The most exciting move is that my photography room/ shipping room /etsy pottery overflow room has been moved closer to the stairs and is much more organized, even though it's a bit smaller.
The photo to the right shows some of the overflow pieces (many pieces are in my dining room showroom). The pieces sitting on the table have either expired on Etsy and need to be relisted or for some reason were overlooked at some point and need to be added.
I expect that this room may end up just as messy as the previous room but I actually hope not.
Someday maybe this will all be in my studio so that I do not have to travel from garage through house to the upstairs in order to photograph new pieces, especially those that go to shows or galleries and are not Etsy pieces stored until sold. I also have to carry boxes and shipping materials down to the garage when I have gallery orders with many pieces.

I am not sure if it's related but I have had severe headaches, neck tension and shoulder pain. I have been going to physical therapy and hope the exercises can help.
On November 7th I will go to my last show this year. The Carolina Pottery Festival is a great place to pick up some great North Carolina pottery.
In August my two sons moved out. One across town and the other to college. Next week I will finally get the upstairs new carpet. We painted a few weeks ago. I am most excited about moving and rearranging my Etsy shipping and photo studio. Maybe there will be photos once it's finished.
I will be back in the studio in the morning and working through the weekend. I am working on three orders this week that want their pieces ASAP. My husband is having a guys golf weekend at our cabin so I am at home and don't have anything better to do. Next week I will be dealing with the carpet installers and putting everything in it's place, while the pieces dry for bisque firing.
