I'm Back... Kind Of.

Well, as you probably already know, I haven't been online much this past week due to the move to my new studio. First there was painting (walls and ceiling, then trim and doors), then furniture assembly (enormous new desk and three large workbenches), and finally the endless work of moving, moving, and moving some more. I can't say that I'm totally settled in and organized yet, but I'm getting close. The studio walls look a little stark; I definitely need some artwork or something in here at some point, but for now I'm enjoying the beautiful purple paint and the gorgeous sight of more-than-adequate workbench and desk space!

I'll post more pictures when I get further settled in and organized, but I couldn't wait to at least show you something.

Oh, and even though I might not be feeling 100% settled, it seems that Hazel and Otis are feeling quite relaxed and comfortable on their new studio dog beds...



I can't tell you how fortunate I feel to have all this - I feel like I went from totally inadequate/cramped/disorganized work space to the most amazing space I could ever dream of. I'm grateful to all of you who have helped me grow my business, and to my awesome hubby for all the time he put in on this project.

I'll be out of town this Sunday through Tuesday (headed to Animal Place to adopt four hens and a rooster!) so I won't be able to dive into the long list of custom orders I have waiting for me for a while still... although I'm itching to create. Soon enough...

(PS - if you're interested, check out my Flickr photos to see notes about specific elements of the studio shots.)
