Getting Back into the Swing of Things

Slowly, but surely, I’m working to gather some creative momentum again. The past few months, I’ve organized my work space and made some good progress on some old projects that have been wanting for attention.

However, my first real foray back into the thick of things came as a custom order. This gentlemen reached out to me and was interested in a previous design – the Broccoli and Carrot friends. It seems these wonderful little figures have won many hearts!

I enlarged the design a bit so it would better fit on an adult sized shirt. They are even better at that size!

Here’s a peek at them in-progress:

And, complete – ready to be shipped:

I’m excited to send these off. What a wonderful way to get back into the swing of things!

Getting Things Moving Again

Wow! It’s been long time since I’ve posted on this site. We’ve added a second baby to the family mix and that has definitely been an exciting addition. The little guy is about a year and a half now and I’m feeling like it’s time to get back to doing more things for me.

One of those things is to start organizing and sorting everything to reopen my two shops. It feels good to get back into things! Here’s a glance at some of the fun things going on behind the scenes.

First, things first: adding some more flavor to my work space. Here’s how things were originally.

Then I got a new work table, increasing my work space significantly. Woo!

Then, a few months back, I finally got around to putting up a gallery wall of my creative and fun pictures. These are pieces of artwork that I love and it gives the room some pop and energy. It really came together nicely!

After that, I reorganized my cabinets and put things all together along one wall. Here’s how things stand now:

All the changes have created a much better flow with the room and my work space. So ready to get moving with things!
