Who doesn’t love to ooh & ahh over other people’s homes? Get ideas from their designs? Hello? Pintrest?! With the launch of my ‘mini’ businesses (not to mention farm life but La Ferme soy candles & my crafty event planning like Rusty ReDeux & The Gathering) I’ve been looking for inspiration for my workspaces. Not just organization (yes ma’am I need that!!!) but it has to look pretty. My Desert Cottage hosts an amazing event each year called Where Bloggers Create! You can go here and see all of the participants lovely workspaces. I can hardly wait to see this years, in which I have decided to join in the fun. No, it’s not because I have a fabulous space. In fact space is something I’m lacking. But part of my passion behind anything I do is to ENCOURAGE women. And honey if I can run a business from my kitchen table then you can too!!! I do my best business planning while ironing hubby’s shirts (gotta have something to make it less of a chore). I dream up new packaging while milking the goat. Building Lincoln Log towers? Yep….working!!! I might not have much space to store all the goodies I need but my mind is brimming with ideas; which is why I love what Karen from My Dessert Cottage has done so I can get ideas for my “studio” all the while being inspired.
You know that I’m a farmer so I have several “headquarters” in the barnyard. The Chateau Poulet is a spot I visit daily.
Now this is a place where some serious work gets done!!! I’m a planner and a creative soul & it all starts with a beautiful view. When I’m planning a class for Rusty ReDeux or dreaming up booth displays a shady tree is perfect for me.
I store paint and shovels, seeds & feed, bubbles & baseball bats; all in here.
Inside the house I do a lot of work on the computer. Yes honey Facebook can be considered working!!! I also make my soy candles in the house. I store all of my notebooks, scraps of lace, fragrance oils, wax, lids, twine, clay, etc, etc in a small room off my kitchen. I’m not sure what purpose the room was intended for, maybe a pantry of sorts, but I fit two pieces of furniture in there. A small rolltop and an old changing table with a burlap skirt.
What I love most about the Where Bloggers Create ‘challenge’ is that next year I can look back and see where I was just 7 short months after launching 2 businesses at once! And seeing how far I’ve come. Hopefully no matter how much space I might physically have I will be overflowing with dreams & the joy I get from creating.
