I wrote about getting my studio in order in January as my 2010 goal and I'm done! Good thing I have more goals...there is a whole lot of year left.
This is peeking through the door. This desk is where all sewing, painting, woodburning and pretty much everything happens for my websites and art. Well, except the messy stuff which happens in the garage other studio. "Why yes, I have two studios..." is a sentence that must be read with a pretentious faux Harvard accent because I feel like an ass when I talk about this.
Do I need two spaces? Well, um, yes? Woodcutting can not be done inside it is so unbelievably messy. Ceramics is filthy also. So I've got two places to art out in. However, I'm also fully aware that this is a temporary arrangement. The kids sleep in our room now but soon we will need this space for them and I'll get kicked out, banished to the garage. So for now I'm going to enjoy the luxury.
Shhhhhh, don't wake the unfinished wee houses on the desk. Yep, wooden ones. Made recently. They will someday make their way into my still slumbering Etsy shop...they are just waiting for some ceramic friends to escort them.
You can also see what the room looked like when we bought our house and read my master vision for the space. How did I do? I decided to skip a rug, too annoying to clean. There is also a serious lack of art on the walls but that will have to wait due to my Paypal balance being at zero for the last year. Let me tell you, the first thing I will do once I make some Etsy coin is to spend it on other Etsy artists. Ever hear that joke that nobody actually makes any money on Etsy because we're just shuffling around the same $50 back and forth? It's funny 'cause it's true.
Who are your favorite Etsy artists (especially art for the walls) right now? I want to do some window shopping!
