Oh goodness! My trailer came together so well! I couldn’t be happier with the results of a year of labor. I wish desperately I could spend all my days slaving away in this little guy! Maybe one day, that dream can be a reality. I got my new logo on the side and my signature,

And so it begins! Last weekend I spent an afternoon with the first stages of the gutting process. I pulled out quite a bit. All the cabinet doors are off. Everything that was left by the previous owner is now disposed of. I gave the fridge to a friend who has helped me with advise

Just over a year ago, I got this idea to get an old trailer and turn it into an art studio. I was tired of having to look for a house with an extra room just to keep my art supplies & work in. I also knew I didn’t want to pay rent anywhere to
