I have been contemplating that I need more work space. My second bedroom that I use for my studio seems to be shrinking each passing week. So, spending some time thinking on this situation, with one thought leading to another thought I had the great idea of making my living room my studio. I know I mentioned it in an earlier post and I have begun the slow transformation. Its going to take time because I need help moving the big stuff, paying for it with cash up front, and working full time. But thats ok. I am good with enjoying the journey these days:) But, I did get a start this weekend. I wanted a sitting area with the TV and my tunes in one area. This was my dining room. But it will do nicely if anyone happens to be over. The kitchen is right there, we can visit and if I want to work on things I can. Because I had to move things out of the dining room, I had to find a place for it, so I had to change my entry way. I tell you, its one thing leading to another and somehow I keep ending up with one extra piece of furniture. I actually put a chair outside my door with a "free" sign on it and it was gone in a matter of minutes. One problem solved! :) I will keep you posted on my progress. I am getting excited for it to all be done. How fun to be able to do it all in one large work area. I think my family thought I was a little crazy at first, but they seem to be getting the idea and think its going to be great.
OK,,, its almost September. I tell myself every year I will not wait to the last minute to do shopping... I end up waiting until the last minute! This year its a goal I am going to work very hard on. I also want to try and make it as much of a handmade holiday as I possibly can. So I have decided to be on the look out for Great Holiday Gifts and share them with you. The first person who came to mind was my friend Marie. (http://www.savonmarie.com/) And its not just because she is my friend. She has been making soap for alot of years and she has it perfected. I use her products and I love them. Her soap is awesome and it makes such a great gift at a wonderful price. Perfect for teachers, co-workers, or even hostess gifts for all the parties during the season. Her presentation is gorgeous as well. I cant wait to see what else I find to share here with you. Have a wonderful week.
