As if we are not busy enough, we got a new puppy a few days ago. Her name is Roxy and she is a 5 month old American Pit Bull Terrier. Oh the joys of trying to house break a puppy! How can they pee so much?!
So this is the space that is becoming my art studio. I manage to get rid of most of the cobwebs, and to get it a little organized. I need to assemble my new-to-me drafting desk. When I get some spare cash my husband and I are going to finish the walls and give them a fresh coat of paint.
The only disadvantage to the space so far is the fact it is a little cold, needs proper electricity ran to it and needs better ventilation for oil painting. It is still a lot better than what I was working with before, which was temporary space on the kitchen table.
Chapter 3, part 1 of my interactive online novel is now posted. Sorry it took so long. Please come read it and vote on what will happen in part 2.
I has the internet again!
Well we have been in our new home a week now and still have so much work to do. One of Jason’s first projects is going to be to build custom book shelves in our very 1930′s-1940′s detective noir, diesel-punk-ish the office. Yes, you will get to see before and after pictures. After that he plans on building custom furniture for the living room and a airship pirate, loft bed for the kid. I adore what a awesome little geek my kid has become.
I have the daunting task of trying to unpack everything, put together the kitchen, bedrooms, and art studio. The fun part has been dealing with the fact the previous occupant of this home left behind a lot of crap that needs sorted through. The upside is there is a ton of free glassware for me to practice glass etching on… that’s right I’m going to start glass etching my art. Sqeee! I can’t wait!
Oh I’ve started sewing again, working on curtains for the kitchen right now, then moving on to curtains for the bedrooms. I’ll be sure to post pictures for all you DIY fans.
