I'll keep telling myself that... Ha ha

This is the BEFORE picture. Pretty bad huh? If you click on it it will take you to my flickr page where there is about 18 more pictures of my entire studio. I am not hiding anything. This is what you get when you take one over creative woman, 2 businesses (going on 3) and a full time job... But it's gonna change :o)

I cleaned, scrubbed and sweated last night. And I made progress. A lot. It feels so good and I can't wait to keep going. Hopefully by Monday I will have some awesome pictures to show you the transformation...

Are you excited? I know I am!!

Happy friday friends :o)

  3. wow!

    you've got some work ahead of ya.
    can't wait to see the after photos!
    i'd love to come over and help; i love to clean!
    but i'm still trying to get organized here! :P

    how many torches do you use?

    is that small one a blazer? that's what i use right now.
    what are the larger ones?

  4. ha ha thanks!

    I actually love to clean and get organized too. I know it's probably hard to believe after seeing the photos. Just haven't had time...

    I have too small jewelry torches from rio grande and one larger from william sonoma which is great. I do some torch enameling with a plumbers torch. I'm saving up for a "real" torch though. I'd love to have a little smith or something similar but for now I just have to make due with what I have. First on my very long shopping list is a proper dust collector.


I treasure your words and the fact that you are
taking the time to share them with me.
Please forgive me if I don't respond personally to you.
I always try but sometimes time just flies away!
