WOYWW #245 - A different creative area

We have a blast on WOYWW. Don’t have a clue as to what I’m talking about? Stop in at Julia Dunnit’s blog for all the DETAILS. In a nutshell, this gives us an open invitation every Wednesday to showcase what we’re working on and to peek in on work spaces all over the world. We would love to have you join us!

So here’s my desk for this week:

In this picture you'll see the important things: laptop, music magazine (I blog for), my coffee and external speakers to better hear music cds for review.

This is not in my studio but where I do other creating besides playing with paper.
For several weeks I've been on the hunt for a 1950s style vanity or desk. Something small, solid with lots of drawer space that I could use as a desk.

I've resigned myself to the fact we will not be building a studio and getting me out of the basement. Since the majority of my day is spent in the 'office' side of the studio I made lots of trips up and down the stairs multi-tasking... aka juggling business with housework. My knees can not take the abuse any more. I'm hoping if I don't continue to beat them up maybe they won't force me into surgery down the road.

This little desk fits off to the side of the double-doorway between the kitchen and the laundry room, the two places I spend most of my non-working time. Though my research books and office supplies are still downstairs, I have the immediate needs to do the music promotion and article writing close at hand.

The Get Organized Challenge is still in progress. We are on Week 4 - Photos. This is where I've fallen off the wagon in the past. Next week I hope to be back in the studio.

Creative Blessings!

  6. Hi Kelly! You are at the WOYWW party! :) I am also in the basement, but not too bad, because family room is here too, with hubby. :)

  7. Great solution. My computer and crafting space are one and the same but the crossover isn't great - my keyboard still has glass beads lurking inside form a devastating spill about 10 ears ago.... :)

    day out with DH kept me from WOYWW so here I am today!
