A Someday Home Studio

As always, I'm in hot pursuit of "me space". I love my little office nook, shoved into a corner of my laundry room.  It's functional and practical.  I can write and work from home while keeping an eye on my kiddos.  But it also means that any work I do is littered with distractions, noise and the general hub-bub of my home.  This week I've been drooling over these amazing studio/office spaces, dreaming of a time when I might have, as Virginia Woolf once had, a room of my own.

This is my little makeshift office.  It's tucked into a small corner of my laundry room.  It's a bit cramped but seems to work well for the moment.  I sit at this desk all the time and would love to have a space that's more conducive to writing and other creative pursuits.  I want a real studio - a space that is all my own that supports my painting, my writing and my quiet time.  This will be a long term process, but my hope is to have a room of my own by this January.

Personally, I love the blue wall with the cloths pin lines.

Virginia is so right. We all deserve our own little space. These are super cozy. So nice of you to share.

Yes, yes! You need a space. I miss my little hole in the wall office space. Time to kick hubby out of the shed, and take over that spot. Maybe it's time to bunk the boys together.

OOOOPS! You must have been the last one on my computer. That last comment should have been from Connie, not Sarah!
