Moved my studio
I started my business working at the couch with a tv tray. The more my business grew the harder it was to be efficient.
So, last November I found a space to work out of. It was a storage room inside another business. My productivity went up. I could complete projects in a few hours that took days at home.
After the Presidential election the tension in the building has grown. To be polite and leave out details I will just say I felt like I was in a Rush Limbaugh episode. I listened politely and would say I must get to work and make a fast exit.
Well, sad to say, but being respectful of others opinions but not outwardly agreeing seemed to make me THE enemy. I was being spoken to rudely. So, today while the building was empty I packed up my studio and brought it home.
I do have concerns about the division that has been occurring in this country. I was surprised it touched my life here in liberal Missoula. These people were my friends. I have friends from many faiths or no faith. I have friends from a variety of political parties or no party. Like Rodney King says "Can we all get along?"
I have everything squished in a 4 by 6 space. Tomorrow I will do some creating in my own lovely, peaceful environment. When I step out for a break instead of other humans to greet I will have the deer, squirrels and my sweet kitty, Luna.
I loved having a studio and I truly believe that closing a negative door will allow another door to open. I became self employed so that I could enjoy my work. As Martha Stewart says "This is a good thing"!
