**UPDATE! The studio renovation is complete and I will be sharing photos of it soon! And the new website is now in full effect :)**
I remember it starting with, “Well we’ve only been here 3 weeks, so we haven’t had a chance to change anything yet!”
That was a legitimate excuse. But it soon became:
Well we just moved in a couple months ago, so…
We haven’t been here long, and things are crazy around the holidays…
We’ll have more time once I’m home more often on the weekends this winter…
I scared the HECK out of myself when I realized that we have only been in our “new” house for 10 months now – ALMOST A WHOLE YEAR!
“Oh, we’ve only been here for a full year, so in twelve months, three hundred and sixty-five days, we just really haven’t had time to get a quote for studio floors.”
REALLY?? What is wrong with me? Who is this person I have become? I have this To-Do list that I keep stating should be done, yet I do nothing to make it happen. Granted, budget can certainly play a part in some of these big plans. But I don’t even know what the cost will actually be, because I haven’t even asked anyone! Well, I figured if I write it here, I will have to actually do something about it. Keep me accountable, internet!
That quote for studio floors – it’s happening on Saturday. After that, painting will commence, then maybe, MAYBE I will actually be able to hang all these beautiful portraits on my walls (like the new 20×30 canvas featured below, currently on my loveseat), instead of just leaning them against the wall, and moving them every time I need to move anything around the studio! Sheesh! (As an added bonus, I won’t have to wipe kids fingerprints off all the frames after every session!)
Once my floors are in, I will be better able to use the studio as meeting space as well, without having the sub-floor get in my way. (Don’t ask.)
Also on the radar – a new website! Yippee! Hooray! Happy Happy Joy Joy! You may not have noticed (or it might be glaringly obvious, especially now) but I don’t technically have a website, per se. The blog has been my main source of interweb presence, along with my Facebook page, and it has gotten me by. After all, you’re here, right? :) But I am long over due for a professional looking site that is better able to showcase all my fabulous clients, and make it easier for you all to connect with me! So keep an eye out for that in the sometime-sort-of-soon-but-maybe-not-too-soon-depending-on-how-things-go future!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Enjoy your green beer :)
