I am experiencing the lull after the storm. A wonderful and energetic weekend at WIA in Winston-Salem – seeing a lot of friends and meeting new ones. And now I’m trying to settle in again. It’s sad that I probably won’t see many of these people again until next WIA.
I drove the 5 hour trip back home to Charleston, SC yesterday afternoon, and was feeling so worn out by the time I got home that I didn’t even unpack my car until this morning. I brought a LOT of extra things with me – like DVDs and resin castings, in hopes of selling them at the show. It didn’t turn out that way. I only sold a handful, but was really focusing on getting the word out for my online school – which I believe was a success. When I packed up after the show, I only had one small, empty box that I could leave. My poor KIA felt abused. And I barely had room for my suitcase. I think it’s time for an SUV or truck.
Here is a photo of my shop before unloading my car (nice and tidy – sort of). This is the “industrial” part of my shop – a great old General lathe that my husband brought down from Canada.
Here is a photo of my shop after unloading the car. A very daunting task. Looks like I won’t be doing much carving for a while…
