I'm on a quest to make my home office beautiful. And by "office" I mean "corner of my bedroom where my desk sits."
My office includes:
A large, brown desk
A large, wheeled, black office chair
Two flat screen monitors (different sizes)
Black computer tower
Black peripherals (keyboard, mouse, Bamboo tablet)
Silver/black speakers and sub-woofer
Once you add in Nils' computer/monitors/desk,
the list is almost duplicated. I'm going to make it beautiful. Somehow.
Unfortunately, my usual round of home/design blogs lacks advice in this department. Perhaps the ability to fill a closet with hardware isn't a widespread problem for the design-blogging population. That said, the internet is a vast and I'm sure like-minded people are out there. The trick is to find the like-minded people that also blog about their homes in excruciating detail.
Antec case and Macbook pictures from Antec
and Apple. That's my computer case: window panel, blue LEDs and all. I wouldn't have it any other way.
I'm keeping my desk (it also serves as our filing cabinet) and won't be downgrading any of the computer hardware, so "making things lighter" will likely be a challenge. I'm looking forward to seeing what some paint, a new chair, and perhaps matching, wall mounted monitors might do over the next few months.
Two songs! No way! Here are a couple songs from Beat Connection. I meant to post these a few weeks ago when we first saw them at a
strange, happy little club in Seattle, but I totally forgot. I'd never
heard of them before, but I like where they're
Q and I took a few photos of dried
hydrangea blossoms this weekend. We held a couple canvases up in the
air to make some colorful backgrounds. These might turn into some simple
paintings in the future.
Too much work, not enough crafting/sewing/making. Things are likely to be a bit quiet for a while.
I'm currently waiting to get Really Wild Tea Cosies in the mail. Eagerly awaiting a book on "wild tea cosies" makes me feel like a grandmother, but these are really cool. Not that I've ever seen Abuelita knit a tea cosie, let alone a wild one, but I feel like a fancy grandmother nonetheless.
I got two teapots for Christmas and I've been using both of them constantly. I have a little one from Wish which I keep at work, and a larger one from Nils' mom that I keep at home. I'm thinking the little one needs an explosion of coral and the larger one could use a bouquet of flowers stuck on top. It might help if I knew how to knit, but I think I'm a pretty quick study and should be OK. Besides, the internet can teach you how to do anything, right?
