New digs (part 2)











I am VERY excited to announce that on May 9th I took possession of my very own live / work space! This is what it looked like when I first took possession. On May 20th the first batch of my equipment was delivered. It took about six hours for everything to be put together. Now it looks like this! The second batch of equipment gets delivered June 3rd. Then I have to finish painting, put up a wall and fix the bathroom. I hope to be seeing clients in my new space as of June 15th!
