When we first bought our home 6 years ago I was overjoyed to discover that there were in fact TWO sheds in the back yard. A his and hers set of rusty shelters. I quickly claimed the little blue one as my own and from the blue shed was born. Although too dark and spidery to work in, it was a place to store and organise all my crafty bits. As many crafts people can appreciate, I have spent years taking over every surface of the house in search of a place to lay my fabric and tools. We have dined amongst beads and wire, attempted homework on surfaces covered in glue and hung laundry in a sea of ceramic shards (not recommended).
The time came to replace my blue shed with a little place suitable for my studio and a place for visitors. This was too exciting for words. My own place. Once the ball was rolling and the concrete slab was laid I swore never again to work at the dining room table. These things of course take longer than you plan, life started taking a slightly different course and a painful creative hiatus ensued...
The (not so) blue shed has been in action for a little while now. It is still a work in progress but my new little place has seen many visitors and the start of some new beginnings.
Although I'm still trying to find my creative groove again I have a pretty fabulous place to do it in. I am one lucky girl.
