::Office - My Creative Space::

I am a creative person. Photography is one of my many creative outlets. I love to do crafts, to make handmade gifts, and every once in a while, when I get a little bit of free time, I like to knock a Pinterest pin off my to do list. Before I had a place to do all my creative projects I would take hostage our large dinning room table for a few weekends and it drove my Studhubs bonkers! I mean so there's glitter on your dinner plate. Big deal just eat!  He is a neat, organized, uncluttered fellow and to this day I dont know how he manages to survive under the same roof with me....like seriously you should see my room! Its like a thrift store monster threw up on my side of the room (oh yes I said sides and its obvious who's side is who's). Anyway that's a whole other blogpost!

So really in an effort to save my love from such heartache every time I get into my crafting mood, I just had to do something! Recently the room adjacent to our bedroom was stripped of wallpaper (blah, ICK!, yuck!- I hate wallpaper!) painted and made livable for my sister who lived with us for a few months while we got our new rental ready for her. Since she moved out about a year ago its been sitting vacant and I kept going back and forth in my mind about doing something with it. The room originally was supposed to be a nursery but after struggling with fertility issues for the last 5 years God only knows how long it will be before it becomes that. So I made a decision: This will be my creative space!

Slowly I began the process of moving things upstairs from the small office Kevin and I shared. I discovered my new office would be a wonderful place to do my editing as well so I moved my desk, equipment, and props up as well. Its finally done and I thought I would share with you where all the magic happens! lol That's so corny!

 This is where I do all my photo editing. I have a thing for little gold arrows recently so I couldnt resist this find at Target.

 Behind my chair at my desk I have a few selections from my portfolio hanging up that I had printed in 8x10.

 Right next to the door as you walk in I have my chair where I have my TAWG. I have thank you notes from my awesome clients and a picture from my wedding. There is also a place for Tirzah to sleep and on the end table is Tango the betta fish!

 This is where I store all my photography equipment and some props. I also used some old glass jars as planters... a little something I found on pinterest :)

 The closet holds some more craft supplies and the larger photography props. Tirzah is also a frequent visitor of my creative space!
