Gameroom/Office Done!

Ok, here are the after pictures. Can you believe it? It feels good to have it done. Yes, I was very very sore as I did this all in about 20 hours straight. Now all that awaits is the basement studio. The clay side is actually in pretty good shape but the other side is a mess. When I get going on that project I will be sure to keep you updated with pictures. I hope to be getting started on my ceramics at the same time.










I am getting there anyways! I hope you all like :)

What I have been up to this week!

I haven't posted in awhile. This is what I have been working on. A makeover and complete reorganization of my gameroom/office. It had to be done first because I could not actually get any ebay done with the space so cluttered. Therefore no artwork time either :( I bought some smaller pieces of furniture that will fit better in the small room. My dad helped me get the huge corner desk and sleeper sofa out! (They were soooo heavy) Thanks Dad! Joe (the boyfriend) spent Valentine's day helping me put together the new shelves and moving things around, Thanks Joe! I pretty much got the whole thing done in 1 day (20 hours of almost nonstop working for me) with the help. Not bad for a weekend, eh? So, here are the before pictures of this crazy mess. Yeah, I know, you would think I just moved in but we have lived here for 4 years! This is mostly a result of too big furniture and too much ebay to sell in one small space. There really isn't any room to even walk around. I mean I almost died getting these pictures for you! So, please enjoy! The after pictures are coming soon! Then, hopefully back to some art related posts and pictures! :)

More pictures....Finally!

Finally got some more pictures to post for you. These are all pieces that my mom has received for various holiday gifts. I would consider these my best pieces from my high school years. Hope you enjoy! More to come soon as my studio is pretty much finished now. Just need to give it a quick cleanup and it is done. Time to start some new work!
Oh yeah, got some new glazes in the mail yesterday! Pictures of those coming soon too :) I need to make little clay tags for all my glazes. It helps when choosing colors for different pieces. I like to carve one side with the name and number of the glaze and if it is lead free and/or dinnerware safe and then paint some glaze on the other side (half textured, half smooth) and fire it, so I can have a visual of how the piece I am working on might look when fired with that glaze. It will be my first project in my kiln and won't be too overwhelming if it doesn't come out. Having a beautiful pot blow up on my first firing would be just a little discouraging, lol!
