The Crazy Month of January!

Well, this month has been incredibly crazy.  I've completed three cubimal pieces for the game Glitch, the third of which was my first commission.  (YAY!)

My first commission!!
I opened an Etsy store and I actually rented a studio:

And I've been working hard to get it to a work- and client-friendly space:
This is what you see when you walk in my door.  Note the finished works in the window.

My desk space from a different angle.

A comfy couch to sit on.  The leather is worn, so I'm planning on recovering the couch.

For my space, I've designed a sign:

But the Tenant Handbook calls for this sign to be 22 inches by 28 inches.  My template is 21 by 27 to account for the wood frame I intend to put around it, and well.... that's a bit HUGE, to say the least:
For scale, here is the pattern made to size (minus the width of the frame) hanging over my cutting station.

I've requested more information and perhaps an allowance for a smaller sign - especially since it will hang right in front of an emergency exit:
That's my door on the left and I'm supposed to hang my sign on that wooden thing.
It won't block the emergency exit AT ALL.  O.o

Also this month, I scored my second commission, a Pikachu worthy of his own blog entry, and went on vacation in Costa Rica where I found the world's cutest frog, which will become the subject of at least one more piece, if not more:

Draft Pattern 2

All in all, it's been a crazy month and it's not finished, yet!  I'm having a blast designing more patterns, and I'm looking forward to my future in stained glass.
