I didn’t expect the stress.
First, do this:
And here’s why I want you to sign up.
We’re moving to a new live/work space near our current location. Those who are already on the mailing list got a sneak peek of the studio space in the rough.
I am very excited to share the classes and workshops, guest instructors and events that will unfold in this new space. And if you have any input of what you would love to experience, who you might like as an instructor, please share. I will be teaching soldering, art journaling and encaustic, 3 of my favorite things. And am very excited that our Art Journal Monthly group will break in the space this April!
I’m not going to announce the address or show too much about it until we have signed on the dotted line, but we are finally to the point in which only an act of God would keep the deal from going through.
What this all means is that we’re moving. Moving is listed under one of the top 5 stress situations. Yet I thought I would somehow dodge that arrow.
When we found this space, Scott and I knew it would be perfect for the both of us. I felt at ease with the deal making even with the very strange hiccups produced by the seller and bank. I was laid back, not anxious about any of it. And then one night I couldn’t fall asleep. And another I woke up at 1am. And another. Running through my brain are all the details that come along with moving.
And then there is the grieving.
I love this 100 year old house we’re in, the magnificent wood work, the claw foot tub, the beautiful wood floors. I love our neighbors whom I harass as much as possible with hollers and chats in the street and across the fence. And I will also be giving up green space. My yard! My weeds! My birds! I will miss the gold finches color change this spring. And for these things, I grieve.
If you hear crickets chirping here on this blog, please know it won’t be for long.
And picture me packing, unpacking, painting, arranging, dreaming, planning. I love it when dreams come true.
Many people have already offered to help clean or move or paint or whatever. Let me know if you’d like to be added to the list of awesomeness.
And watch out for the news of our CELEBRATION OF SPACE. Yes, there most definitely will be live music.
