I get to set up my studio in there this weekend!! We already have some Ikea desks collapsed in one of our closets so we'll just pull one of those back out for me. I will be painting a lot more when I actually have a place to paint where I don't have to re-clean the entire room when I'm done because it's the living room! So excited about that! So tomorrow, before going to our California party (Yes, Ann, I will feel better because I will not miss it!) to celebrate our family's love of all things California (specifically Laguna Beach, Knott's Berry Farm chicken, and Disneyland) we're going to the Apple Store because I bought Jeremy a new iPod touch last week and then it promptly became "unresponsive"--luckily it was after it was registered and warrantied so they'll just swap it for us. And THEN, we're going to Ikea to get me a good "art" chair and some cabinetry for my art supplies because I want my closet back. Very excited about this! Kind of wondering how we'll get cabinetry into our new Mini, though. It's pretty small. Roomy, but small.
I have so many ideas for things but haven't had the motivation to pull everything out, paint on the floor, and put everything away again. I need a more permanent place. This will be a good weekend.
Now, here's my ACEO of the Day! Remember, all proceeds go to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation! The background is shiny gold--doesn't translate well in photos.
Oh! And I signed up to be a verified artisan at ArtFire. Haven't uploaded anything, but I have the coolest URL ever - http://artsafire.artfire.com. How perfect is that? Will be uploading things soon. Despite ArtFire having less hits than Etsy, it's still really cheap with that "$7 for life" deal and according to Google Analytics for my grandfather's artfire shop (http://artbyjay.artfire.com), it has a much lower bounce rate and longer browsing time than Etsy usually has. The smallness of ArtFire at this point is not too shabby.
