When I originally planned my studio so I would have an editing/ computer work stations and a sewing craft station. But a funny thing happens when have an extra desk in your room. I can’t occupy both desks at once naturally so people start taking over the extra space! My husband started setting up shop because it’s winter and his basement office is cold. Then my friend Erin stopped by for some web advice and set up. Then the littlest ( and have to say cutest) occupant of the desk is my youngest who took her toy laptop and informed me that she was going to “work”. I had to take a picture!
The truth is I love that all of these people have been able to be work in my studio space. I think it’s important to keep the door to your space open. Doing what I do can be very solitary work. But keeping my studio door open and having a spare desk has allowed others to enjoy the studio as well. Be sure to keep your creative life open to others – I can’t tell you how much inspiration and help I’ve gotten from my friends and family – all because they spend time in my studio.
