So, taking a break from my hard work, I thought I'd post some photos of my updated 'desk area'. Once I started uni the books and stacks of paper started to pile up again, and I had recently discovered that Ryman sell fantastic little file cabinets in really cute colours for not very much money so I purchased myself one to organise my packs of paper and sketchbooks. I had to shuffle my desk over to the left to fit the cabinet in, and turn the trestles the other way around which I'm not exactly sure you're supposed to do but I did anyway. I quite like it anyway as I like to rest my feet somewhere when I'm working.
I also started adding my loose bits of paper to the walls - I had the wall under the window set up before, but i've decided I want to fill the entire nook with work. I am enjoying adding illustrations and type that im proud of - it inspires me to do more work in that vein and reminds me what i'm good at. The colour samples came off the back wall and are now on the side for more visibility. It saves all my pretty things hiding inside a sketchbook where I forget to look. I'm really happy with this part of my room now, I say apprehensively that its finished although I hesitate. I would really like a shelf just under the window - duh, I think that's called a windowsill - to get some of my pen pots out of the way of my work space, and have somewhere to nurture some succulents. I've got lots more to share with you but i've been snowed under working for (and then feeling exhausted/frustrated by) a deadline that is tomorrow. Luckily, I'm now feeling zen enough to finish off this blog post and get a good nights sleep for my presentation tomorrow!
