OK, it's true... I've gotten incredibly lazy about this posting on this blog and I'm not proud of it, but I'm back on and excited to start posting new projects now that we're all settled into our space! Instagram has sort of taken over the blogosphere, but there's no excuse for not giving my website a little love too... We had an official opening party First Friday June 5th and it was super fun! My buddy Josh d.j.'d, Midori served drinks, and tons of people came out which was wonderful. (Thanks everyone!) I was having so much fun that I managed not to take a single photo. (whoops!) Next time. For those not on our mailing list or instagram, get on it so we can let you know when the next party is! We've got some collaborative projects planned for future First Friday events and we're super excited about it. Stay tuned sweetpeas...

Got the studio dialed in... feels good to be all set up and back to work! Come visit! Currently open by appointment.. hope to have regular shop hours soon.
So long studio. I will miss your close proximity to my house, tree top sunset views and incredible light. However, I will not miss those 3 flights of stairs. Off to bigger and better things! #newbeginnings #811Eburnside
