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.
