2019 office tour!

by Kaylah Stroup

For the past few years, basically since the beginning of  The Dainty Squid, I’ve been sharing photos of my office as I move, shift directions, and constantly rearrange. I love documenting my space and being able to look back at how it’s changed. Its fun to watch how my style evolves and how, in some ways, it stays exactly the same.

At the end of 2018, I decided to get back into sewing in a big way so the biggest change in this year’s office tour is the addition of a sewing area. For Christmas, I got a new desk, specifically for my sewing machine, that I placed on the opposite wall of the desk that holds my computer. It’s exactly what I didn’t realize the room was missing. I mean, obviously, it wouldn’t have been of much use to me a year ago when sewing was just about the last thing on my mind. Things really worked out though. This room really never felt complete but with the addition of a little sewing corner, it couldn’t be more perfect.

I can swivel from my computer to my sewing machine with little effort yet it doesn’t feel too crowded. Its ultra cozy and when I keep the door closed it really heats up in here. (We’ve had a brutally cold few weeks!) Needless to say, I’ve been spending a lot of time in this sweet little room the last two and a half months.

to the left of this frame, I have my lightbox & pouch storage. (there’s a shot of that area in this post) (my wedding bouquet!)
