Oh so quiet....

My workshop being insulated - looks a bit like a space ship at the moment!

Its been a quiet little bloggy here for the last week hasn't it?

We returned from hols on Monday to to a veritable mountain of laundry and unpacking AND the need to empty out my whole studio ready for the big insulation project. Oh, AND we have had guests staying. I guess you might understand the radio silence now?

The insulation project is now well underway and I have been so lucky that is hasn't rained because the entire contents of my studio is on the lawn! Our dear friends, Julie and Laci, have been working soooo hard on insulating my workspace so that it is all warm and toasty ready for winter (did I ever mention that during the big cold snap we had in February, I made a mosaic and when I went to grout it ALL the tiles fell off. Baffled, I soon realised that -10 celcius and adhesives are not the best of friends).

I just want to say a hello and wave to the other Fishies from the fishbowl popping in to say hello. I have been a little frustrated not to have dived in too much yet with getting to know you all and keeping up with all the comments but am really hoping that the chaos here calms down in the next week - and that I get the chance to visit your blogs and say hello :)



  • That's great that you are getting your studio insulated, should be much more comfortable now. Hope it goes quickly for you.

  • Thank you Jennifer. Hopefully the floor is going in today. I have to think hard about the layout once the walls and floor are in, because in addition to it being my work space, I run mosaic workshop and also have creative evenings with other local mums in there. So I want to have a layout that works for all those purposes and for my kids to join in too! Thanks for popping in.

  • Hello! It was indeed super cold here last winter so I hope your studio is toasty this winter.

  • Hee hee. I shall have to wear Isabella's tiara when I mosaic! (I wonder if her wand will work some extra magic when I need it?)

  • hi concetta, i'm here from the fishbowl. your studio looks so intriguing! would you consider a photograph from the outside? is it a caravan? that's what it looks like. and what a wonderful idea for a studio a caravan would be :)

  • Hello Lisa.
    Wouldn't a caravan be so romantic! It's actually a large shed. Second coat of paint and shelves going up today! I think it will be ready for me to occupy tomorrow - so exciting. I will post a photo of the outside. Thanks for stopping by.
