Big things have happened recently.
It all started when I began working on an event location for the Through Infertility collection Open House. I was touring spaces and dreaming about having a space that I could better photograph my artwork. I was planning and thinking and working, and before I even realized I was setting up an appointment to see an available studio space.
I had already booked Jamberry (in Dunlap) for my event. So this really had nothing to do with THAT, yet, in a way it did.
I looked at the studio spaces available and I just knew it was time to take the leap. Time to have a studio space that would be offsite (not in our home), time to have more room to stretch and grow with my work, time to have a space that would lend itself to more creative bursts.
I've worked so hard on this space over the last few weeks. Hauling in supplies and furniture. It feels more and more like my own every time I step into this room.
A few days ago, was the First Friday event in Peoria... and I was able to open the doors to my studio for friends, family and the public to come and see. It is truly a dream come true. I can't wait to see what lies ahead.
I love using words to connect with my fellow humans.
