Back in the studio again!

I just sent off a custom order last week. I am now trying to re-organize & re-arrange. The lovely, wonderful, talented Mr. B built me a 9-foot wall of floor-to-ceiling shelving and a separate 5-foot wall of floor-to-ceiling shelving and I am spending a great deal of time doing 2 things:
1. standing and admiring my shelving
2. spinning in a circle with my arms out, a la Maria from The Sound of Music, singing "the studio is alive with the help of shelving"
I am almost positive that no one has seen me do the second one, with the exception of Jacko--my black cat & studio companion. I am working 3 days this week at the Tattoo Shop. Today I tattooed some lyrics onto a girls ribcage. She sat quite well, but I didnt care for the font she picked. It was too flourishy & I dont think it will age well.
And now it is time for jammie pants and BBC programming.

Whadda know?

It's been a month since I talked to you last. I have been working, and ignoring the internets. Sorry, internets! All that work has paid off, though. I am now allowed to take walk-ins at the shop--which puts me that much closer to being a money-making tattooist. Niiiiice.
Also, I have been the recipient of 3 new soldering irons, so I can get back to the jewelry making. And as winter descends I will undoubtedly be seeking refuge in my cozy studio.
Enjoy the photo below of a celtic cross I finished last week.
Cheers, loves!
