changes are a comin'....

My very own, personal and dedicated craft space has been in my sights for a LONG time. Really long time. My husband is very supportive of my crafting and is as happy as I am that I have found gainful employment in a field that I love. Rocky has made every effort to help me get my own space and has decided to make the ultimate sacrifice....he's giving me our 2 car garage!!! Yes, you read that correctly. Our garage is detached and has a heat/air unit already in it. It is insulated and other than the overhead door, you won't be able to tell it's a garage.

The decision was made just this past Friday and as you can see by the picture below, he's well on his way to getting things out and cleaned up.

By the end of this week we'll be mudding and texturing the walls and hopefully painting next weekend if not earlier. The double doors in the back are going to be painted with chalkboard paint and will serve as my calendars for class schedules and creative deadlines. LOVE IT! I know it is probably hard for you to envision now but just wait. ;)

The best part is that I will now have room to teach and host crops at HOME!! I had numerous ladies ask me this past weekend at the convention if I taught Copic classes...thankfully I was able to get their info then and tell them they're coming soon. While I will get to move into my new space in less than 60 days, I will not "open" for classes and such 'til after the first of the year. I have picked out some delicious furniture from Ikea and will blow my tax return fixin' the place up. HA!

And, with the new craft space will come a new blog but that is still in the works. Thanks for letting me share my exciting news with you! I am craftin' the day away today and will have new projects to share later this week. In the mean time, stop by tomorrow to see my latest sewing adventure.

Awesome is right! I can't imagine having that much space for crafting. What fun to get it all set up! Rocky deserves an extra hug!
