I consider myself to be a bit of a type A personality… I write detailed notes, I’m very orderly, I get things done. That being said, just glimpsing my project desk at home would not necessarily support that conclusion.
Glancing at my old school wooden drafting desk, it’s a mess of art supplies, scattered on the desk itself and hanging haphazardly from the wall. There’s piles of paper stacked in no particular order and a peg board fluttering with crumpled scribbles on scraps of paper. There’s also a stack of books I’ve read recently which I’ve been meaning to write book reviews for.
This is my desk space…
Even though it’s chaos, it gets the job done… for the most part. I love having a space that I can leave ideas or drawings, store odds and ends for projects, and stash my computer and books (when they’re not in their bookshelf homes).
The only bad part is that I currently cannot actually use it as a desk. There’s no room to work! I’ve been getting in the habit of taking my computer and notes to sit by the fireplace or in my cozy book nook since I have no place to spread out my notes. I think I need some shelves….
Does anyone else have this problem?
