So we were totally stoked to find out that Design Sponge wanted us to send them pics of our home for their sneak peek section they do every monday... So after days of scrambling and making sure everything looked as tidy as a work/home space can look we took loads of pics and sent them there way. Then this morning I get a email thanking me for the pictures but telling me that my home is not "quite right for the site" OUCH! that really made my husband and I feel like we were a complete pile of shit thrown up against the door. As struggling artists with massive student loans and working hard running both of our businesses, we have stayed in our same apartment for the last 6 years. We don't spend money on fancy furniture as one day when we have saved enough money to buy a house in california, we plan on finding the perfect furniture and found objects that fits that style of house. We are planning on moving this year and upgrading to a house, rental of course, but in the meantime we do our best to live humbly and enjoy ourselves everyday. We are thankful for what we do have so we keep our focus on trying to fulfill our dreams of working for ourselves as artists. So I thought instead of letting these photos go to waste, I would share with you our humble but not design sponge friendly apartment and workspace. I did show our work space before on a previous post, but here it is again along with the rest of our space. Are there any entrepreneurs, artists, or small business owners out there that make sacrifices for the better of your business? Do you still live humbly? However bad we felt from this rejection, we are still happy with where things are in our lives and what is going on... don't forget my post yesterday as there is so much going on with tons of exciting weddings and NEWS to come....
Erin did a project during school where he would print photos directly on the backs of skateboards... this was done in the darkroom using film GASP! :)
our coffee table is a salvaged piece of marble that sits on an old wooden beer crate filled with all our travel photos.
I collect the beer caps I just love all the colors when together.
