My walk to work just got longer ........... takes me 10 steps ☺️ It’s so much better to have a designated studio space once more , even if it is our old “ home “ @knopfdesigns
Sun is high in the sky and it makes everything more possible . Happy renovations everyone.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.

The shed shell is complete! Now for an inspection, electrical, a step, insulation, flooring, and interior walls! I’m currently picking out an exterior light to go next to the front door, and deciding on a paint color for the door (I’m thinking light pink, coral or lime green). Also considering re-painting the trim bright white. Maybe window boxesexcept I kill all plants except cactus. #studiospace #workshop
At the start of the new year, I purged & reorganized my studio that I’ve been in since 2016. This year has gone by so fast, changes are happening and I’ve outgrown our den so I moved (took over) into our extra room 😂😅. I’m not quite done fixing up my new studio space, as I’m still adding to it ➡️ aka L’atelier de Minnie Igne 👩🏻🎨🧚🏼♀️🧜🏼♀️.. at this rate, I’ll need a whole loft to myself 😆🤷🏻♀️✨ #updatecomingsoon
Do you feel like the year has gone by fast too
Do you purge at the end of the year, beginning of the year, or both
There’s less than 15 weekends of 2019 😳

Settling in nicely!! 😜
I feel like such a spoiled brat to call this my own. How the heck ❤️ It feels amazing to just shut the door to the rest of the world and sit in this bright and airy space, with everything I need at arms length... 😍 so grateful. .
Swipe to see the room without the smug lady... and swipe again for the ‘before’ shot. 🤭 .
You’ll have to wait for pictures of the other end of the room, sorry (I’ve got to milk this content for all its worth haha.)
My favorite part of hand quilting isn’t the textured look when done or the meditative repetitive action of the process. It’s the way that the quilted lines start to drift to and from each other, not perfectly parallel. It’s how the stitch spacing looks even from far away and then up close it is obviously different lengths. It’s the tiny details and distinctions that I love the most and that make each piece completely unique 〰️💗

#tbt to my old Brooklyn studio about 6 or 7 years ago ... I slept in a lofted bed I built above my jewelry bench. My crystals and minerals lived in jars lining the walls of my bedroom. I would have to wipe down a little layer of soot once a week from the metal grinding and torch work ;) Soldering in your sleeping space isn’t advised but that’s what you twenties are for, right
It feels like hardly any time has past, but then again this was a lifetime ago...
