New Space Makes a Splash

This summer I spent a lot of time in my studio getting artwork ready for the Illustrators Showcase at the SCBWI Summer Conference. I like spending time in my studio since it is the most productive place for me to work.

Before Christmas, my husband and I decided to remodel the laundry room. Since my office is adjacent to it, it would get a facelift, too. For nearly five months, I worked in the corner of the living room with supplies scattered about the house.

You see, the remodel was supposed to take only a couple of weekends, but, if you have ever been under construction, you know that is usually not the case. I didn’t gripe about the time it took, though, because I knew in the end it would be perfect for me and I would love it.

Thanks to my husband and other workers, the laundry room functions well, and my studio is beautiful. New paint and floors have transformed my little office into a beautiful new space. It still has a freshness about it that is so nice to come to every morning.

I hope you had a wonderful summer. And, wherever you found yourself working, I hope it, too, was a pleasant and productive place.
