Ok...So the photos in this post are more of an eye-sore than eye candy, but I wanted to show you why I've been a little MIA lately....
It's been work work work for the past two months and it I'm still not ready for the three shows I have coming up in least than two weeks! I did clean my studio, believe it or not, but once I get working, it turns disaster zone in no time.
I have sooo many New Year's resolutions regarding my little business. The first one is...redo my entire studio! I'm so incredibly excited about this. Once the holidays are over (but don't get me wrong...I plan to enjoy them fully and don't want them to whiz right by) and January hits, I'm pulling the entire contents of my studio out (where am I going to put it you ask? we'll cross that bridge when we get there...lol) and repainting the walls...I'm thinking either a light sky blue/turquoise or just a cream and add the color with the furniture...what do you think I should do? Then I'm going on Craigslist and Ben is going to cart me around in his work van to pick up unwanted bookcases and shelves all over Boston. I'll paint them to match the room...but I need the walls of this tiny room to be covered in shelving.
Then I'm going to organize all of my supplies and goodies and put about half back in the studio. The other half will be put in storage (for when I move into my big beautiful house a couple of years down the road) or sold (keep an eye out in my vintage Etsy store for goodie packs, supplies and vintage treasures in January and February.
I can't wait for it to be done and I'll be so much more organized and it will speed up the creative process too (I don't know how many wasted 10's of minutes were spent looking for something I was holding five seconds ago!).
Another resolution I'm looking forward to working on next year is changing the way I create and offer my goodies (it will be much better, trust me). And this includes an easy-squeezy wholesale catalog for you retailers out there! I'll write more about it later.
This is after I cleaned up believe it or not.
Yup...that chair is where I sit and work...I don't even use a garbage...I just let the bits and scraps fall where they may.
My crepe paper collection always proves to be in fairly good order! :)
I'll be posting photos of my studio transformation when it happens! Stay tuned!
