However when I work from home which is most weekends and some evenings I find I get a bit too lazy. I always start off with good intentions at my kitchen table but inevitably I always find myself creeping towards the comfy sofa.
Although this is great some of the time, I really have noticed it becoming somewhat unproductive. The temptation to turn on that TV and watch that episode of the Big Bang theory I've seen a million times is just too much!
So I decided a couple of weeks ago that I needed a proper desk. After a bit of a furniture move around in my bedroom I had the perfect space for a desk to fit. The table I've got is from Furniture Choice and is actually supposed to be a dining table but it works just as well as a desk.
With any workstation it's important to have things that inspire you around. That way when you daydream you are looking around at inspiring triggers rather than a blank wall.
Around my workstation I have a wooden 'lets get lost' art piece from Dowse, one of my weaves, some plants, a favourite Hello Marine print and some hooks to hold photos or notes. Currently I have a cat card from my bestie, a photo of my newborn niece Martha and a photo of my longtime pal and business partner Amy's cat. Oh how I miss that little kitty!
I also have all the tools necessary to create anything at a whim. My trustee laptop (obvs), my cutting mats, favourite pens, stationary etc.
At the moment the space feels very clean and organised. I am going to TRY to keep it like this. What is it they say? Clean house, clean mind? I think that works for desks too...
