Hello again!

I know it's been a very long time since I've actually had time to post.  It truly amazes me how much time I have put into opening the shop and there is still so much to do.  If anyone has a cloning machine, I'd so pay to use it!

In between painting, cleaning, moving, organizing, and prepping I have been working on several pieces to add to my space at the shop. I am so excited about Paris Grey right now!  There just isn't enough ASCP to last me these days. Can't wait till I get my shipment in!...I digress.  With having such a large shop, I have several new pieces going in...and all of them seem to be a varying stages of not quite being finished...Hum...could it be the ADD or just the excitement of it all?! lol~

To add to all the excitement and work, last week was Kane Co. Flea market and this week it's also town wide garage sales!  I have been so blessed to meet some of the nicest people at both sales!  And even a couple from my run ins over the last week or so have taken a spot at the shop! I can't wait to snap up some pics of their spaces!  The gals that are joining me are so talented and fun!  Can't wait to get the doors open as I know their stuff will blow right out the door like these good ol Chicago winds!

Speaking of I said, everything seems to be at one stage or another with nothing quite finished.  I must admit, my fav piece right now is this beauty!  It's from an old antique piano from the early 1900's.  I used ASCP Louis Blue and Old White. As much as I want need to sell this, I'm having a hard time convincing myself of that!

Here are some random pics of my studio at home.  Will be at the shop a lot over the next few days with everyone moving in!  Will post more pics soon!
