Yesterday while my boyfriend and I were driving home from New Paltz after dropping off some candles and then gorging ourselves on Indian food, I was talking (yet again) about how I would LOVE to have a room that I could dedicate as my studio for making candles. I'm one of those people that is so easily affected by my environment and I also love to be super organized, so working out of our tiny apartment has been a challenge.
Then my boyfriend mentioned that there's an extra room in the main house of the building we rent from.I'm not sure why neither of us ever thought of this before, but it would be perfect for a studio! No one ever uses this extra room, it's practically right outside my front door, and our landlord is so cool about us using the space.
I was so excited about the prospect of having my own workspace that we went and took a look at the room as soon as we got home. Right now it's a mess because it's full of random things people have been storing, but I'm sure with one whirlwind weekend of cleaning and organizing, I can get it in tip-top shape.
Ah, I am so unbelievably psyched! I can't wait to: 1. clean it 2. organize it 3. decorate it and FINALLY 4. work in it. I'm hoping I can get started on it next week, so I'll be sure to keep you all updated! I'll also be researching some inspiration for decorating and will be posting those soon too. Yaaay!
