Resolve

I can't believe how many definitions there are for resolve! Wow. Above is one of many projects that are in my head but haven't yet been realized. This is my recycled-door garden shed. I have its footprint measured, staked and cleared. I have the doors. I have shingles. I have the entire construction of this, step by step, in my head. But every year laziness and other summer doings weaken my resolve to actually build it. Heh.

The other day I was thumbing through a seed/plant catalog, and I began to picture new or better or changed things in my yard...vegetables (which I've never grown)...new flowers for the hummingbird garden.... And the shed! I resolve to build it this year. This is the year! The yellow halo represents the heavenly chorus that will sing when I finish it.

Head on over to Illustration Friday and see how others interpreted resolve.

OOH, I love it! I've got a similar idea that is always on the back burner. I want a little greenhouse made of all these old windows I've got. Good luck to you on that!

This is the coolest idea! A recycled door garden shed! How clever - and the illustration is absolutely charming. I love everything about this. Very well done!

I have those same thought in my head, but for an a studio instead. Love it. Build it in 2009. You can do it!

WOW! What a cool use of doors. I love doors, and recycled ones are even better. I'm truly envious of you and your garden plans. I hope you do get it all started this spring and then post pics of it. Great drawing of a fabulous shed! Good luck!
