Where the ✨ MAGIC ✨ happens!

“Writing stories is a kind of magic, too.”

― Cornelia Funke, Inkheart

Setting up a writing space was one of my favorite tasks to do, when I decided it was finally time to pick up the pen and never put it down again.

Luckily for me, I had just the space. We have a fourth bedroom that has been utilized in many different ways over the seven years we have lived in our house. It’s been a “Junk” room, Guest Bedroom, LulaRoe Closet (when I was a consultant many moons ago!), “Junk Room 2.0”, Play Room and then a Den.

Just as I was looking around Pinterest for ideas on how to create a home office that suited the space, (and getting super excited about the possibilities), I was given the best gift God could give me.

After not feeling well for a few weeks, I discovered that I was expecting my youngest kiddo, Maverick. Needless to say I was quite surprised by this development.

Even though I was overjoyed to add to my family, it meant I had to halt my office plans. Designing his nursery became a priority and I stored most of the furniture I had been collecting in the garage. The nursery is still a very special project for me as it’s creation is the last project I was able to do with my Momma before she passed.

It still looks exactly as it did before he was born. Even though he will be turning four this year, Maverick doesn’t seem to mind. I am grateful for that. 🖤

After Maverick was born, I gave myself some time to acclimate to being a mom of three kiddos. But those long nights provided plenty of time to scroll Pinterest and think about what I could do, now that my office space needed a new home.

After talking to my husband, he agreed that I could take a corner of our Master Bedroom and convert it into a small writing space. This allowed me to not have to get rid of all of my furniture and still have enough storage to keep all of the things I would need for my journey—without losing my style.

I still have a few furniture pieces tucked away in the attic for now (before I know it, my kids will be grown) and I will find myself in that spare bedroom again.

For now, I love my cozy little author nook. It has everything I need when I have time to work from home.

So…✨ TADA ✨

Here it is in all of it’s cozy glory. And lucky for you, my Editor in Chief was feeling photogenic today. With the Zoo I have, there is ALWAYS a fur baby lurking nearby. Hedwig just happens to be the boss. 😉

I would love it if you shared your space with me too! I would love to see what you designed for yourself to allow your creativity to flow!
