I keep saying that I’m going to blog – then another week goes by and I still haven’t blogged. And here it is – like MONTHS now.. I genuinely love writing on here – I love letting you all know what’s going on in the doll world and it’s neat for me to not be limited to 250 characters ( Facebook posts max out at this). All I’ve been able to manage lately has been a post here and there on Facebook. It’s just been BUSY – around last October, John and I were looking forward to things ‘calming down a bit’ so we could think about Bamboletta where it’s going and what we want to do .. we’ll it’s not slowed down one bit – it’s just gotten busier and busier. I’m excited by every thing that is happening but once in a while I think ‘What the heck am I doing?’ haha.. it honestly feels like everything has sort of happened, the right people came along at the right time, opportunities opened up – I feel like I’m just along for a lovely ride.
The icing on the cake – I LOVE this chandelier!!
So – the biggest thing lately has been our new studio. Getting our own digs has been SO incredibly good for us. Leaving the house to go to ‘work’ has been really good for me personally. I think about the dolls all the time, I think about them, their clothes, how I should cut their hair, what sort of yarns I can use as well as a million other business-y sort of things – I really can’t ‘shut down’ – so to not be living in it as well has been very good for me – I always have sewing and paperwork with me but it’s nice to have a bit of seperation. When it was just me – or just me and Brandi working – being in the house was great. But we literally busted out of my basement and having so many people coming in and out all day was a little much for my family – anyhow, the move has been rad. I’m in a great location with a weaver beside me and a yarn shop about 60 steps away – heaven. I know most of you have seen these pics and know about the studio but lots of my family aren’t on FB so I thought I should post them here. I’ll take more from the other angle and post them soon! I’m incredibly content with this spot and feel like it’s the starting point for the next step in our business – just not quite sure where that step is just yet – or if there is even a next step , I’m dang happy here where I am. Okay – I’m making no sense now .. should go back and sew on some more little faces 😉
PS What is happening to Vince on Entourage? Such a dark season – I love it!
