Gram's old print

I do most of my work at home and it’s a tricky balance. I can’t quite keep the sentimental things out of my office, even though I barely have room for my stationery, reference books, samples, drawings. All that pesky work stuff. But keeping something inspiring or sentimental next to where you spend so many hours only helps to feed your creativity.

Ada, I’m going to add a note here about  inspiring organizers in my workspace. 

These Italian school notebooks are so traditional looking, they make me nostalgic for my grade 4 schooldesk and freshly sharpened pencils.   The dusty colours inspire me to fill them with ideas and sketches. 

Eventually I add covers to create travel or working diaries, stuffed with collected  memorabilia.
