Thank you for the lovely comments I received on my last post... It's been a long couple of years of more downs than ups, but I am feeling better these days. I do spend most of my time at my day job designing, and I squeezed in designing a couple of fabrics...
They are available for purchase through the Spoonflower website if anyone is interested.
I think the healing will still take some time as I figure out which direction to head in. I finally finished my move to the house we are now renting. In the move I unearthed old patterns and plushies from so long ago. And wow, my sewing skills really changed over the years... At the moment, I think I would like to write out proper directions and create another booklet and some more kits to possibly reopen the shop with. We'll see... I am still in the 'thinking about it' stages.
Here are some pics of the new place, though:
The livingroom (still unpacking)
My studio: the manga collection
Living room: My Transformer collection
Dining room: Collection of paintings/creations
Plants I planted out front
It's a cute little house that is Chris' grandmother's. She is unable to live by herself and now in a care center. Moving my life after living in the same cramped place for 6 years was crazy. I am hoping to get my studio all spurced up with a nice orange rug and some big pillows for the floor so I can chill out and read manga or watch tv. My last studio was all about work, work, work... I want this space to feel more like a space I like spending time in.
I will try and be sure to continue posting as I am able... Thank you again, everyone who still reads. <333
