Summer is simply flying by. I hope you have all been enjoying it and making the most of it! For today’s post, I wanted to give you all a very quick update on where I’m at with the art studio and a brief idea of what’s to come.
For the past several weeks, I have been working on my new art studio space. For those of you who may be new or don’t know what I’m talking about, I have moved my studio from a small bedroom in my home to the basement/ lower level of my house. The pros: 3xs the space, more permanent in the long haul, opens up an extra guest bedroom in our house, more square footage to claim for my business taxes, and overall, a more free and dedicated work environment. The cons: colder and drearier space initially, unfinished – needs flooring, ceiling, AND drywall, tons of extra effort that takes away from time to make art and create. In the case of moving my studio, the pros much outweighed the cons, at least in the long run. I’ve just needed to be able to put up with the shape it was in when I got started with all of the renovations.
Thankfully, with all of the effort that I’ve been putting in, I’m now at a place where my studio is functioning like normal again! Most of the walls are up and painted and it seems like its slowly all coming together. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nowhere near “complete,” but it IS at a place where I’m comfortably able to work in it and get my ass in gear again! It’s seemed like one excuse after another for not creating new art and now that I’ve got a brighter, more artistically supportive space, I feel I can finally start tackling some projects I’ve been neglecting.
Whenever I come down to the studio now, I always feel a surplus of inspiration and creativity flowing into me. It is my hope that I will be able to share a video this week (or possibly next week) showing you all the progress I’ve been making. I’m somewhat nervous because it’s still not where I want it to be, but you guys have been waiting long enough for an update.
I’m also going to be holding a summer sale in my shop to celebrate my current studio success! Sale will start next week so be sure to subscribe to my mailing list and follow my stories on Instagram for updates!
Thank you all for your patience and kind words while going throughout this transition. You all mean the world to me.
