The good news is that my small mosaic business is going from strength to strength - the bad news is that my lovely studio is getting a bit small ...
I would be so sad to move from here - it is just off the kitchen (main hub of the house) so when I am working I feel part of things but can get on, and the children can come and see me anytime - I can generally stop what I am doing, if needed!
The view from my work table is lovely - to the front of our house, so I see people walking past, friends pop in when they see me snipping away, watch the birds on the bird table, appreciate the flowers in the front bed, the tree we planted for our dearly departed dog, and so on...
All my music is set up in here, the computer, the phone, my thinking chair... - so as you can see, I really didn't want to move!
I set my husband to have a think - he is fab at DIY, thank goodness, and likes a project. He decided more shelves were the answer, so everything has a place, a bit out of the way. Now, unlike most artists, I can't work in a mess, so I liked this idea and this is what he built me over the weekend, and I couldn't be happier!
I can stay put - whoop whoop!
|Before! Holes filled in, wall sanded and ready for a lick of paint, before the shelves go up.|
|Ta dah - my lovely shelves!|
|After! A place for everything!|
Let me also tell you about my Facebook September studio sale - lots of lovely mosaics at great prices for you to have a browse through - I will be adding more during the week so keep a look out and see if something catches your eye, esp with Christmas coming up! Click here for more -
Hope this finds you all well,
