I have been spending a lot of time on finding my focus and refining my work. That involves going through the studio and using up or getting rid of materials and promoting new products as well as letting go of past ideas. I have always had so many ideas and projects I want to do, but finding resources for selling or promoting is the hard part. I found this lovely, modern dollhouse that I designed and SA built, I really love it, just needs to find the right home.
I am loving working with black and white.
Monday here again. Things are piling up around here. Orders are going out and students are coming for classes. It is going to be a busy week, but I can see a clear place after a couple more weeks of keeping my head down. Hope to have some time to clear the air and focus on new designs and some others ideas I have on the radar.
I have been so busy getting orders done time is flying by. It has me rethinking my studio space layout and storage areas. I need places for finished work as well as cut parts and painting area. As always searching on line I found these great solutions. I always love drawers as oposed to open shevlin(which is what I have now) it makes the space feel too busy, with everything in site. I know some people love to see everything around them but I like to set up displays for inspiration, and have most things put away. It just makes me feel calmer, and not so overwhelmed with ideas.

What do you think, do like everything out and visual, or more controled clutter?
We had good success at this summers BMAC wholesale show in Baltimore. One of my best orders was from “Home Goods/TJ Maxx” store, they are doing an all U.S. made in store section, this fall and selected a set of my reclaimed wood tiles to showcase. Very exciting, but very short deadline, so a lot of painting in the next few weeks.
