studio work

this past weekend went by SO FAST! i tried to get my new studio in order, but i still haven't figured out the best set-up plan as of yet. my three main stations will be a place to photograph items, my desk, and my clothing rack/paperwork/etc. i may also have to look into some lighting solutions because so far i can only take photos on early weekend afternoons. i'd love to take pictures outside but it's -40C, so that's out for the time being. and the chandelier creates funny shadows on my walls at different times of day. kinks to work out!

i thrifted at a couple places on saturday and found a bunch of cool stuff, including things i can't bear selling on my etsy. my mom also gave me some items to sell, including a velvet fushia coat she got from an estate sale the other day. always on the hunt for me...thanks mom! the white dress below will be for sale very shortly, as well as the multi-colour pumps and the coat, but i'm keeping the cowboy boots for me! :) my best gal brenna gave me stone lamp thing for christmas, which is a USB-powered computer lamp and night light that's supposed to be "releasing healthy negative ions that neutralize the effects of the positive ions that emanate from [my] computer screen". i dunno if this thing works, but it looks pretty darn cool, and i remember my gramma having a huge one in her house. i really dig it!

 i hope everyone had a great weekend! what did y'all get up to?

  2. What a fun light! Looking forward to seeing your space come together. I did a ton of stuff around the house this weekend! Paint, new curtains, styling, framing. Sometimes you just gotta change things up!

    1. thanks marlen! this is so true -- i have a hard time deciding what i want to keep and what i want to sell.. it's something i don't think i'll ever deal with in a proper manner. :) thanks for visiting!

  6. yay for getting your studio space organized! I love 'nesting' in my studio...it's important to do that - esp if it's your own personal creative space. I feel like I rearrange it all the time just to keep things fresh.
