EEEK! I made it happen!





This is my studio! I know! Exciting huh!

This is why I disappeared for a while, between finding a studio, considering it, wishing it, hoping it, doing it, packing, moving, unpacking, sorting, labelling and breathing, I haven't had the time, inclination or a reliable internet connection to keep you updated. Mind you that's probably a good thing. Moving is hard, and you probably didn't want to live through it vicariously anyway.
I'm all set up now, and it's so quietly creative and industrious it makes me just go into my own little world and not come out for hours. Also in the warehouse space are artists, painters and glass sculpturers (is that a word?). It is quiet and inspiring, and without tv/ laundry/ cats etc. there are no distractions at all. Lovely.
I've always wanted a studio. So I got one. I'm a grown-up, so I can. I can do whatever I like, I just have to make it happen. Sometimes it's nice to remember that, and act accordingly. I hope you do too.

(ps. Still no internet connected, so bear with me and posts will be flowing soon!)

Oh, Pepper! It looks fantastic! Creativity and quirkiness mixed with order and neatness - bravo you. I would love to have a room of my own for creating instead of using the kitchen table while the childen are sleeping and then having to pack it all away. Enjoy it! J x

Congratulations! How exciting indeed! Looks like a great space to be creative in. I dream of having a studio for my jewellery one day too. I love all your boxes and books and goodies. Enjoy!

Far out - go you! Carpe diem and then some, I'd say.

Amelia said...

oh my - such gorgeousness. I am envious! Wish I had a lovely studio, right now it's my whole house.

Love your 'about me' - I too have ideas coming out of my ears and I try and share loads of them on my experimental art e-course as I need an outlet! As well as trying to do most of them myself and getting overwhelmed!

LOVE your studio space! Shauna told me about your fabulous products so I thought I'd jump into the blogosphere to take a look - LOVE your stuff! And have mentioned your cushion in a Baby Space post that will be up tomorrow at 6:30am.
...and did I mention I love your stuff?
