Let’s be honest. Cleaning my desk was not exactly on my fun list of things to do this weekend. I seem to create a lot of piles. My work space is not big, which creates a lot of shuffling and moving of papers and supplies.
This weekend I finally tackled my desk, took everything off and even painted it white.
Let’s just say one project lead to another.
This past summer my friend Katie sent me home with a vintage baby bed spring after visiting her farm. I couldn’t wait to hang it up and this weekend I finally did. Using a few nails I hung it above my desk attaching all my favorite papers and pictures.
Yesterday Lesley announced that her new makers gonna make print was available in her shop as a desktop download . All proceeds are being donated to help a family with their adoption costs. I just love turning my computer on to this. Makes me want to dance around my living room with a paint brush. Just kidding.
Using large paper sheets in text weight that I had left over from workshops, I folded a random assortment of paper fans to hang in the corner of the bed frame. I also mixed in tissue paper and some honeycomb balls. I just love the colors and texture it brings to the room. This space has been a work in progress for the past year. With a wide open split level, the eye see’s everything all at once . Slowly things are getting meshed together .
Most of all, this space is a place to call home, and a place to make.
