I'm back in Action!

Thanks to Ikea and my talented husband I have an amazing new work space! 
You can see where we started from here.

For the first week. That comfy chair got the most work out. We found that the afternoon light floods into these windows, which quickly became a prime napping local for myself and our two cats.

I still have to hang my inspirations and magnetic boards up and sew the curtains, but that will come in time. Right now I'm doing the most important thing... sewing. I have 6 purses in progress. 5 will be for sale on Etsy and 1 will be given as a free give-a-way! I showed a sneak peak of the fabrics here.
And you can see the look of the bags on this post.
My Etsy account is also getting an overhaul. I'm switching everything to www.makeitsing.etsy.com which will hopefully be more convenient and once everything is up I'll be having a sale. So keep posted.
I love my new work desk and the sewing table is absolutely perfect. I've been photographing birds all winter and spring and have some great reference photos accumulated for some new watercolors. The now blooming flowers are always inspirations, as well! So I can't wait to paint at my new desk, but one thing at a time.
 I have great storage and we painted the doors with chalk board paint which has already been great fun for my husband and I, currently they are covered with little ridiculous drawings and inside jokes. Hope you enjoy this peak into my new world!

Where have I been!

I never expected to be gone so long and truly have no excuse. We found out we were pregnant with our first child in January. The shock and excitement of this was indescribable. I then was forced to do something I have never done before: Keep a Secret! The easiest thing to do it was to lay low. I also was battling  a huge drop in energy as well as lack of a studio. So not much got done artistically other than the fun little announcement shown above. So, I am now 14 weeks. We are due October 6th. Also the studio was completed yesterday. I love it so much. I hope to have it all set up and ready to go ASAP. I can't wait to begin sewing and painting again. 
Thanks for your patience with me on my hiatus.
I get to hear the baby's heart beat on Thursday and next month we get to find out the sex!
Here is our little Bun at 11 weeks you can really see her/his little leg!
