Settling In

We have finally arrived and are getting settled in here in Austin, Texas. The move went quite smoothly, everything arrived on time and in one piece and the kids are adjusting well and making new friends at school.

I have been busy unpacking and working to make our new house a home. Last weekend I finally got to work on my new stamping studio! I finally have a whole room devoted just to my business and I love how it came out. It is the only room I've painted so far. It was painted a very dark gray-green since it was the former owner's media room. Obviously I needed to lighten it up. I knew I wanted a classy but fun feel to the room so I decided my color scheme would be gray, black and hot pink. Hey, its my girly room so I needed to have some pink somewhere in my house! I painted the walls a light gray and all my bookshelves and my desk are black which compliment nicely. Then I added pops of pink all over with baskets, accents and flowers. This is the view of one half of the room.

I plan to get or make some cute pink valences for the windows and this little black table will soon be replaced with a big one that seats 8 as soon as my new kitchen table arrives! Sorry it's so dark but if I opened the blinds the bright sunshine made glares.

For Christmas my parents bought me this storage unit for all my ink pads and reinkers. Right now it's on my Big Shot table but as soon as I get some heavy duty anchors it will be up on the wall. Don't you just love it?

So now I am ready and open for business! I've scheduled a few classes and hope to start booking workshops as well. If you are in the Austin area, please check my calendar to see what classes are coming up or contact me to book your own workshop. I've got lots of ideas to inspire you!
