Studio Revamp

Where have the last two weeks gone? wait, three weeks? oh my.

I was out sick for a good week or so, including three days home from work and the discovery that sudafed is not remotely helpful for my particular body. After all that time on the couch, I was full of energy and immediately attached my studio, emptying it all out and then painting, a fabulous clean, bright white. I put up some shelves and made two desk areas.

How does this fit in that tiny room that was almost full to bursting before, you ask? Surprisingly well!

Apparently all the pictures I took are of the upper walls. You can see how seriously I take keeping paint off the ceiling. It actually has to be painted too at some point, so...

Did I ever tell you about my serger? I got a serger!

This one is actually from a couple years ago, but I recently scanned it and decided I might like it after all. Its funny how seeing something in a different context can change everything.

The "plate" was made with cardboard, glue, paper towel, tissue, and some cut shapes. Does that change it for you, knowing how humble are its origins?

Its June!

June is lovely, its hard to believe its here right now, but its lovely.

I spent most of this week being sicker than I have been in quite some time, which was not fun. But now I am feeling much much better and today was just so lovely, so things are looking up!

This evening I planted three tomato plants and 7 rows of carrots in my little garden, adding to the already planted broccoli, cucumbers, melons, radishes, lettuce, basil, sweet corn, parsley and flowers. That looks almost impressive listed out like that! Lots of things have already sprouted, and a few were transplants from my little peat pot starters. Now all thats left is planting pole beans in a pot to climb the back porch, and figuring out what to do with the herbs. And maybe some more flowers?
