Studio Progress

Hello, Hello,

I have been wanting to show you studio progress all week. I had to wait because of the timing of the Ornament Blog Hop. But now that we are back to regular blogging, I can show you what I have been up too.

Today I will show you my paint and boy there was lots of it. I have plans for more but I need to get in and get settled before I go doing anymore. In the past I learned if you paint a flower on the wall then it's not fun to put shelves in front of it later when you decide on a better lay out. I did the basics for now. We are all in the studio and working this week so we are learning the best layout. I have to admit we are pretty spoiled with the amount of room we have.

Okay...back to paint. I didn't want a lime green, a turquoise, or a yellow. Those are the colors of my house. The whole point of the studio is to separate my work from my personal life. Not like that's really going to happen but you know, you gotta try. Reds and oranges would be to crazy for me so I went with a purpley blue. A periwinkle, a delft, a larkspur...call it what you want. I have been loving purple lately but purple might be too much too. I love it during the day with all of my daylight. At night when it's just the flourescent lights, it a bit too lavender for me. But I shouldn't be there much at night anyway, hence the separating work and life from above.

Of course I couldn't just leave it at that. I had to paint some stripes.... These puppies are just up front where the store and bead area will eventually be. More on that later....

Here's the door from my office into the main studio. I love it!

Here's my office...it's a bit too circus looking for me right now. I think I am going to have to tone it down. The walls were blue and I couldn't handle it so I just started painting...hee hee I will deal with it later. Got to get a desk in there first.

Stop back tomorrow, I show you what's happened since painting and I will be announcing a big ol Holiday Sale you won't want to miss.

Have a great day,

  3. Thanks! I will have to keep you posted on an open house. I realized that if I wanted to maintain what little sanity I have left, I should not attempt and open house. Hopefully in a few months....
