Yesterday was a fantastic day. As it was cold and foggy in the morning (a drastic change from the last few weeks of 35 degrees plus and sunshine) Tyler and I had breakfast in bed while reading books and craft magazines. Then I got up, got motivated and finished putting together my studio! I’m so excited, I’m sitting in it right now to type up this blog. It feels amazing to have such a perfect space to imagine and create – I owe Tyler a huge debt of gratitude for re-locating his work area into the bedroom – although he doesn’t seem to mind having his desk so close to the bed (although he may be napping more,it’s hard to say for sure). After I finished creating the studio, Tyler and I had a fantastic dinner of grilled cheese sandwiches and headed out to the Debutante’s Brawl – the first ever fundraiser the Yukon Roller Girls have put on. I spent the night skating around a bar in a mini skirt and fishnets coaxing money out of the hands of inebrieted patrons, and dancing (well sort of…dancing is hard in skates) to a local rockabilly group – we had so much fun (and made a good chunk of change for the club as well). I finished my evening (morning) on a dock on Schwatka Lake with a few friends who are up visiting for a couple of weeks from Vancouver. You have to love days when you’re given so many reasons to smile.
And now to share some photos of my new space with you:
