Things are coming together

Just a little updating on the studio. Tonight I'll start putting things in the holders I have come up with so far, jars, wire baskets and more. I walked around the house looking for things that would help me organize and display things. When looking for things, you have to take a second look at things. Look at them in a different way. Most things can be used in other ways then the way they were intended for. Take another look at what you have.

On my way.........

It was a productive Tuesday. The vines and remnants of Pixie Hollow are gone. Tore down a metal shelf and moved it in. I got the work table in and white washed. More shelves will be moved in tomorrow. Then the hard task of going thru all the supplies I have and organizing them all. Now that will be an massive undertaking! Let me hear some feedback.

New studio? What was I thinking !!??

Ok here it is. I have moved my daughter to her new room. It was quite a project! The room had been my 18 year old son's room. Quotes on the walls, signatures, you know the look I was dealing with. Well, 2 days later and LOTS of Kilz paint, we were on on way to a little girl's big room. We still have a little touch up with the details, but she is in there and loving it.

Well now I am redoing her small old room as my new studio. There lies the problem. Maybe problem is the wrong word, it's more like a quandary. I am going to keep the blue color. I will paint over the flowers left over from my version of Pixie Hollow. I just keep looking at the empty space and I have SO many ideas I'm just not sure where to start. I do so many different arts and I love so many different styles. I have a pretty good idea which style I want, now it's just putting it all together. I know this will take quite some time. I don't have everything I need or want. I'll start with what I have and go from there.

This post and for the next few posts will be very cathartic for me. I don't have a close friend near me to help with all the decisions, so posting here and getting input and feedback from all of you will be very helpful. Well I'm off to get more done, keep up.

Fall is here

Well fall has really gotten me in the "nesting" mood. I just got back from California and have really been motivated. My creative juices are flowing. These are a few pumpkins I made today. They will be in my Etsy shop tomorrow.
