Moving work spaces...

Monday, March 25, 2013

One of my goals for this year was to have more of my items photographed on models.  This can be really challenging when you live in a small town, it's just hard to find people who are able to do what you want! But, I was really fortunate to be in contact with the lovely Emily, from emilystudios.com, who was able to provide me with some stunning photographs of some of the new items that will be in my shop when I reopen.  It is really fun to work with models and photographers this way.  You get to see your garments in a whole new light.  I absolutely love these!

I am just about caught up on my orders and am feeling more confident in my ability to get it all done.  I've still been working weekends trying to get ahead, but I'm getting there. This weekend was pretty busy, between doing my regular boring weekend stuff, like grocery shopping and checking out the new Target which just came to town, a trip to Ikea, and of course, sewing.  I am going into work today to help train the new employee at on old 'day job.' I am hoping she catches on quickly so that I will have one less responsibility to worry about.

Next weekend, Dan and I are doing a major re-arrange of the house.  When we moved in I set up my sewing stuff in our living room. When I was working 4 or 5 days a week, and sewing on weekends only, I wanted to be able to be somewhere close to where Dan was so we could kind of hang out a bit.  But, now that I am home sewing pretty much every day, I'm finding that my work space is a) constantly messy c) I now have a large stockpile of supplies to deal with and b) constantly looking at my workspace stresses me out when I'm trying to relax.  So, we are combining Dan's art studio with my sewing space into one of the spare bedrooms upstairs  We picked up some bookshelves at Ikea on Sunday, and have a whole plan laid out. Our Living room is moving to our front room, the stuff in the front room is moving upstairs, the dining table is moving back up from the basement to where the living room is now. It's actually going to be  a ton of work and I'm really hoping my brother will kindly come over and help move furniture, but I'm really looking forward to not having to constantly look at my work and having a real living room / dining room area.
