What's better than meeting blog friends in person??? Creating art with them!!!! I was so excited when Yvonne told me she lived in just a few towns over from me, practically right next door!!! So we made an art date and this morning she arrived around 10:00 a.m. and we chatted, enjoyed some tea and coffee and had fun with some stick-back fun foam stamping.
It was wonderful meeting you, Yvonne, and I look forward to more art visits in the future!!!
Our time got cut short because my brother-in-law, Dave, was sooooo generously spending his afternoon with me installing some significant overhead lighting for my studio. I LOVE light!! I NEED light and lots of it! Well, thanks to Dave (he is a Superman by the way) I now have the brightest light in my studio loft so I can finally create deep into the night and really get back to using more of my night time hours! Finally!
I helped where I could but he worked his butt off and wired and hung this 8-foot, 4-bulb fluorescent light right above my studio worktable. We couldn't have done it without one of my nice neighbors letting me use her rolling scaffolding! I think I want one of my own. Who am I kidding? I can't find permanent places for the stuff left in a few boxes let alone this awesome piece of rolling utility!
So the sun has almost set in this picture but you can see my brand new 8-foot light above the studio. The poor ferrets weren't going to get any sleep with these runway lights so I had to move them down to the other end of the loft. Very soon, I will have to bring them to a place that will be able to help find them a new home. (it's going to kill me) They actually give me kisses now when I take them out of their cage.
So every little improvement to my new space is critical for me to be creative. It looks like a disheveled mess, but it has come a long way since I moved in. Now, if I could take a week off to really get some work done! I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and their creative juices are flowing!!!
