So how is this possible?

Well there is a back story and I won't bore you with the intimate details but I did get the house.  Just not for the initial purpose of gallery and studio.  My mother will live in it instead.

Now here is the rub.

I have to renovate, remodel, and rebuild all of it.  Yes, G-D makes it to rain on the just and the unjust and where I sit in that is of little concern.

The reason for all this lovely destruction and construction?  One word.  Termites.  Yes, the ravenous little critters made a meal of the place in times past and the patch jobs were bandaids and cosmetics.  I now get to deal with them.

*le sigh*

Getting repair parts in the form of wood studs, nails, insulation (there was *NONE), house wrap, caulking, construction adhesive, sheathing, drywall, tape, mud, and a framing gun are... Pricy.  And this doesn't cover windows, floors (yes, they ate that, too), subflooring (if the floor got nommed, so did everything else), joists, baseplates, the list keeps going and going and going.  {repeat sigh here}

So it looks like I have to sell stuff.  The reads as stuff I have made that is sitting at *my* house and needs to find a good home.  Here's the deal.  I got quite a few items in the form of teeshirts (MoonSurfer), linoprints, art cards, and originals.  I have quite a few crochet hooks, pins and sticks in a variety of material as well.

If you are interested in buying art, note me.  If you are interested in buying a crochet hook, pin, or hair stick, not me.  If you are interested in commissioning me for a OOAK item, note me.

That's about all I can say for right now.
