When I say that the business was taking over our house, I wasn’t exaggerating. We moved three 14′ truckloads of furniture, tools, packing materials and stuff over to the studio today. It wasn’t tightly packed in there, but they were pretty full truckloads!
We had four guys helping us and they worked incredibly hard. We had three pretty monstrous pieces to move, but they were able to get it done.
I started to get even more giddy as I watched my stuff populate the studio. It was coming together even better than I envisioned.
I used the oversized oak hutch and t-shirt counter to create a place to film videos and teach workshops. Most pieces will be on casters, but these will be fixed in one spot. (I need to clean out and organize the drawers in the counter.)
I was not super organized for this move, so my mom and I worked on some general sorting and organizing to keep things from getting too overwhelming. I loved seeing little hints of how the space is coming together…
…complete with a tattooed bamboo mat.
The bathroom isn’t anything to get too excited about, so I’m trying to inject a little cuteness with wire baskets and a chippy table (and it needs a good scrubbing.)
Jeff dropped off dinner for my mom and I and he forgot to bring forks. Fortunately, I had some small wooden spoons I bought for photo shoots! (We almost ate off of mini paint stir sticks.)
I was so tired and sore and my brain was a little fried, but as my mom and I were sitting down, eating our dinner, I was so satisfied. It was exactly what I was hoping for at the end of the day. There’s something about the first take-out dinner eaten in a new space, filled with so much possibilities and the anticipation of the future.
Tomorrow Kriste and I are going to work on more organization, which may be like the blind leading the blind, but we’ll give it a good effort!
