Things have been a bit hectic here lately, so I apologize for not posting as often as I'd like. You see, we put our house on the market last week and we've been working hard to get it ready. As you may know, John and I have been talking about selling our house for a while now. With our daughter's move to the city and our son half way through college, it finally felt like the right time to downsize. And although I am looking forward to finding a new, smaller home, there is one room that I will dearly miss — my beloved studio.
My studio is the one room in our house that we added in 1991. Back then, I had a heavy work load as a graphic designer. I needed a space that was quiet with a separate entrance so that I could work and meet with clients and printers without disturbing our growing family. Now I use the room as a sewing and craft space, to run my Etsy business, and to write this blog. It has served me well for the past 22 years.
You have heard me go on about how important it is to have a space of your own, a quiet place to create and reflect on life. My studio has been just that. Filled with all of my favorite things, it has been a constant source of inspiration. Spending time here has made me happy each and every day.
Now my hope is that someone new will feel the same way. So wish us luck! Let's hope a lovely family will want to raise their children in the home that has sheltered us so well for over two decades.
