Not being able to create for extended periods of time is frustrating. I get grumpy if I go beyond a week without customizing. Now imagine going without customizing for nearly two months. That's what happened to me at the end of August when we decided to embark on some life adventures.
I momentarily packed away my ponies not only to focus on planning a fall wedding, but also to purchase a house in the same month! Madness, I tell ya. But a good kind of crazy. When we returned from our honey moon (a trip where I became pretty ill), we began packing our rental and signed on our first home purchase. We moved into the country (slightly) and onto a property with potential for real horse ownership in the future.
My favorite part of the new house was the bedroom that would become my studio. Not only was it a bit bigger with an extra window, but it was painted in the same dark blue that is in my stable logo and the same shade I would have painted myself. Eeeep! Also, I love the 70's ledges that make for great display of ponies and extra space for art supplies.
I'm looking forward to many days of customizing, sipping my coffee while watching our dogs play in the huge backyard and our neighbor's horses prance within view too. I couldn't have asked for a more inspiring workplace.
