It's no secret that this poor blog has been forgotten in the past few months. I have a good reason for it though! We picked up or stuff, animals and lives and moved across the border for a fresh start in North Carolina. It has been hectic, messy and of course stressful but definitely worth the move.
|Our new home!|
Our home is large, brand new (still has new house smell), and a little scary but it's beautiful and we are completely in love with the little community we've transplanted into.
One of the things that I most love about our new digs is the fact that I now have studio space! Mike helped me out this weekend with building a studio desk and I went out this morning and found the perfect chair so that I can start getting back into the swing of things. There are still loads that I want to do to complete my space, but I have all the important things in there now.
Also, I have to say that building your own custom desk wasn't that difficult to do. the "legs" are actually shelving units purchased at Walmart. The top is a piece of sanded plywood with a piece of tempered hardboard on top for a smooth, splinter free surface to work on. There are several different takes on building your own desk on Pinterest for different looks, etc.
Goals for the week:
Get back into a routine with the shop
Clean the house
Unpack some more boxes
Get Guest rooms squared away
Do some laundry
Seems like a small list doesn't it? I'm going to repeat that in my head like a mantra while working on it this week!
