You may have noticed that it’s been a little quiet here on Shabby Art Boutique for the past few weeks and that’s because I’ve been working on a big project that hasn’t left much time for anything else.
I’ve been waiting to share our secret project with you….
So… we recently sold our business. We packed up our home at short notice and have moved to a whole new city…. in a different state…. with no real plans!
We are not sure where we’ll end up, but for the time being we are living in a new house. It’s a stepping stone house until we have some adventures and find our new place to settle down.
For the first time in our lives we are just ‘winging it’…. each day is a new day and a new adventure.
Of course, a new house means a new studio space!
This one is light and airy and there’s lots of space to have several work stations.
I’m not completely set up yet…. but what I have managed to do is set up the basic storage units and allocate my supplies to each one; sewing, painting, paper craft, scrapbooking etc.
When time permits, I will unpack more and perhaps rearrange a few things.
I think it takes a month or so to really settle in and to see if the layout works.
I’m excited to get back into my studio full time…
And especially look forward to creating lots of new things to share with you all.
During the packing and unpacking of the craft room, I discovered lots of treasure. Some of it had been long forgotten about and other items has been packed away in our storage unit.
The whole process was a little like shopping in my very own craft store… except I already own it all and I didn’t have to pay for it (again).
A few old friends have found new places to hang out, so it still feels comfortable and familiar…. like my old studio space.
It wouldn’t be a move if there wasn’t a few casualties!!
Sadly, it was one of my GreenGate teapots that was damaged this time.
The handle has been glued back on and while it will never be used again as a teapot, I’m sure she’ll make a pretty vase for roses.
I look forward to sharing more photos of our new home with you soon, but for now, my hubby and I are travelling overseas and enjoying a much needed break.
There will still be a few things popping up on Shabby Art Boutique while I’m away.
