Troubled Waters

January 23, 2012

It’s water day!

Toilet fixed. Check! Hot water heater installed. Check! Call to Town Hall. Check! I now have water service. Whooooo hoooooo! Eric and I scamper down to the basement (yes the scary the Silence of the Lambs one) to turn the water main. But wait… where is it? We look all over that creepy crawly space but find no water cut off.

What does this mean? Could there really be ANOTHER creepy space under this building? Why YES! Yes there is. A few phone calls later, I have in my hand a key that opens the basement area around the back of the building.

This can’t be right? Can it?!

Sigh…. the key fits the rusty old lock……

Ughhhh….. it’s even worse than I expected. Where the hell is that water shut off?! (Eric looks creepy doesn’t he?!)

Victory is ours! Water is on!!

Guess I won’t be drinking the water!


cleaning…..sanding……cleaning……..sanding

Wait a minute! I didn’t get to the sanding! Tomorrow is a new day! (Of sanding and cleaning)

 

 


It Puts the Lotion in the Basket

January 11, 2012

Whoooo hooo! I’ve got the keys to my new studio and retail space! I’M SO EXCITED!!! Be sure to check back. I will be posting oodles of pictures over the next few weeks.

For now…… here is a glimpse of my super scary basement. It puts the lotion in the basket……


She’s So Pretty is moving!

November 6, 2011

 

I know! I have been a very bad blogger girl. So many exciting things have happened this year, and I have been such a slacker about documenting it! Hopefully in the next few months I will be able to take a breath, and get everyone caught up on what is going on.
On top of everything else, I am moving my studio! I am leaving the one bedroom apartment I am currently working in and heading to an empty retail space in downtown Lonaconing.
The shop needs work. When I say work, I mean more than just a coat of paint and display demo. The building needs heat and water service installed, a crazy amount of cleaning and a bit of heavy lifting. BUT…. I think by the time my husband and I are done with it, we will have crafted an awesome creative space. A space that people will be able to stop in and see what I am up to. A space that a spool of thread, elastic and needles can be purchased. A space that you can possible take sewing lessons, or teach someone else your craftiness. I am pretty excited about our new endeavor. I will be sure to keep everyone updated with our progress!
