I opened my Boutique almost a year ago… and for the past few weeks I found myself restless. I laid in bed the other night sharing how I felt with my husband and he agreed that he saw that something was off. Business has been busy and takes most of my time. I no longer have time in the studio, sometimes for weeks on end. He happily told me that he would work at the shop and I need to take a step back and do what I love that made we want to open it in the first place. So today I have all the doors open, letting the sunshine pour into the house, the breeze bringing the fresh smell of spring. I watch my fur babies sunbathe and I get to step into my studio and let my heart feel light with happiness
Arrived home from our mini vacation in beautiful North Carolina. It was such a wonderful visit, beautiful scenery that stole my heart. When I got back home I went straight to work in the yard trying to capture some of the charm I saw in NC, and bringing here to my backyard space. We decided to fill in our pond and remove the patio and make a flower bed. I am loving it! Our days have been filled with gardening, watching our crazy dogs wear themselves out playing, me sewing and working on custom orders for the boutique. My heart is full, my soul is happy!
Been busy at the boutique! Furniture always seems to sell fast in the springtime, so I have been working on new pieces for the store…. And something for myself here and there
Here is the little something I made for myself. Found this at target on clearance for $8 from $30…
Added some tattered chicness to it a I love it!
This is the before and after of a stool for the boutique….
No posts lately, we have been busy bees moving the boutique to a new location. I am loving the new space. So much natural light, my own parking lot and a covered front porch. My studio at the shop is a little smaller but that’s ok. Having a studio at home too allows me to split my creative tools so I can work at both spaces.
Here is the new boutique space! Now that it is all set up and open I hope to be getting back in the studio soon!!
The snow has been relentless this year, but I don't mind all that much. I have been able to be quit productive in this calm winters wonderland.
This quilt is coming along nicely and almost have it done. I am just waiting on the border fabric to come in the mail so I can finish it up!
I have so thoroughly enjoyed being snowed in. Being with my wonderful husband and my dogs and sewing away to my hearts content. A few days I go in to open the boutique up and work at the studio there, however with such hazardous road conditions we have opted to not open on some days. No worries, I would rather people are safe and sound. I just putter around the house and get into mischief with the pups
