I've laid permanent claim to the sun room.
Come June two of the kiddos will be official teenagers and the third a young adult of twenty so I figured their summer time use of the space as a playroom is a thing of the past. The remaining toys and collections I found squirrel away in drawers and baskets were cleared out and I moved in.
I can't tell you how amazing it is to have a desk area set up with everything I need to construct the little books within arms reach.
Ditto to my painting station on the other wall.
Supplies fit easily into the baskets...
...and the drawers I freed up.
In this one room at least I finally feel organized.
Each night I do my best to tidy up...
...but when I do have a project in the works now I don't have to worry about cleaning it up in time for dinner or homework. What a great feeling!
Creating Lucys and mini books in a sunny studio space is making for a delightful May. My most recent batch is visible in it's early stages here and for those of you with eagle eyes you may notice I had four little dolls in the works this time around. This is my new plan of action as I've got plans to host a table at the Southern New Hampshire Doll Show and Sale next September and need to slowly build my inventory for it. I figure "one for me and three for you" ought to do the trick for the time being which means...
there are three new Lucy's and mini books ready to go!
Numbers 12, 14, and 15 will be available in the shop this coming Thursday, May 22nd
between the hours of 5 and 7 PM.
Looking ahead a bit more I wanted to let you know June will kick off a summer full of Lucy goodies to come. New Patchwork Tale products will arrive each month. There's even an itty bitty clue for one of them in the photo above!
In addition, the reset of my sun room studio has me back in the Cottage Quest frame of mind and trudging through the rest of our house I see oodles of items that will need to go. I figure a good portion of those can be either destashed or offered up as Attic Treasures
in the shop as well.
It's going to be a fun and busy summer!
