New profession?

Good morning all. Had a post in mind today but a early evening phone call changed my outlook today. I was gonna tell you all my winter woes and basically whine about how I hate winter, instead I will tell you what happened.

I was just sitting down to dinner with the family when my phone rang. Usually I would not answer but for some reason I did. It was an unfamiliar voice and I was almost sorry I answered, trying to instill some values on my kids here. But I digress.....

It seems someone from the home tour last week was impressed with my decorating abilities and told someone else which led them to tracking me down through the gal that organized the home tour. You still with me on that? Anyway, this gal wanted to know if I was interested in decorating some businesses and a home for $$$$MONEY!

Now I don't know about you but some extra cash around here is always welcome, I do have that horse in training and it is Christmas time. So without to many other details other than where to start I agreed to do it TODAY! Yes, I had my day all planned out , but duty calls and since the kids get out of school at 10:45 I must work quickly.

So much for my lesson this morning, sigh...... will have to try for tomorrow.
Hang in there Frankie, mom is coming to see you soon!

Off to put on my elves suit and ears!
Happy trails....

Thats awesome!!! I hope they pay you well and you have lots of fun! Yay for extra money! Buy your pony some stud muffin treats (or other pricey goodies) to buy those guilty feelings away!

I love your fireplace/mantle! I am sure it is always a conversation piece. :)
