Half here and half there...

I mentioned our on going project of moving my studio 
from one room to another bigger room.

So, we got rid of 90% of the stuff we had in the girls playroom.

I consolidated my books on our massive book shelves,

and we moved my bench and tables in there yesterday.

It's nice to walk in there.  So clean, not cluttered at all...
I almost don't want to disturb it with the rest of my stuff.

But move it I must, because I have work to do.  

I got an amazing commission.  A piece for a baptism from the GodParents.
I kinda like it when someone is specific with what they want. 
It makes it easier to know what they are looking for, and how to please them.

On the other hand, if they are savvy enough to design, they probably also have a picture
in their mind of what the piece should look like. 

This is a thoughtful Godmother, who researched crosses to find one that would be special and whose symbolism would be special to the child.

St. Hans's cross.

A latin phrase on the back.

The baby's name on the chain extender.

St. Hans's cross.  That one is going to be a challenge!  But challenges are good.  I don't challenge myself as much as I should anymore...

So, I'm off to getting the rest of my studio moved.
Have a good week all! 
I hope to have some new work to share later this week.... :-)


  1. Can't wait to see pictures of your new studio. The commission sounds very challenging...can't wait to see it also.

  2. OH it's sounds lovely. I just relocated studios myself! Cleaning is a great bonus. :)
