So, recently I have been thinking so much about how great it would be to own a little shop. I could have my studio in the shop and spend the day working on fun projects. It would honestly be my ideal job. I obviously won't do this anytime this year, but I think I might seriously consider it, if I do well on Etsy and everything. My imaginary shop is filled with handmade and upcycled things. There would be items as simple and small as felt flower pins and soaps, to things as large and labored as refinished cabinets and reupholstered chairs. My shop would also have a bakery corner, where I would sell dinosaur cookies in frostings of every color, and cupcakes galore. It would most definitely have a store cat roaming around. And at night I would offer classes, maybe not so much focused on instruction and technique, but we would have a tie dye night, jewelry making night, slipper knitting night, etc... there would be wine, cheese, strawberries, music, and a little bit of gossip. I would also have a plant wall, and a vintage shoes for sale, dangling from the rungs of old worn out ladders lining a wall. Hmmm.... one of these days. Until then, I'll keep dreaming. Here are some inspirational shop images.
