Mandy,(Stairway Healing Center) Nancy (Spinning Glass Studio) and Jenna (Cold Antler Farm) were good enough to get up early on a Sunday morning and help me and Jon move my stuff from my Studio Barn into my new School House Studio. It was really quite amazing, we had it all packed into our cars and Jenna truck in a half hour. These women don’t mess around.
The holder for my bird feeder was sticking out of Jenna’s truck so I grabbed a piece of fabric out of one of my boxes to tie to the end of it. I got some comments about it being girly, that only made me wish it was pink instead of blue.
They helped unload the boxes and furniture (I had to leave my desk behind, it wouldn’t fit through the door) just as quick. I was a truly overwhelmed when they left trying to figure out how it would all fit. My new studio, just like our new house, is smaller than the old. So when everyone left (no one stayed for tea, sensing that I needed to get to work, sweet women that they are) I started putting things on shelves. No more cardboard boxes (well maybe a just a couple for overflow). I thew a lot out too. I was surprised how much of the boxes were filled with unusable scraps. This is what my studio looked like at the end of the day. I’m not quite there yet, and I have to find a replacement for my desk, but I got pretty close to done. I think it will be easy finishing it off tomorrow.
