New Writing/Styling Job and Some Creative Inspiration

Do you remember when my local paper featured me and how I style my home for the holidays last Christmas? Well, guess what? Now I am not only styling for them, but also, writing too!
a scene from a backyard movie photo shoot that I styled and set up in our back yard
I am thrilled because this will make my resume look fab!Smile. Well, I also get to do this from home and little Ian can come with me to work meetings. Love it!
A little bohemian set up I styled for the same photo shoot for the back yard movie night. Cocktails a la bohemian before a movie is always a great idea!
SO where does all this Writing taking place?
Just about anywhere where I can perch my laptop. I have been thinking that I really ought to create a designated creative spot aka an office. I really do not need or want a big space, just someplace pretty, organized, and inspirational. Here are some spaces that I love for my Creative Spaces Board on pinterest:

What does your creative space look like? Blessings and Happy Tuesday everyone! xx

  1. What exciting news Stacey! Styling + writing gig sounds perfect for you and Ian too :) I admit to being more than a tad envious though cause there's a writer deep inside me that would love to be paid 50 cents per word (or even 5 cents, heck I'd write for free just to see my name next to "by"). OK, the styling aspect would have me scared silly but you've got that, no problem! Are your articles online anywhere? Links? I tried to enlarge what you embedded in this post but the text became too blurred for me to read. Happy happy for you. Robin

  2. Congratulations mamma, that's awesome! My 'office' space is just like yours, wherever my laptop can land. I love your inspiration pics!

  3. Chat bout! Congrats girlie. So proud. A designated space to write definitely helps. My office is still a major work in progress but I shared a bit of it last year over on Tiffany's blog: http://tiffanyleighinteriordesign.blogspot.com/2013/01/favourite-furniture-fridays.html

  4. Well done! Warm congratulations island sistah!:-)

  6. Well, lucky them to have you on board! Congrats, you are overqualified for this((:

    hugs Z

  7. THIS is my dream job. I LOVE teaching French, but I dreamt of writing on the side, but everything has blown up in my face...well, not really, because I am TEACHING! But this is awesome my dear. And I know that you are doing a great job at it, and will find the perfect setting to do it. LOVE ALL YOUR PICTURES and congratulations my friend! Anita

  11. This is all so exciting, you must be over the moon! And yes, celebrate with a new creative space, I'm sure it will beat out all the images you've shown!

  13. That is so wonderful that you're writing about something you're obviously so good at for your paper! I imagine that your space is going to look amazing. I can't wait to see it. Mine is very different than the rest of the house--things get a little wild in the studio, haha.
