Sometimes, when you least expect it, the universe offers opportunities that are too good to pass up.
Like this studio space (that you might recognise), which I was able to rent at a very reasonable price.
And this reclaim some of my home for actually living in,
not storing stuff and creating in!
(Work cabinets $10 each from the Victorian Dollhouses stall at the ACT Miniature and Dollhouse Show. Most other bits of treasure from Wendy Benson's boxes of bits at the same show: total price $5.40. Tools, paint and worktable: model's own...)
