If I'm not grading or prepping for work, I'm often reading, writing, blogging, painting, or a combination of several of those things. I do a lot of my work from home, so I find that my office atmosphere needs to be precisely "me." While my husband does store his archery equipment in my office (or, as we have come to call it, the studio), it really has become my little area of the house. Since I spend quite a bit of time in there, I've collected many posters, paintings, art supplies, journals, etc. that have accumulated over the past couple years Justin and I have lived in our current home.
My studio inspires me. It comforts me. It draws me in.
It allows me to get work done. To be creative.
It's comforting. It's inspiring. It draws me in.
