My brain rambles, okay? The things I ponder sometimes would make anyone tilt their head in confusion like the RCA dog, but today it’s about texturing. Bear with me.
Okay, there’s this thing I think about every morning as I’m putting on my makeup before work. Particularly eyeliner.
“I hate cutting in.”
I don’t know if you’ve done a lot of room painting, but our whole house has been in some state of remodel over the years, and if your situation ends up anything like mine, your hubby gets to do the big satisfying rolling of the walls while you get to do the intricate part. The really annoying taking of a tiny brush and cutting in carefully next to the trim and the crown moulding. Which in itself would be fine, except our walls aren’t smooth. We have a heavy-stomped texture on the walls that makes cutting in with a straight line more like a liar taking a polygraph. It’s all over the place. Try making that look neat and straight!
So, what does that have to do with eyeliner?
Because that’s what I feel like I’m doing these days–trying to cut in a straight line on a surface that USED to be smooth, but now resembles a textured wall. I’m textured! With a heavy stomp! And making that line straight is getting harder and harder to pull off! And I hate cutting in!
Who feels my pain? 🙂
A little laugh for your morning, ladies! Have a good day and let your thoughts ramble!
