Post-Market and Holidays

Sugarplum Market was a success! It was a lot of fun, I got to meet fellow area artists, and introduce new people to the marshmallows! Very glad I did it, and hope to do it again next year.

The holidays were a good time to relax and unwind a bit, very important after all the craziness leading up to the holidays. 11 days off the day job and I didn't do much, really. Which I needed. I won't even wish I'd done any work, because I really, really needed to turn "off" from everything for awhile. Glad I was able to!

While I was "off", I worked on the new studio space a bit. Husband helped me get a new shelf up and put together the new drawing table. I love the studio, it's coming together nicely. It's probably not a typical work space, but my work isn't that messy, mostly I need a place to store supplies — so I opted for a relaxing, beautiful space. I started with neutral tones to counter the bright colors in the rest of the house, and have been working on it from there. (Husband said it looks like coffee threw up in there, but he likes it better now that it's starting to come together!)

And, I started working in crochet again. I think this might become a yearly post-holiday winter thing. It's kinda relaxing. Below is an photo of the scarf I made as well as a couple shots of the studio.
