Hey Today I am sharing where I create + hang out with my family. My office space right now is in our home that we purchased in November of 2012 & when we viewed our home I wasn't able to see this room due to it being closed off in our freezing cold winters.
A Sunroom addition! this room was a serious bonus for us and as the months went by it became warmer and as I opened it for the first time I was hit with this excitement and said "WOW it's my new space" I immediatly knew that it would serve as a seasonal creative space for me and give me that break from the basement office that I temporaily created. LIGHT is something I crave by the time March rolls in & Light we get!
We have two large patio doors on each side of the room and one LARGE picture window you can see above the desk there. So yes it get's a ton of sun, I eventually want to replace the patio doors and put in french doors to update the space. One side of the sunroom patio doors leads out to our backyard deck the other side leads to the courtyard patio space that meets the backdoor and garage. The layout of this house is something I have never seen before and everything I love about it!!
At my desk I am a Pinterest-holic ! various artwork hang above my desk and computer.
I print all my photo's at home So there is a lot of scraps of trimmed paper around here, I trim at the bookshelf beside my desk ( both Ikea purchases). My printer is kept under the desk on a roller cart with very easy access and easy to get to with out having the bulk of a printer on my shelf or desk.
keeping treasures close at hand.
Keeping my latest new purchase close too & loving this to customize any page pocket or layout I need (just started sewing in April).
Trimmer talk, I use two trimmers and there is no rhymn or reason when I use either one. X-acto & Fiskars.
2012 & 2013 albums ... and a whole lot of things get stored in these shelves. Since 2012 i have been a two album user and that's ok for now. You can see the hole puncher I use top left there my trusty Crop-A-dile II is very handy!
Where I put it all together - My working table is the best Kijiji purchase I have made to date. Fourty dollars and I love that I can lay out my entire PL spread and my card container I use also from Ikea (above is my stendig calendar).
I use three of these clear Ikea containers to hold all my supplies like PL cards and stamps, wood veneers, buttons, punches, tiny attacher stapler .... much much more. Also using my tables drawers for inks and various project items, week in the life, december daily, day in the life.
Love this space and the time that we spend in here about six months of the year, On the opposite side of the bookshelf is a couch and on cooler summer nights I open the doors and hang out with the kids watching something on netflix "movie night in the sunroom" with popcorn & it's a fave place for most of us even the dog. I also love that the previous owners put up the cedar walls and the pattern that they used ... I feel like I'm in a cabin tucked away somewhere.
Thanks for letting me share my Office space with you & thanks for reading!
* I am working on a post of current supplies I use watch for that coming soon!
