paper fans and a crib spring

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.

computer2Using 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.  computer4This 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.
