It took a long time for me to get my creative space in order. When T and I both worked from home, we shared this room together. Last year when we finished our basement, we built him an office. It was empty until this past summer—until my week of reading deprivation, actually. With no blogs or television, I went to work clearing out my space. I moved T’s things down into his office. He had a built-in desk, so we donated his to the Mission. I gave away fabric, recycled tons of paper and freecycled a bunch of stuff.
The dresser is T’s from when he was younger and it’s now for my fabric storage. The little wooden pantry is from our kitchen in Maryland. That’s where I keep all the little sewing supplies that can’t sit out with a toddler around. My sewing table is a granite table top that I’ve had since I moved into my first apartment on my own.
We’ve been thinking about getting some matching furniture for me—something inexpensive from Target or Office Depot. It would be nice to have everything match, but I’m really liking this eclectic look. I’m surrounded by lots of memories!
