it has really started to feel like spring around our house despite the rainy weather outside (click on the photos for more details). i can't believe how long it has been since my last post, but i had to take a little break from blogging to catch up on a few things like taxes and unexpected home repairs. we were all set to finish the home renovations, but ended up having to do a bunch of additional plumbing work in the bathroom. that lead to us having to cut a huge hole in the wall of what was about to be my studio. we finally got it all patched up and repainted the room a nice white. i found this rug a while back that turned out to be perfect for the space so now i just need to find a new desk. it feels so amazing to finally have a room all to myself. i am excited to get working on more regular shop updates and blogging more often.
