We are juggling quite a few projects, events, clients, Emily’s book, and other fun stuff for you here on the blog and this week our motto was “Conquer and Divide”. Emily returned back from shooting the book up in Portland, and Ginny and I were therefore back working in the office and the three of us had plenty of work to keep us busy.
The week started off weird. Have you ever gotten in cab knowing where the end destination is and trusting that the cab driver is going to get you from point A to point B in a quick and safe fashion, but then as you get further and further into the route you realize that your cab driver is either A. completely lost, B. trying to rack up the meter to make an extra buck, or C. a psycho murderer?
Well we had a bit of that feeling this week as Emily casually asked us to regroup at a fun lunch together now that she was back in town. We got into the car and we were off and I soon noticed that we were headed nowhere near the usual lunch spots. I thought that maybe Emily had just gotten lost or taken a wrong turn as we all seem to do here in LA, but then when she pulled down a street that I had never been down in an area I had never driven through I thought… my boss is either totally lost and I should pull out my phone – or – i might be getting the axe (literally). She took Ginny and I around the back of a building, through a gate, through a back door, and into a large studio space and said, “SURPRISE! Its our new studio space”. Both Ginny and I looked at her in disbelief. We both countered back with “No, Way?!?” But, she wasn’t lying. This new beautiful space with perfectly lit rooms and 11 foot ceilings was now the new home of EH Design. We all jumped up and down for joy, threw a few high fives and were beyond elated.
Once we had checked out the new space, we finally made our way to lunch and began planning out the studio space. We have lots of ideas flowing folks and be sure to stay tuned with what we have in store. You can read more about the changes we have made thus far HERE.
Now that we had our new fancy space, we were ready to get packed up and schlep it all from our old studio space which was at Emily’s house and bring it to the new space just a few miles down the road. So our Tuesday was spent, organizing, packing, moving, and getting everything into the new studio space.
We tried our best at organized chaos. Don’t worry this is not what the Studio looked like on a daily basis. This is after our first sort of what goes to the new studio, what stays, what gets tossed, and what gets hoarded for a garage sale.
Please observe our wonderful packing skills. Shockingly nothing arrived broken. This is 2 of the 4 cars/moving truck that was filled to the brim.
And then we celebrated our first night in the new space together.
