Still moving


I'm still moving, slowly but surely. Dave threw his back out the day of my last post, so it's mainly been me with a few helpers moving everything. Here's my new light and bright studio before I started piling it with boxes.


After I'd been schlepping stuff for a week, a friend brought me a giant bag of chocolate chips to help get me through! I ripped into them that night and have been snacking on them daily.

 
The next photos aren't pretty, but they show what the studio looks like now.





Gotta take a little break with the newspaper and those chocolate chips. It's been sunny most of the past two weeks, which makes the moving more pleasurable. Still, I can't wait to get done and settled in. I can't believe how much STUFF we have, even though I'm not a big shopper ... artwork and projects from 20 years ago when the kids were little, my journals going back to my 20s, fabric that I bought new but it would be considered vintage now. I've make three major hauls to Goodwill, but still there is more. I'll keep you posted as I progress.


Have a colorful day!

So sorry to hear about Dave's back, and I hope he is recovering. I love your new studio space... so big and bright! I just know you will get a lot of enjoyment out of it once you are in and unpacked... enjoy the sunshine, but beware of those evil chocolate chips! You know you can't eat just one... handful! ;-)

Love the light in your studio. What a joy it will be when it is set up. Having moved my studio twice, I know what you are facing. I've been in this one for 14 years and am still sorting and clearing! LOL
