the new studio

Finally! My new studio is all set up and I love it. I love it so much I can't help sharing it:

this is my WRITING DESK

this is my THROWING AREA

these are my SHELVES

stay tuned for a studio-warming party, coming in the near future...


I've said it before: have a list-making addiction. Especially lists that involve setting goals. So you can imagine how excited I get when a new year rolls around. It’s basically a list-making-extravaganza. So, just for fun: here is a New Years Resolution List, in second person narrative.

1. Write EVERYDAY. Please! This is important!!! Especially if you want to finish one of those novels by your birthday. (<-last year’s birthday resolution)

2. Three words: TWO CENT SPARROW. Get on it, you slacker! You have exactly one month to brainstorm new designs, perfect old ones, and actually spend time investing in your shop.

3. Stick with school! Finish something really trivial and meaningless for once in your life! Don’t give up!!!

(I’m really not sure why there’s so much yelling involved in these resolutions… I'm taking a deep breath now… there that’s better…)

4. Learn to play the fiddle. Embrace the squawking. Master a metis tune by summer.

5. Spend more time at home on the farm. Drink lots of coffee with B & P. Treasure them. Soak them up. Make sure you get them deep inside you. They won’t be around forever.

What are your resolutions for this year?
