No actual work done these last few days – but I have re-organized my studio space. On Saturday evening I was having a little moan about my work space and how it wasn’t working right (for that read – how I wasn’t working right!) When my partner and his sister took me in hand – before you could say mixed media – we cleared up the little room – found all my fabrics and put them on one shelf – and re-organized the work stations in the big room. I spent Sunday and Monday going through everything.
One of the reasons that we bought this house was the big old shed/chalet at the bottom of the garden that would make an ideal studio space for me. My partner re-furbished it as soon as we moved into the house – and it was a wonderful big light space. I moved all my stuff in very quickly to get it out of his work space – and really gave no proper thought as to what I wanted where.
As I was “homeless” for over 6 months – between selling my last house and finding this house – My work stuff was spread all over – some in store and some traveled with me. But I only got my large “messy” table back a couple of months ago.
Lots of my “bits and pieces” are still in boxes labeled “Studio nature” and “Studio sentimental” and “Studio inspiration”
The village craft fair is in a couple of weeks – I have no excuse now not to be working flat out. I have also had a request from a gallery for jewellery for their Christmas Exhibition – just when I had decided to wind down the jewellery! I am considering starting an Etsy shop only for my textile jewellery – but I really have no idea how successful they are – especially here in the UK. I am not particularly good at self promotion.
