In The Middle

I am in the middle of something drastic here.  I’m sure the Feminists of the world would tell me I’m being ridiculous.  And the Hopeless Romantics might even tell me I’m too hopeless.

In short, I have relocated my entire life to be with the man I love.  Luckily, my business is rather portable.  It may have taken a few car loads (thank goodness we didn’t travel THAT far!) and my crafts, although slightly more organized, are as big a mess as ever, but we’re doing it.  We have spent the past month staying wtih friends in Beach Park, Illinois (thank you Brian and Rose!) which is located nearly exactly halfway between where we were and where we are going (there has to be something poetic in this situation).  We have been searching for a suitable apartment (with very strict creative demands!) and I have been searching for a part time “day” job.  This move has caused a nearly insurmountable level of stress between the significant other and myself, I have not seen my daughter for over a week, and I have several shows coming up back to back and only a 3 bedroom trailer shared with another family in which to work.  (The first of these shows begins this Saturday.) 

Luckily, we found the most beautiful rehab Victorian flat with 3 bedrooms, a marvelous kitchen, a parlor (how fancy!) and a beautiful common room with a coal fireplace (not working, but still aesthetically pleasing).  However, the application process caused a glitch in our plans, as someone finally felt open enough to discuss his true feelings for me…..and well, it wasn’t a happy night.  But I have faith, even if it is somewhat visually challenged, that this will work out.  (And if nothing else, I have my own income a stubborn will). 

The most exciting part of this, (we go in to sign the lease next week) is that there is an attic, painted dusty baby blue, with natural light and crazy angles, that we have to ourselves, and I can’t wait to create a studio for myself.  A studio, and maybe a library, and host wonderful parties.

I will take photographs of the transformation, I can promise you that.  And, dear readers, should you have any suggestions on what inspires you, invigorates you, or calms you, I would love to hear them!!

Check back in tomorrow and I will give you more of an update on the upcoming shows, how to get there, and a little more about myself and my business, to which this blog is dedicated.

For now, I will be signing off.  Have a wonderful day!
