It’s amazing how many gadgets and tools (not to mention brushes and pens) I’ve collected over the course of owning my own business — I’ve also discovered that they pile up on my desk very quickly unless I have a dedicated spot for each tool. These cubby shelves were the perfect solution — some of them hold my papers and sketchbooks, while others have boxes and baskets that hold smaller odds and ends. Plus, now they’re pulling double-duty as the base for my painting table. Another necessity has been my slotted paper organizer, which holds a small quantity of my packaging supplies for easy access when I’m packaging an order. See below for a few more of my office essentials!
And of course, I couldn’t have an inspiring workspace without some pretty decor! I have a mix of my own and others’ work, as well as a bulletin board where I collect inspiring images — a physical moodboard of sorts. My plan is to add a floating shelf on the wall above my computer/packaging desk, and then I can display a rotating selection of framed prints!
