Maybe finding the perfect studio is the equivalent to finding yourself in a great relationshipâ€¦.the best ones come around when youâ€™re not actively looking!
Iâ€™d always imagined Branch moving out of my home office and into a dedicated space but it felt a little risky â€” and itâ€™s always smart to play it safe and keep overhead low in the first year of starting a new business.
Well, the time has come! The studio of my dreams quite literally fell into my lap with one chance meeting at a neighborhood party. Now, Iâ€™m making plans for Branch to move into its very own space in early November. Itâ€™s a space full of other makers and though our office isnâ€™t quite finished (thatâ€™s the way it currently looks above â€” real talk!), in the next few weeks, itâ€™s going to slowly transform.
I wanted to share this news with you in real time because youâ€™re going to be coming along on this journey with me â€” from sourcing decor to making the space functional on a budget. This is the first real space outside of home Iâ€™ve ever had and it feels like a necessary big step forward after celebrating Branchâ€™s one year anniversary a few weeks ago.
Iâ€™ve always said that when things are going good, you can never get too comfortable â€” itâ€™s time to shake things up a bit. In the new year, there will be a lot more changes happening with Branch but I donâ€™t want to get ahead of myself. Letâ€™s get the space decorated first. 😉
