And I have expanded into the bed room. My excuse is that there is not enough light in the studio to bead (and there really isn't). I have 3 full shelves of books, 12 shoe boxes of beads (Opuson counted them this morning) and 3 tool cases of findings stacked against the wall at the foot of the bed.
I want to start exploring enameling and PMC, not to mention fused glass. I have yet to use the kiln I won over a year ago - no real place to set up.
I NEED MORE ROOM.
OK, maybe need is a little too strong a word. I would like more room.
I am also looking at retirement in the not to distant future - several years away, but still needs to be planned for.
I do not want to retire in my current house. So, this morning we visited the bank to start the whole process. House hunting will begin in earnest. just have to decide WHERE I want to live. Since I will no longer be tied to a job that limits my living area, the possibilities are wide open. I am finally getting excited about retirement.
Of course, this means that I will probably not be able to pursue any creative outlets once we start the process in earnest. Not only a new home to fix up, but we have major work to do here to get it ready to sell. Busy times ahead.
