I like to be super productive on Sundays but yesterday for some reason, I left the laundry in a pile and I didn't clean the floors. What I did check off of my list yesterday (besides a really good nap) was creating a new workspace.
I found that I wasn't really using my old workspace. It was cute but it was in a drab guest room that doesn't have alot of natural light so I would always just set up my laptop or lettering supplies in the dining room. Not to mention, it's where all of our candlemaking supplies are stored and the room doesn't feel super organized. It's kind of become the catch-all room so no matter what I do to make it feel inspiring, it's just too dark and cluttered. Here's what it looked like:
Cute right? But I could probably count on one hand the number of times I've actually gone in there to work in the past several months.
So I decided to move my desk into this little nook in our master bedroom because I love our bedroom and it's become a little sanctuary for me. And once I got everything set up, I didn't leave this spot for hours.
Having a cozy space to work in, especially if you're working at home, is so important because when you're trying to be creative, the last thing you want to do is look around and see all of the other things you need to get done. Now when I sit at this desk, I don't have to think about the disorganization behind me and my mind is free to blog, hand-letter and be inspired.
The other great thing about this workspace move is that I've decided to also use it as a vanity so I can do my makeup in the natural light. I'm sure Tim will be happy that my makeup brushes and eye shadows won't be all over the bathroom counter anymore.
So, if you're in a creative rut, re-think your workspace. It could make all the difference!
Do you have a workspace you love? I'd love to see it! Post it on instagram using the hashtag #prettydelightful.
