A year ago, I moved into a new beautiful studio space with three dear friends. We called it Soul Shine Studio. And it was amazing. You can read the full story and see the full tour here.

The truth is is that this space has been deeply grounding and beautiful this last year. I have loved it so much. We’ve gathered, worked, created, shared, and collaborated. I have counted my lucky stars, daily, because, honestly, it’s been as easy as pie sharing the space with three of my favorite people on the planet.

But as life unfolded in big ways these last few months for all of us, and as our lease has come up for renewal, we made the hard decision to let Soul Shine Studio go.

I KNOW!

For me, several things factored in. As I begin to move my business in new and exciting directions, I really need a large, dedicated and solo space that can accommodate all the moving parts of where I’m at and where I’m going. Also, with the move to our new house, I now have more space to work from home – something that feels more doable now that John is a stay-at-home papa and True is older. I’m craving a more simple work pattern and to be a bit more integrated in everyday home life.

So. I began the slow process of moving my art supplies out of Soul Shine and into my house.  Hello, transition and moves at every turn. I’m a bit stressed out, if I’m being honest! But I’m also just really grateful. As my business has grown over the years, and as I became a mama, my work space has changed and morphed according to what scenario would work best for the time. Now that we’re getting settled into our new home, I’m certain that this will likely be a more permanent move for my creative work space. It won’t be a huge space – a spare bedroom – but it will be nice and cozy and bit of an annex, if you will, to the future larger of home of KRR offices. Stay tuned!

I will miss Soul Shine, but so thankful for the experience and for the deepening of friendships that it birthed with my lovely studio mates 🙂
