Will you build me a studio? :)

Yep, that's the question I posed to my sweetie the other day. He looked at me like I was crazy and kept doing what he'd been doing. "Really, I really need one!" He's oblivious to me. So, I had to explain to him how it would be to his advantage too! He'd be able to reclaim his "mancave" (read basement) and the kitchen table, and the coffee table, and the... Whoa... I guess I'm a little spread out... Hmmmm... Yep! Definitely gonna have to keep workin on Mikee for that studio. I have the perfect spot picked out... :)

But for now, I guess it's time to reorganize and reevaluate whether I really need to take over the house:) Mike has the patience of a saint, but I am getting tired of having to move everything to eat dinner, and with school starting soon, I guess the girls are gonna need a place to do homework... Ugh! I'm disorganized by nature and hate to clean, but... I'll try! :O)


  1. How bout I have my hubby build a giant studio in my back yard, you can have one half and I will use the other half. When I run out of tape, I can borrow some of yours. If you run out of white paint I will give you some of mine. Oh, and our two little drama queens/ aspiring divas, can play in the back yard together while we create away. HeeHee. Hopefully you don't think I am a creep, I just totally know how you feel. I too need a studio. Someday!

  2. P.S. I am still drooling over your art file cabinet. That is on my "list" of things to get someday.

I have lots of dreams.  They include everything from sheep to road bikes to my dog actually listening to me...

I also LOVE to take pictures.  I mean LOVE.  Sometimes I go weeks without taking a single picture. Weird right?  Why not do something I feel that passionately about, everyday?

Here are some of my most recent pictures:

I live in Wisconsin and feel blessed that there are so many beautiful things for me to take pictures of.  When you're obsessed with barns and farm animals like I am, they're but a country road away!

I'm going to slowly try to find myself again.  For the hundredth time.  I am sorry if that is all I write about here on this blog now, but hey - blogs are journals of a sort.  They just happen to be public ;) 


Yet again...

January 2014.  I'm supposed to be uber fit, an organic farmer and self employed by now.

I. Am. None. Of. Those. Things. Not even one.  For a while, I felt like a big loser, but then I realized:

Ugh.  Yep, it's all me.  I wish. A LOT.  I DO. Very little.  I have no one or no where to place the blame, but on me. I have the tools and the knowledge, I choose to ignore both and do nothing.  It all comes down to choices.

How do I start?  Where do I start?

At the beginning. AGAIN.

-So, I've joined Weight Watchers (I wonder if there is a record for how many times a single person has started and stopped Weight Watchers?  I'd probably win).

-I'm planning my garden and new chicken coop.

-I'm baking bread today (yes, I realize this may impact WW, but homemade bread!!!)

-I'm beginning to make what I can, whether it be food or beauty products.

Too much all at once?  I have no idea.  Will I fail?  I certainly hope not.

I welcome any thoughts, advice or ideas.

And if you …

Finding My Way

Mike finished the upstairs of his shop for me. For my space. To use as I wish.  It's been finished and painted for a year.  Last night I finally felt the urge to begin to sort through and organize.  This is the beginning of my new studio space and I couldn't be more excited!!  I haven't created much art or jewelry over the last few years and until last night, I didn't realize how much I missed it.  Obviously, I still have a lot of work to do up here, but my work table is up and towards the back you can see my completely awesome blueprint file drawers that I won't be using for blueprints ;)

I've been feeling a little "off" lately and I think I've finally figured why.  I am a creative person at heart and I've been stifling my own creativity to conform and to make time for everything else.  I've decided it's time to fly my own flag and be who I am.  Who cares if one day all I think about is running and the next I am so engrossed in a pro…
