Starting from scratch!

Well! I have missed you guys SO much! I'm guessing you're all wondering what I've been up to? I'll fill you in....
The last time I checked in I told you guys that I was trying to rent some studio space at a local art shop here in town. Well.... that didn't work out so well. It was a pretty cool place to hang out, but not to work. So sadly.... I had to leave. I was spending more time helping out around the shop than I was working on miniatures! In fact.... I didn't make a single miniature while I was there. :/ (And there were also some in-shop dramas going on, but we'll leave those out). But not to worry! It was a great learning experience and I met a TON of great new people! I wish all the best to the shop!
As for little ole' me... I brought ALL of my supplies and materials back home. I put everything in the hall and then I did some SERIOUS cleaning. I basically took everything that was left in my room out and started from the floor up! Here is how my room looked once it was clean! :D Haha!

This image makes the space look a little smaller than what it actually is, but nevertheless this is all the room I need to work :)
I actually took the picture above yesterday morning. I worked on my room all day and I finally got it together! ..... Kindof. Haha! I actually have a few more things to put back into place and I will show you guys what it looks like with everything back in place.
As far as the etsy goes... I am still working on it! I am still trying to get those Tweets finished up and I have some orders to send off. A lot has happened with the last few weeks and I am exhausted. But I do have some really fun projects lined up and I have some supplies gather for more work on the model house!  :D I still need a name for it by the way!
I did find a few lost items! So I listed them in the shop and you can take a looksie HERE. I have a few more older things that never got listed that I will put up soon.
Thanks for sticking with me, guys! With school and trying to make that local store work out and doing regular stuff... it just seems like there isn't enought hours in the day! I really do hope to get back to my etsy soon.
Talk to you soon!


  1. Glad to see you back on the scene Blake! Life is like that what seems like it was not a success always brings us closer to where we want to be. Glad you met some cool people!

    1. Glad to be back! And I agree! Things at the shop didn't work out, but I wish the best for them and will surely be doing my best to continue to grow and get better at what I do! Thanks for stopping by! :D

  2. Keep doing what you need to do..we will wait for you to come back to blogland when you have time. Remember minis' should be pressure. Still hoping to trade but I will wait till you have some more downtime..Take care of you my friend!! BIG BIG hugs!

    1. Big hugs to you! I am happy to finally be able to get back to work and I haven't forgotten about our trade! I will message you soon! XO
