I checked the US post office's web page and found out I cannot mail ammunition and pork products, but no where did it tell me how much postage to put on a card to Mexico. It was as bad as the IRS website.
Any way, Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year.

Thanks Yennifer! I love them!

Mr. Gill! YES YES YES! I will put out an official notice manana after I go see the mail lady and get the amount, providing she can tell me. I send loads of stuff north at around 40 pesos for registered mail. I should have thought to do this sooner, too, like in October, but we will give it a go! Thanks for the reminder! LL

Is the address the same?

Nothing sadder than to get a Christmas card returned in February for insufficient postage.

I know that the stamps without a price on them will not do the trick.
