The Space Where you Create

Happy Monday!
I was reading a great post in the Forums on Etsy yesterday where a few people posted their work spaces. All of them were so beautiful I immediately felt a little self conscious of mine. We are still renting a creaky old 2 bedroom duplex and don't have a lot of space to be creative. We share an office (the only other bedroom in the house) where we each have a desk on opposite sides of the wall where we both create. Some of my fondest memories in this house are those days in the evening where we both take cups of tea and back to back sit at our desks and create.

Once I have a bigger home I dream of my creative space being something a little different but this is my space right now, it is where I for the most part create.

The desk and white storage unit are both from Ikea as is the filing rack that sits on top of the white storage unit. The chair is from a thrift store that I purchased years ago for 10$. I love having the filing rack as it does double duty as a filing system for us as well as it holds my shipping materials for my Etsy shop ( You can see more shipping materials in between the desk and the storage unit as well. When you have a small place you have to be creative about storage!

Well that's it, the place where I create.
Lots of love<3


  1. You are to judgmental) Your working space is so lovely and well-organized. I am only dreaming about it.
    Mine is such a mess, so many boxes around.

  2. Thank you so much, it is a constant effort to keep the space organized as it is a bit small. I do really love it though:)
