Newer than expected

Something about the New Year compels me to rip rooms apart.
I had planned for January 2011 to be the time do so in my studio but my husband pushed things one step further by purchasing a torch and jewelers bench for me for Christmas. (He certainly knows the way to this woman's heart!) So we are now taking the whole room apart, installing new shelving, lighting, a solder station and ventilation.

All I have to show for it right now is a room in disarray (no photo - use your imagination) and a few things I was working on right before we started to make a mess.

I purchased these lovely, lovely tools from Celie Fago's Etsy shop. I really enjoy carving! Celie even provides a companion carving tutorial on her blog.

Perhaps I'll do some before and after or progress photos of the studio.


  1. Those are all gorgeous. So cool!

  2. I had seen her carving tools and her tutorial on her blog a while ago - I really like her tips and comments, so helpful! I guess the carving tools will be next on my list...and wow, what a great present for Christmas! I would love to see your progress shots of the studio, too. Happy new and productive year in it!

  3. Congratulations on an awesome gift! Keep up the great work! Can't wait to see what this gift leads to.....
