Empty Walls

It's more than the walls, it's rooms full of empty! On the other hand, I am rapidly filling up my new 3,000 sq ft space. I bought a used workstation unit to create an office space for my computer, all my external hard drives and all my printers. That was a grand plan until I discovered that there are no electrical outlets on that wall. The electrician is coming today, and until then I've kept my office at home. It's just as well since I am in the middle of a huge print job. 2871 pcs to be exact. It's room art for the resort project in central Texas that I've been working on for almost a year. This is the first stage. Hopefully, with the economy taking it's toll everywhere, they won't cancel any of the artwork in the public spaces. That will be next year, though, and I'm only concerning myself with right now. At least my rent (!) is paid until the first of the year. I won't be doing any marketing during this time, using it instead to get organized and make a plan for 2009.

I'm distracted and anxious, and am rattling around in my house that suddenly has become much bigger. I can't paint at home because I've moved ALL my supplies. I can't print at work because all that is still at home. My house is a wreck from moving, and my new space is a wreck of unpacked boxes. AAACK!!

Yes, I'm taking photos, but just remembered I lent my card reader to my neighbor -- who hasn't returned it.

Yikes. That is a lot of nervous energy. I hope the dust settles soon so you can get back to work!

Happy Thanksgiving,
Henry

I can certainly empathize, Robin. I didn't move to 3000 sq ft but know the feeling of all the packing and unpacking and nothing organized. ALSO problems with electrical hook-ups, etc.

It's gonna be a great space and I can't wait to see it soon.

I'm sure there's light at the end of the tunnel, but I can't even find the tunnel right now!

Wish I lived closer, I'd come and help!

Happy Thanksgiving though, hope you get a day off.
