We have MOVED! Over the past month, I've been working like crazy to get everything moved and set up in our new space which is - incredibly - no longer a room in my house!! Since launching, I've been running the clothing line from our spare bedroom, kitchen table, living room floor, and occasionally the couch. While it's been incredibly fun, and I love being able to spend all day with my pups, it was getting pretty wild around here over the past few months. There was simply not enough room for everything, and it was inefficient and frustrating trying to deal with 50 yard bolts of fabric in a 10' x 10' bedroom and a 3' x 4' cutting table.
Needless to say, I am so so excited to be in a dedicated space where I can spread out, make a mess, and come home afterwards. Separating work from home life was is difficult for me - I always felt pulled to be working on something business related, and when I was actually working chores and errands were constantly distracting me.
The one thing I am probably the most giddy about is my glorious new cutting table. As soon as I saw the space, I knew I was going to put the biggest table I could possibly fit in that sucker. Anyone who sews or does any sort of material based craft knows how important a big work surface is, and this new table makes me ohhh so happy. Production is exponentially faster when you have a large cutting surface and don't have to constantly put machines and tools away while working.
I finally finished getting things organized this week, Chris helped me paint three of the walls bright white (we've still got the wall of shelving left to paint) and I bought lots of new plants to liven it up. Without further ado, I'll show you around!
