Monday.Mess : Emmadime (on a Tuesday)

Monday Mess on a Tuesday… I’m pretty thrilled to have the lovely Emma Robertson of Emmadime featured this week.  I’ve loved Emma’s blog for quite some time.  Not only is Emma a blogger but she is a designer and really great one.  I’m continually inspired by her design work and aesthetic (I’m totally loving her new series called Top Notch Type where she + Eva share a font, show it in use + share how to dowload it).  I’m pretty grateful to Emma because she introduced me to Bre (her business partner) who re-designed my site.  Between these two darling designers I’ve come to love type and am a designer wanna be of sorts.  Oh and I should also mention that Emma is co-owner of Our Paper Shop and has a darling online shop Emmadime Knitted.  The girl has got it going on!

I worked from home a lot this past week and weekend so I have made quite a mess around the apartment – I have a hard time not covering every inch of space with something – yarn, markers, books, food, pens, notes, etc. It’s nice changing up my work environment every once in a while – especially when it involves me being closer to my fridge with my favorite snacks in it ( this week it’s cherries! ) Cleaning up will basically involve me putting everything in a bag and toting it up to my studio, to make another colorful & disastrous mess there.

I am okay with leaving my studio messy all the time – that’s what it’s there for right!? At the end of the day, the last thing I want to do is tidy up a space that I know will be frazzled in a matter of minutes the next day.

I have to say, I love Emma’s take on just letting her studio be.  A studio is for working after all and sometimes you just have to spread out, let your stuff settle and be used.

I thought you might want to know (I did) a bit more about what is on Emma’s table.  Here is what she had to say:

My two favorite marker sets are Prisma Color & Martha Stewarts Craft Set!
They both have such a massive amount of colors in them.

The Book is : Flea Market Style
I couldn’t resist it – it’s such a great look into some intentionally messy spaces.

I am currently knitting with Cascade 220 & Blue Sky!
I used to skimp on quality yarn but now that I have started researching what’s that out there, I can’t help but get the good stuff!

More Monday Mess here.
