There is something about a person's work area, where they sit and have their creative heads go wild. I am a very calm person when it comes to working, I do love a space that reflects my mood, well the mood I like to be in when I work, therefore I like my space fresh with cool tones.
I was asked by Bec at Yummy Mummies if I would photograph my space so she could do a blog post on me and my area. She will be putting a personal touch to her post... will be more about the craziness behind my "neat" looking space. So watch her space as it is coming soon!
My husband built a plywood box to put my computer on, and primarily to make it more a workspace as our computer is in our kitchen. It also doubles as a box that hides all the cords from the computer, telephone and modem. Once the box was built I had the fun of going to my favourite paper shop, Pulp Creative Paper to fill my space with things I love.
I am obsessed with stationery, I love pretty post-it notes, compared to the loud fluro ones. It is a nice touch to a completed Little Pinwheel order to add a little note, a simple thank you, or little note that tells them which package is which.
One needs to be careful when buying stationery as it can get a little out of control; animal shaped rubber bands will make into your purchase. These I know I will never use, but don't they look cute! Plus they have been fabulous fun for my daughter, who just loves to line them all up. I could buy everything in my favourite paper shop!
I think you can tell a lot from a person's space, it is a place where you spend most of your day, it is a reflection of you as a person and a reflection on how you work. My space is still a work in progress, I need some more personal touches, something to go up the wall or hang from the roof or from the plywood window box. Any inspiration would be appreciated!
