All of a sudden, my need to hibernate is gone. Over the past few months, I've struggled creatively to settle into our new space. My studio has undergone a complete transformation, both good and bad, and I've desperately missed the inspiration and support of my creative community in Bend.
And then a fresh breeze blew in, a boost of energy from the universe and the people I love. My creative support team in Bend went out of their way to keep me close, just at the moment when I felt like I should step away. I reached out to an old mentor and was delighted to hear the enthusiasm in his voice when he heard me on the phone. One of my closest friends opened a stunningly beautiful brick-and-mortar space and told me that he couldn't have done it without my help. My husband asked me what I needed to build my business to the next level and when hearing my answer, told me to go for it, no questions asked. I stumbled into an Instagram rabbit-hole and found four amazing Michigan stores that fit my brand and aesthetic. I am renewed.
Stepping out into a new creative community and searching for business opportunities in a new state is a roller coaster of excitement and exhaustion, but I'm thrilled to be where I am. With my new equiptment, I'm creating work that feels like coming home to the things I've always loved.
