After months of halfhearted occasional posts, I think I feel like blogging again. I hope so. It's like exercise for me in that I rarely am in he mood but I feel super excellent after. I just need to get back in the habit. Besides, I have loads to catch up on!
Justin and I moved into our new home. It is the best feeling ever. When the boxes are fully unpacked and the art is hung, I'll be eager to share. It's kind of a disaster right now though. The best part is having an entire room to make things and store products. I haven't had a real studio in a few years and I don't know how I managed.
Another thing I don't know how I managed without is a car. Neither Justin or I had access to a car for the past two years! We did lots of walking and train riding and, in general, enjoyed the experience. But we decided that the limitations of carlessness were getting too aggravating so we bought an old white Volvo and I think it's the best! We are reveling in our ability to go ANYWHERE at ANY TIME! I have some driver anxiety that I need to get over but I'm thinking that this manageable and exceedingly safe car will be the one that helps me learn to drive again.
I'm actually tackling a rather long and significantly out of my comfort zone trip this weekend. I'm driving across Massachusetts from Salem to Northampton for the Twist craft fair I'm participating in. I'm usually a bit nervous going to a big show but I'm extra extra nervous with a long drive to boot! Today, I'm getting in some driving practice and putting the finishing touches on my display. Wish me luck!
