I realized it’s been a while since I’d shown off my office space and since I just reorganized a few things and got a new (to me, anyways) laptop, I figured it was time to give you all a full look at where I spend the majority of my time.
I got this desk on Craigslist ages ago and keep telling myself I’m going to paint it, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I really like burning candles while I work and luckily my awesome penpal keeps sending me her amazing nerdy themed candles so I always something nice to help set the mood. I also keep a pile of note pads nearby in case I need to jot stuff down while researching.
I also took advantage of this time to refresh my inspiration board. I used to use it for holding bits of information, but now it’s full of things that make me smile, like fan art and novelty post cards. It’s also been a good place for me to display my ever growing collection of buttons.
Next to the window, above my inspiration board I have another mini cork board I made for displaying my enamel pins, most of them from various PAXs. I also hide my mini Frankenstein’s monster and his bride here.
Behind my desk is my vanity area. The office is actually an offshoot of our bedroom, with a curtain separating the two rooms, but it’s pretty small so parts of it spill into the office. I’ve pretty much run out of room for makeup, so I guess that means I can’t collect anymore. lol
Next to the vanity are more things that make me smile and an aloe plant. I love having lots of green things in my office, I find them very inspiring. Sadly, I seem to be cursed with a black thumb so I tend to just replace them when they inevitably die.
I also set up a little altar at the far side of office. I’m not a practicing witch by any means, but I like the idea of bringing the mystical into my creative space. I also use this area to do daily one card readings using my Linestrider Tarot deck.
I also put together a little video tour so you can get a better idea of how things are situated. It’s my first time doing this kind of video so I’m eager to hear what you think.
