Work space

Work space

You're an illustrator, painter, designer, and a blogger. Do you have a room or space of your own? If yes, tell us about it. If no, how do you manage?

Someday a space of my own will be nice, but currently that just isn't practical. Not only is space limited, but I've found I work better just out in the open where I can see the Littles play.

My desk faces the rug where the boys typically create magic and mayhem. If it's an especially magnetic day where Baby O just can't resist the blink of the mouse or clink of the keyboard, I simply slide the couch around and voila!, instant closed-off office/sewing/painting area.

Of course, they've recently made a game out of seeing who can get under my desk and past my legs the fastest...and then they want to play in my work area so much more than anywhere else... That's my cue that it's time to go the park.
