Sometimes, as a designer and mother, the line between work and home life is quite blurry.
This past weekend has been about creating a work space in my home that meshes better with my family life. We are looking into adding a dog to our family, but random balls of yarn and project bags are far too tempting to most dogs.
A necessity is to create a spot where all the yarnie stuff can be secured away from a curious pooch.
I already had this desk/hutch. It had been where I kept my old computer and took care of bill paying and was tucked away in a corner of our dining room. But it had become somewhat abandoned this past year, since the location didn’t work well for me to crochet comfortably there.
Now I have 2 of my work tubs stored in the bottom part of the hutch, with my laptop and a good lamp on the desk surface. Best of all I’m using my ergonomic split keyboard again, which is much kinder to my hands.
I’m still developing my plan for the best layout of my work area, but I think this is going to be a much better set-up than I was using, as well as being dog-proof.
