I am beyond excited to announce I purchased a camper to replace the van. The fact that it's a 1976 Boler is the most exciting part! I've always loved these little 'eggs', as they are lovingly nicknamed, and can hardly believe I own one.
After a couple sleepless nights and some math I decided to nab it. You may wonder how the hell I can afford to buy a camper. The answer is I can't, but sometimes you just have to jump in head first. I also don't have a car to pull it yet and have no idea how I will pay for one but I have faith once again things will come together if I just keep trudging along. It may just take longer for me to get back on the road but I feel it’s worth it in order to do it the way I want. I found it difficult to make work while traveling in the van and have been dreaming about having a studio space so I can truly focus on bartering my art, this time with artists.
I’m a girl who likes to get down to business right away so as soon as the trailer was in my possession I began to tear it down. There are a lot of things I need to do to it but I love envisioning something and then working to make it happen. Luckily I have family members who have the tools and the know-how to help me along. I want to do the whole thing myself and my brother-in-law is happy to guide me and teach me, while letting me go at ‘er. Thank heavens for family and friends!
I will be scrubbing, painting, making new cupboards, curtains, and deciding how to configure the closet. Eventually the outside will get sand-blasted and repainted as well; color to be decided. Here is the first look at what I’ve done.
