Five years from now....

It's time for the Handmade Division's monthly Talk About, meaning that many of our members blog about a common topic. This months topic is: Where do you aspire to be in five years?

I like to dream about the future. I enjoy my life and my work very much, but there are times, while working in my space-challenged home studio, that I dream of working in a larger, separate space. I envision purchasing a small building and having a combined studio/storefront. I imagine having a large, organized studio with plenty of room for all of my metalsmithing tools, perhaps a separate space for my friend, Julia, and I to set up our letterpress workshop, and, if my husband chooses to share in the dream with me, a space for his studio/workshop too. I like the idea of having a shop/gallery up front to sell our creations and perhaps the work of some of our artist friends as well. Our dogs would come to work with me each day; they'd both enjoy greeting our customers.

Take a look at other members' blogs and read about their plans for the future:
