Ok. So I should win a prize. I never told my wife I had ordered a GF. When it finally arrived at the office on Dec 26, my wife was upstairs feeding the babies (we take the twins to work with us). I put the box in my office under a table, and she never noticed it.
Last weekend, while she was at Costco, I brought it home and set it up in the loft, where we rarely go (until now).
This morning, while she was at Costco, after I fed the twins, I went upstairs to our loft to execute my first prints. I finished about 10 minutes before she returned.
Later, I was painting the letters on the little sign, and she asked if I had made it. I told her yes. Later, she saw the two script names of the twins, and I asked her what color she wanted them. She suggested pink and blue.
When I was halfway finished painting, she took over. She asked if I had ordered them. I told her i made them. “Solid wood?” she asked. "Did you cut them from a machine? " "Yeah, a .machine I ordered 2 years ago that they just delivered last week. " "Did you have to pay 2 years ago? " “Yep. They had about $30million in preorders in about 30 days. And this machine now costs a lot more.”
As she continued painting, she said “You know, we can make money from this.”
I love it when a plan comes together.
