This is my studio, which is officially called the Journey and lovingly called the She-Shed, by my friend Caridad, my favorite Auntie calls it the Doll House, but I call it the Shed. Everyone that comes into the Shed says that name does not represent my space, but when I designed and had this place of yumminess built, by Osbourne Spence of Spence Maintenance, from the ground up, it was called a craft shed, so Shed is still on my brain, although I am beginning to say Studio quite a bit more. There may be hope for me after all.
My wonderful handyman and electrician extraordinaire, Humphrey (Wilfred Robinson) did my electrical work and lighting. The electrical work is amazing, I have plugs in concrete floors! Cool...right?
By the way, the crew from Spence Maintenance is one of the most professional, organized group of guys I have ever seen. All the horror stories of contractors never met this crew. They would show up about 8:30am and have breakfast, laughing a lot together. 9am, they were working until lunch and back at it an hour later until 5-6pm every week day until the Shed was up.
Although the Shed was finished in June of 2015, I still take a deep breath when I come in every morning...its still a God-filled moment for me....everyday! Thank you God for my amazing space!
This amazing space is where all the magic happens. I am here everyday I am able to be here, and I create every opportunity I am able to create. This is truly my happy place. When you suffer from an autoimmune disease, mine happens to be Sarcoidosis, everyday is not always a good day. So I have created, with the help of an amazing Husband, loving brother, a wonderful Mom & Dad and a select few of my awesome famfriends, a happy place built with love.
