A few days ago I was talking with a former customer of mine and she mentioned she had sold her house. What? I was so surprised. She had talked about selling years ago after we had done several rooms in window treatments but decided to keep it and did quite a bit more to the home and grounds including more window coverings. It is a beautiful place.
It kind of made me sad. When I closed my business, I cleaned up my work area and pretty much walked away. I've been back to the space doing occasional projects for myself and getting rid of stuff but mostly I was ready to be done after 16 years. I didn't grieve the closure of the business at all.
Thinking though of my friend and client not in her lovely home anymore (though I'm sure she will relocate to an equally lovely space) made me a bit sad. She made such perfect fabric selections for herself and I enjoyed helping her make the space functional and beautiful. That part of the business I do miss.
So this art journal page is a bit about that and the journey from being very excited at the start to a slowing down at the end. It uses watercolors, markers and some paper memorabilia.
Hope you enjoy the process video:
Thanks for watching!
