So many good things happening over the last couple days! Thursday morning started a bit rough. I went to sleep late and was up for 4 h ours in the middle of the night after shooting up from bed due to a kiln-related nightmare. Then, at 7, I had to get up for the day. I couldn't sleep in because the wheels were scheduled for delivery between 9:00 and 17:00. Just before I left for the studio, I realized that the faktura had our home address (not the studio address) as the delivery address. Kreatima wasn't open yet so I had to call the main Panduro corporate number and send an email to the store. The person I talked to on the phone said they better just take the wheels back to the store and deliver them to the correct address on another day. No freaking way! COME ON! The addresses are on the same street! My nervous little heart cannot handle any delays! Eventually the store got back to me and told me that shipping and fakturas are handled by two different companies and that the faktura company got the address wrong but the shipping company had it right :)! I spent my time waiting for the wheels unloading and loading the kiln, testing the sealant we ordered for the studio floors, scrubbing the gunk off the walls, filling the million holes the previous tenant had made in the walls (why so many and so big?). This made a huge difference for me psychologically when looking at the space :) After being very stressed over the space for months, I started to have feelings of hope and optimism! The rental company's electricians came at noon to assess the studios for combining their electrical systems and I convinced them to do additional electrical work while they're at it :) (for example, more outlets in the new space!). I mentioned the opening in the wall that was promised to me and they said they'd contact the guy who would be in charge of that to make sure he was aware of the project. Then the wheels arrived at 13:00! And this time the guy from the shipping company was sweet and helpful and brought the wheels around to the back door. The guy last year refused to do anything but unload them from the truck. At 13:15, the electricians called to tell me the wall would be cut on the 28th and the electrical work would be done on March 1! While that was happening, Adam showed up unexpectedly with lunch and was able to help me cary the wheels in. Ewwww, ya'll! Ewww again! Clean window and walls on the left. Filth on the right. So many damn holes! What is the deely yo?! The walls are much improve with those holes filled! Weeeeeeeee! It's coming together y'all!

Things are moving along! 1. We got the contract yesterday... with different dates than had been discussed... of course. Today we were able to talk to a different person at the rental company! She is very responsive and reasonable, so they are supposed to be updating the contract now :) 2. The wheels arrived in Stockholm today!!! They will be delivered on Thursday some time between 9:00 and 17:00. They won't be more specific that that. LOL. So I'll be there ALL DAY! But the current tenant will have his things out of the front room on Tuesday, so this will be a great time for me to do some serious cleaning and maybe fill some of the MANY holes in the wall. Here are some photos from when the first 3 wheels arrived October 2020! The guy just left them here on the street and I had to drag them into the studio myself. They are soooo heavy but I proudly managed! Adam came after work to document their assembly! I'm sure they will leave them in the same spot again... this time I will have to drag them much farther!

I have been fantasizing about having vintage wood and glass sliding doors in the new studio. A lot of the rental apartments around here had them originally, but many have been removed. So I went to ask the Primula maintenance guys if they have some in storage...they were not receptive to this, unfortunately. But while we were talking to them, we got an interesting bit of info. The floor levels of the two studios are different! I know the ceiling heights are different but I figured that's where the difference was... in the ceiling height not the floor. So I tried a couple different ways to calculate the difference. Two methods gave me the result of 33 cm. Two others gave me 26 and 40 respectively. So this will be strange and interesting to see when they start to take down the wall! And good news! I later saw the perfect doors on Blocket! They didn't respond to my inquiry but they did to Adams and my brother-in-law will go pick them up tonight! They are going to let this beautiful light pass though the new studio and into the old. They also have textured glass so they will provide privacy as well. And finally, I started taking down the ceiling tiles. I couldn't help myself! The raw ceiling is kind of cool... but maybe painting it would make the space brighter. We will have to assess. Does anyone happen to have a power washer and/or a wet vac? I think this place needs a serious clean (that will be hard to achieve by hand) before any painting can occur! After class you all can take a peak with me...if you each promise to help me cary some of these ceiling tiles. They are surprisingly heavy!

Hi! I got the keys to The Rabbit Hole today! The link below is a video of the main room! There is also a "kitchen" and bathroom. Tobias promises the main room will be cleared out by February 15th. He may have some things in the kitchen for awhile after that :o/. The space is rough! The first thing I want to do is take down that terrible ceiling! Then clean the floors! And patch the holes.... so much to do! In other big news, the new pottery wheels were ordered today! They will arrive at Kreatima on the 18th and will be delivered to the studio the week of the 21st! WIX won't let me post a video in the forum, so try this link! Let me know if it doesn't work! https://video.wixstatic.com/video/e9855d_e7027108553143e1b47ab4671ec9761b/1080p/mp4/file.mp4

Hi all! Some have proposed creating a Facebook group for studio communication. We may end up there, but I try to be off of FB as much as possible and Adam pointed out that there is forum functionality on WIX. We could check it out to see if it might be useful (and hopefully not painful) for us down the rabbit hole. ALSOOOOOO! I've just been to the new space and I'd love to share some photos/videos with you! So I'm going to mess around here and see if can figure out how to WIX's forum functionality!
Umm... Is this thing on? Testing 1, 2, 3. Testing 1, 2, 3 content media
