    I keep a pack of disposable gloves on hand at all times! And, I've got visqueen that's been used time and again to protect floors, etc. that I don't want to get messed up.

    I'm a big believer in prevention from damage or just my natural clumsiness at times. :-) Being a single female who grew up in a houseful of men I don't hesitate to pick up a paint brush, palm sander, spray can, you name it, to do projects I want done but can't afford to pay someone to do for me.

    Right now I'm repainting the wooden glider I restored two summers ago. It's a 2 seater and is just such a lovely place to drink my early morning coffee in the warm weather. And, I'm spray painting some old milk crates to use as sort of false wall on the side of my patio exposed to my neighbors. Thank goodness for masks, too. The toluene just gives me the worst headaches so I wear a double mask and keep a tissue with lavender essential oil on it inside the mask.

    Peace.

    Creativity is intelligence having fun.
