Ellie the Etching Press!
My press arrived on Monday, June 20, 2011. I named her Elissa (a shortened form of Elizabeth) and call her "Ellie". She is the little girl (big girl???) I never had. (If Tyler or Derek had been a girl we would have named her Alyssa, so this is PERFECT!) She weighs over 400 lbs!!! We've been working on the studio all week. I'll post more pics asap. Must sleep...
Oh, and there are now 10 kids (including Derek) in the project! 9 boys and 1 girl, ranging in ages from 2-13. They are from 6 different states--Wyoming, Missouri, Tennessee, Florida, Nebraska and Pennsylvania. Pretty exciting! I'll post pictures of the newest kids as soon as I can too. :) Welcome to the project Alec and Paul!

I've been working on the studio all week. I'm desperately trying to get it (somewhat?) put together before the press gets here. According to tracking info (who knows how reliable that is!!!) it will be here on Friday. So Tyler, Roxie (my awesome mother-in-law), and I got to work. The area was serving as a storage unit and was full of boxes, so we had to move everything out first. Then we primed the walls. That was all on Monday. Tuesday we painted the walls two different shades of purple. (I LOVE IT!!!) And today we went to Menards and picked out French Doors and tile for the floor. :) The door is in, but I need to stain it. The tile will hopefully be done next week. I am so excited that everything is finally coming together. I've been saving money for this for 6 or so years now. FINALLY!! My own studio...

Check out the pictures of the other kids who are going to be in the project! They are located in the tab above titled "Other Kids Featured in the Project!" I am so excited to get started. I'm cleaning out my studio and getting it ready to go. I talked to the people at Takach Press today and they are working on my press as we speak. It should be here in 1-2 weeks!!!
