Open for Business

The shop is open again! Hurray!

I've decided to just go ahead and open since there have been endless delays with the addition we're building on our house (which includes my studio).  There's no sense in waiting any longer just because the built in desks aren't ready and most of my art supplies are in storage still.  

I'm not sure when I'll be able to make new work... I was so busy creating a HUMAN BEING for most of 2012 that all my creative.. ahem... juices... were used up.  But now that The Baby has been outta my body for 9 weeks, I think I can get back to creating new work in whatever time I can manage to spare. 



Spare time? I'm typing this entire post with one hand and while simultaneously nursing The Baby.

Clearly I must be delusional.

Here's a picture of what the studio looks looks like now-->

I'll be sure to post a picture once I set it up!

Little Update

I have been meaning to post forever. And after procrastinating for 18 months (18! Yikes!) I've decided that perhaps I should try to post more often... Ya think?!

Life is happening, dreams of years ago made to come true. Family, love, friendship, and growth. All of that sums up the past 18 months. We have a new bundle of joy who for 8 weeks has brought so much love to our lives. The boys, now 9 and 7 couldn't love him more or be more doting. I am just head over heels over this little boy who's changed my life in the best way possible. Things are good.

The shop is closed for now, but it'll open eventually. I am working on setting up a new studio and so that needs to be done before Swell Papel gears up for 2013.
