Happy New Year
After a couple of lackluster craft shows in November and December I had to step back over the Christmas holiday and recharge. This year will be more about exploring my creativity and doing what I want to do rather than what I think I can sell. There are always ideas rolling around in my head, little time to develop them and I am working on a strategy to allow myself to devote more uninterrupted time in my studio.
Which, by the way, is a New and Improved Studio – complete with an overhead storage shelf, additional lighting, rearranged workspace for a lot more room, and a huge central work surface that Mr. Handyman made for me to accommodate my brand-new silk stretcher frame and plenty of room to lay out fabric, patterns, and paints and for general craftiness. It’s a much more efficient area and I’m so excited to not have to rummage around for a half hour finding all my supplies before I can even get started on anything! He’s been so supportive and so ready and able to jump in and construct exactly what I need. I don’t know what I’d do without him. I do know. It would be nothing. Because I’d be too busy moving piles of stuff from one place to another to ever get anything done! Organization – not my strong suit. That could be a New Year’s resolution of mine – stay better organized. yeah, right.
In any case, I’m so happy to have a great space now and I’ve got lots to work on.
