Office Tour

I have been spending so much time in my little office space lately that I thought I'd share it with you! It's sort of where "all the magic happens." Whether I'm designing, promoting, printing, packaging I'm most likely sitting right here at my desk.
I do my very best to keep my area clean. I find I work better when there isn't stuff lying around everywhere. Maybe it's the slightly-organization-obsessed part of me but it's easiest for me to focus with a clean table top! (Do you recognized the painted side table from this post?)
In my attempt to stay organized and tidy, I always keep a look out for storage containers at the thrift store. My favorite find was this metal set of drawers. Three bucks and it's perfect for storing my cards!
I have two framed prints I bought from Elsie a while back on each side of my desk.
To add some extra cuteness (ok a lot of extra cuteness) to my work space, I added the amazing vintage sewing machine Jordan got me for Christmas last year. I seriously think this is the prettiest sewing machine I have ever seen.
The newest addition to the office is this inspiration board I got c/o Soft Surroundings. I love it because it helps display all my cards and photos in an organized, yet cute, way. I wasn't ready to part with some of the Christmas cards I received this year so it was a perfect place to put them! Plus, how cool are the vintage postage replicas stamped on it? You can follow Soft Surroundings on Facebook and Pinterest.

I had so much fun sharing this little glimpse into my office space with you guys! It's a small start to a dream studio (one day!). xo JA

  14. I have almost the same setup. Well.. iMac next to Canon printer.. but I only WISH my desk looked as clean as yours. I definitely struggle keeping things organized sometimes and I would give $3(and more) to find a little set of metal drawers like that one!

  15. I love your workspace. I'm not sure mine has ever looked HALF so tidy! And mine's definitely not as adorable. I'm going to have to work on that, methinks.

    If you don't mind sharing, I'm curious what printer you use? I'm a graphic design nerd and always wonder what other folks like to use. :)

  25. I LOVE your space! Beautiful! I'm working on converting our guest room (that's been fairly wasted space since we don't have a lot of guests) into my studio right now. This is inspiring and gives me something to look forward to!
