Soo...I Really Haven't Disappeared...

Red Bow Studio Postcard Centered
....I'm starting a business!  I have been dropping hints for awhile that I want to open up a studio/inspirational destination, and that is where I have been.  Let me tell you, there are so many DETAILs involved in the organization of a business, and it's even tougher when there is NO FUNDING for a start-up business anywhere.  You have to be in business for a year before any nonprofit funders will get involved and 3 years before a bank will even look your way to lend.  (Opening a bank account wasn't difficult of course, they will take your money anytime).  As you may have guessed it is called Red Bow Studio and is located in Sea Cliff New York.  I will post more pictures, but this is the signage. So far I have painted the space and location, added a freestanding wall, bought furniture, ordered art supplies, hooked up phone service, found a credit card provider, opened a bank account, designed a logo and stationary....wow, it seems so simple when I put it in one sentence...I'm off to paint the furniture, but I will give updates soon!
