studio update!

I really ought to write in here more often, so my entries resemble blog posts and not Robert Jordan novels.

Studio Update! Okay, so I left off last time with the news that I was moving studios….. which has completely changed! I was having huge issues with the owners of the new space I had signed a lease on- they were uncommunicative, hard to get hold of, and I hadn’t been able to get my keys to move in. and when I did finally get ahold of them, problems upon problems with the space, and their incompetence. Seriously, these folks have no idea how to manage a building. Luckily, I was able to get out of my lease and get my deposit back, which left me at square one. Even more luckily, after talking with the new owners of my current building, they’ve changed their plans regarding the hallway- it’s still going in, but it’s only going to effect about a third of my space- and I have the option to stay where I am, or to move into another studio in the building! Maybe one with a sink! And, they’ve decided on a rate per square foot that is well within my budget. The hallway isn’t going in until mid-May, so I even have some breathing room now! Everything worked out amazingly in the end, but I wish it hadn’t been all so urgent and stressful at the start!

Etsy, news, Trunkt and more!

Whew, it’s been a busy few weeks! After finding out that I would have to move out of my current studio shortly (our building has new owners, and they’re putting a hallway through my space), I ranaround like a crazed chicken trying to find a new space that I could afford, and fit everything into. I’ve signed a lease, and take possession of my new space tomorrow! Photos to come in the next few days…. so between packing up the old studio and moving to the new one, I’m going to be a busy howler monkey for the next few weeks.

In other news, I was accepted into Trunkt! You can check me out here!

And, perhaps most exciting of all, I had two treasuries on the frontpage of etsy recently! Two treasuries that I was the curator for…. very exciting. The screenshots are below… and please check out my current treasury, an ode to the Log Driver’s Waltz
