Remember that shared studio/collective craft and art thing I was talking about last week-ish? Well, it’s taking on a life of it’s own. We’d needed 5 members minimum to pay the rent, and we’ve got 7 so far. This past weekend we had a low-key build-out in the space–swept and mopped, set up some tables and chairs, brought in the all-important coffeepot, and so on–and now we’re up and running, even before the planned first of the month. One of the members has suggested we all throw in on a vendor space in the local holiday Sell Shit To Yuppies Craft Fair, which I think is an awesome idea. Hopefully that’ll give those of us who want in a goal to work toward between now and November. Obviously it’s waaay too early to tell how this will work out long-term, but I’m excited to see people so enthusiastic about trying this out.
The downside to this for you, dear readers, is that I’m spending less time sitting around my house being bored and blogging. I’m going to keep aiming for at least a couple posts a week, but it may be more like 2-3 instead of the 4-5 I’ve been managing. Not that y’all care or anything.
