In case you were wondering...

This blog exists to encourage all those who have ever wanted--and needed!--a tiny getaway close to home. A workshop, playhouse, garden shed, sanctuary, mini-greenhouse, studio, home office; whatever it is you need, it IS doable, with some sacrifice, imagination, and compromise.

It helps if you're handy, too.

Oooh, a new shed and cabin blog...and PROGRESS at MY shed...


Look what I found!  Yummy...http://thecoopercabin.blogspot.com/2012/10/san-juan-island-cabin-by-david.html

Actually, I'm just bookmarking the whole blog, it's delicious!  http://thecoopercabin.blogspot.com/


Meanwhile, I'm still writing and illustrating art classes and shooting videos at my beloved shed...and thanks to my friend Marc Taro Holmes of Citizen Sketcher (DO check out his blog if you like sketching and watercolor!).  He suggested this multi-arm that will suspend the camera over the table out of my way (HOORAY) so I can shoot better and more comfortable videos!  No more reaching around the tripod.

Now all I have to do is solve the lighting problem...next up!

You can see the seedlings I started in that sunny window at lower left, too...a multi-purpose shed.


The new mini-class is finished  and up on my website, on Ink & Watercolor...and life continues busy but grand!

  1. Can you explain what the set-up is and how it works. Looks ideal.

    1. Hi Katherine! Sure, it's my old tripod, my Canon SX40, which shoots videos, and the new baby, a Vanguard Mult Mount 6--it's adjustable so you can suspend it out over the table, and it will hold two cameras, and perhaps even lights, we haven't gotten that far yet. It's sturdy and quite adjustable. I think it's going to work for us!

      Here's the link, which I also added in the post, above:

  2. I love the boom! I need one of those! I've been wanting to start doing some video's, and I have most of the equipment including a remote that has a time lapse feature. I need the boom, and lighting.

    1. Lighting's next for me, too! I'm going to keep it simple, to start, I think. Since the shed is only 10 x 10', things have to be lightweight and easily broken down and put away. I only video 15-20 times a year or so.
