My Space















Jenn, over at Working Writer, posted about her space yesterday, and wanted to know what other bloggers' "spaces" looked like. Well, here's mine....

















Yes, the back of my chair is broken, and yes, my cat is often perched atop the printer. For all of the things that aren't perfect, I love my office. It's a 10' x 4' space, but I've made the most of it, with a little help from my darling husband. As I've said before, I have lots of natural light pouring through my south facing windows. And the kids tend to play out front, so for 8 months of the year, I can hear them call me through the screens.

I have carved out my own little niche. When I need quiet, I lock the door, fire up my mp3 player, and I can almost pretend I'm the only person in the world.

As soon as the weather warms up, and I have my laptop, I'll be using my front porch as a secondary work place. It adds another 100+ square feet.

What a great space! I love how much shelving you have, too - a dream of mine one day. LOL I can't hear my kids from my office, but I do have the opportunity to work outside when the weather warms up. :)

My husband built the book cases, put up the shelves above the desk and built the printer stand. I LOVE that man! :D
