About two years ago Dustin and I purchased a small mobile home. We live in one of the most expensive towns in the country and we really wanted to stop wasting money on rent for places that we did not really love. So, we found this adorable little home in a perfect downtown location and we couldn't be happier. While sometimes we wish we had more space, we are thrilled we have a little place that is totally ours. We also love that we have a little land to finally have a garden! I am planning on doing a complete home tour over the next few months and I thought I could start with our cozy little office.
Poor Dustin is sort of crammed into one side of the room. His side is pretty simple. Some chemistry books and his computer that he has been glued to for the past month working on a strategy game that he has been designing since before I met him, hence the dice. It is a really interesting concept and it seems like he might be getting close to finishing it:)
My work spaces have always looked somewhat like this, I like to call it organized clutter. Since I was a little girl I have been a jane of all trades, never being able to decide if I wanted to be an artist, or photographer, or writer, or singer, or whatever other passion came my way. I like to put all of my tools side by side to remind myself that I don't have to ever choose one thing. I can be a little good at everything! This is why my cameras will always live on top of my books, my paints next to my crochet hooks, glitter next to ukulele tuner.
My books are something that I have collected since I was a teenager. They are the one thing I have allowed myself to accumulate over the years, the one thing I have taken with me everywhere, save a 2 year stint while they lived in Portland, OR with a friend where I thought I would be moving. That never happened and I just got them back last year. I always feel more motivated, creative, and inspired when they are all displayed around me. It is almost like I can feel all the talent and intelligence that the people used to write them.
I hope you enjoyed this small peek into our home!
