How's it been going? It's been a whirlwind of busy in my neck of the woods. I recently moved to a cute little hidden home in central Austin, which has been a bit of an adjustment, only because I left all of my comforts that were in my 'hood but I am quickly finding that I am loving it here even if it's a bit Austin weird. That is what I am here for, right? I have had nothing but weird living situations since I moved here so why would I expect this to be any different?
Welcome to my kitchen. Something I didn't really have in my last house. I am excited to build some pieces and re-purpose some others that I look forward to finding either by thrifting or dumpster diving!
I love the half tile, half wall decor in the kitchen. It's very old and large and CUTE! And check out my view and the size of that YARD!! Par-tay!
I am currently running Fartsy Arts full time and have been trying to surround myself with colors, art, and inspiration. So far it's working because I feel pretty confident about the level of production in preparation for the holidays this year. Starting in July is something that I have always strived to do but never quite got there. My Etsy shop is finally getting stocked with ALL new stuff. WOAH. Right? So. Much. Excitement!
A lot of my time has been spent at TechShop here in Round Rock-Austin. They have laser cutters. OMG drool. It has allowed me to expand my business in ways I never believed was possible. They have the DC's (Dream Consultants - WHAT!???) there to help at all times with any questions you have and a community of makers that serve as endless inspiration and brain storming sessions. If you have a TechShop near you... GO. Join. DO IT!
In the upcoming weeks I will have a lot of new product releases. I have a lot of ideas up my sleeve that I plan to start executing this week, so stay tuned!!
