This is the lovely Violet Studio. At least, this is what it looked like two years ago when I first moved in. It is such a beautiful, inspiring workspace in a building filled with all sorts of creative businesses and people.
The studio doesn't look anything like this anymore though! Two years, three studio-mates, four fashion shows, two dozen tradeshows, a hundred and fifty retail store accounts, Vogue Bambini, Hudson's, Earnshaw's and lots of online exposure later and well, let's just say it's a little different in a "lived in" sort of way! ha!
Recently, I moved a portion of the business home. All of the administrative and office duties moved into my home studio. My husband and I are both web developer's also and I manage all of the books for both businesses. With Cannon still with me everyday and Mia at school just blocks away it became a lot easier to do those tasks at home and to focus on production at the studio.
One of my wonderful studiomates just let me know that they will be moving their business home. It's been great having them in the studio and they will be greatly missed. We are on the hunt for a new studio-mate so if you know anyone looking, let us know! We promise to clean!
We will also be having a HUGE studio clean out sale. We've got desks, file cabinets, chairs, TONS OF FABRIC, trims, chenille bedspreads, and of course, lots of samples and overstock. I'll keep you posted on the date!
