Where The Magic Happens

Okay ...

As you know, the plan for the weekend was organizing my office space. The intent was to create a space where I felt inspired to well create. I wanted a room where I felt comfortable being me and pursuing my artistic endeavors. Well here goes ...


Now, a few things. My goal was to do a huge Molly Sims inspired wall mural for the main wall. On Saturday morning my co-worker who knew I was going to do art this weekend, got me a surprise. He bought me a 2 pack of canvases to help with my day. I decided to use those instead for over my computer cart. I went with two verbs I really want to implement into everything I create - LOVE because w/o love what's the point? And SHINE because I think if I allow myself to step out of my self-implemented constraints and just SHINE, my work will speak for itself.

As far as the main wall, I decided I'm going to do a collection of photos, posters and other art work that inspires me. This collage is the first step - it has pictures of times when I did shine or when I felt loved. It also contains encouraging cards I've received over the years that to this day make me want to be better.

I do not have the desk that I want yet. In the meantime, I'm using this dining room table my step sister got me as a house warming gift. It definitely serves the purpose. I'd ultimately like to get a desk more like this one, but for right now this will definitely do.


Finally the shelves - I didn't do cleaning :( I also need to get all of my things shipped to me from L.A. I have tons of books, degrees and pictures that will line the shelves so that is to come.

All in all, I'm satisfied with the office as it is right now! I feel that I've got a space that I can create and explore my creativity. Funny thing, as I cleaned up the floor last night an idea hit me so hard that I had to stop and right it down. (It literally brought me to tears.)I'm excited to pursue that idea in my new office space.

Girl, we are too much alike! I have a desk like this. Probably not this expensive version, but it is very similar!
