links for your weekend, and a peek of the new studio

It’s a little bare, but it feels great to be in my new space! As you can see I still have boxes to unpack and pictures to hang on the walls. What you don’t see is the messy overflow of invitation samples, paper, and half-assembled Ikea furniture on the opposite wall. Truly, there is never enough storage.

I bought these hairpin legs to make a couple desks, and will order oak Ikea kitchen counters for the tops. Brendan and I are going to build some narrow shelves for invitation and stationery display, and I’ll try to fit a comfy chair or two, maybe a rug. Then a white vinyl logo for the door, some real desk chairs…

Getting settled is going to take longer than I thought. But you know that feeling when you walk in your house after being at work all day? That relief? It’s been two long years, and while I know there are things I’ll miss about working from home, there’s nothing like that feeling. Leaving work at work, and home at home.

It is fantastic! A cozy little place. You know, I just realized that a wooden chari, a table, some pictures and flowers are enough to make a place look like the most comfy home, Lovely!
