This Artsy Life: Weekend 49 [Catching Up & Settling In]

As most of you know, Mr. F and I find ourselves in a new spot every three to six months and each time requires a bit of effort to get settled into our new adobe.  Add to the upcoming Christmas holiday & all that entails into the mix and we had a recipe for a busy, not so relaxing weekend!

The pared down possessions we travel with means there is no room to carry holiday decor around with us, but we always find a way to do a bit of budget & space friendly decorating ( more on that later this week! ).  Now this little apartment in the snow feels so much more cozy and Christmas-y.

While Mr. F did fun stuff like getting the oil changed & changing over our renter’s insurance ( told you, big fun! ), I was busy doing a live podcast for iCreateFlix ( listen here ) in which I chatted with host Cara Rae about how Artsy Forager came about, the way the artist/gallery relationship is changing, how artists can use social media to promote their work and of course, gushing about how much I love Pinterest.  My interview for the Thriving Artist Summit also went live yesterday!  ( Get access here, only available now through Wednesday 12/11! )


it wasn’t all fun & decorating

But as the darkness was setting in on Sunday evening, the errands had been run and the business taken care of and we were finally able to settle in and relax in our new home.  There may have been a little slow dancing involved..

beer experiments, always a fun way to end the weekend

The holidays can be such a hectic time of year, making time to slow down and enjoy each other helps to bring everything back into perspective, doesn’t it?
