A Fresh Start + Update News

Okay, so my studio may look the same to you, but really...I've been organizing + decluttering like a banshee! And that includes my crafting/ shipping supplies storage "annex" upstairs- which seriously should not exist. My mohair and bagged scraps are now in bins for easy access, and I finally threw out (recycled) the big cardboard box I was storing my scraps in "out of sight, out of mind". Now I can see everything! I pulled some sweet fabric for Valentine's creations (sock monkeys? hmmm....) and threw some starchy vintage fabric in the wash to soften it up. It may sound weird, but I actually enjoy doing laundry. It's like having new clothes again (well, maybe not new.. but at least fresh).

On my table today are special orders in progress and a mini antiqued panda for my next update. I also just got some fab new mohair and awesome dyes, which I'm super excited to experiment with. The Tampa bear show next month is quickly approaching, but before I can turn my thoughts to sunscreen and bug spray... I will be doing a grand Valentine's update on my web site! Bears for sure, and if you got my hint earlier, a few Sock Monkeys in love :) My update goal is by 1st week of February. Yay! Hope you're excited about it as I am!

~Have a wonderful Wednesday~
