Last weekend Jim and I drove by a property that really spoke to us. Although we are not currently in a position to make an immediate purchase, the estate made such an impression, we wanted to know more. Perhaps just seeing the place would help us to visualize our needs as makers and start the process of building our lives together. I toured the home yesterday and I'm so glad I did. Now it feels like we are moving toward a very real and possible dream. We are now in the depths of "How do we make something like this happen?" It can feel overwhelming when you have such a solid and strong vision and you *know* you can make something great, but the funding just isn't there. It's a tumultuous path of doing what we love and feeling confident that our hard work will pay off. Sleeves rolled up, hands getting dirty. It's a good life we have.
A few weeks back I updated the Johnson Public House walls with a few new woodland creatures that I'm really happy about! If you are in the Madison area, please stop in for some good eats and drinks. I'm not feeling very ready for the holiday season, but I *did* manage to restock the small prints up at the shop.
I also started an instagram account @nataliewrighthome // Please follow me if you haven't already! Pics of my work and my world and a few tbt for good measure.
Also, check out Jim's updated website/ www.lumberingbehemoth.com and follow his instagram under the same name! He might be just the maker you are looking for!!
