Last week I found out a little surprise.
I had to move the studio. The building had been sold and the new owners wanted the building empty when they took possession in 30 days. That’s reasonable. I just wasn’t expecting it. I decided lamenting this wasn’t going to help me out at all so I took action. I found a new place, signed and got keys. I put in the leftovers of our flooring project from the house over the industrial carpet and went to work moving.
Between me, my mom, my reluctant children and the rain I managed to get it all moved in a day. Luckily the new place is a block and a half from the old one. I really like the light in the new space. The rest of the building has a feel of “left behind in the 70’s” . I am on a little corner with a view of the roof. I like this though. I don’t see traffic, I see clouds.
Me and my old girl are settling in with the new space. I am just above Main St… yes we have a main street here 😉 I have already been giving the other shops a fair visit. More than I have been able to in the past. I am excited to be able to go to this space and create.
I am also able to spread out a little bit more. I found some industrial looking shelving and was able to buy the tables from the other space. I went so far as to organize the rolling caddy I have had for so many years now it seems to celebrate birthdays with my kids.
I am hoping to get a pad made for the storage bench to turn it into a functional window seat. Right now when people come to visit me all I have are the sewing stools. At least I am starting to add some of my favorite hipster friends and plants!
I had these removable animal decals before, I just had not decided where they were going to go. I now have sewing machines with names like Gerald and Bernard, and supply buckets that join in the mix. I felt the deer looked a bit like me and so is my entry mascot.
