Etsy keeps sending me these emails with business tips and reminders to update my about page (a new feature on Etsy). It's supposed to help potential customers see the behind the scenes of your creation process and workspace. I looked at a few examples and oh boy, some people really work in beautiful places with beautiful supplies and sure look beautiful while doing it. I finally decided to accept Etsy's challenge and create an about page with the behind the scenes to Citrus and Mint. But I decided that if it was really going to show my true self and process to attract customers, it is not going to be beautiful. Cause it certainly isn't. One day I hope to have my office look like the one above, but for now, this is real life at Citrus and Mint.
If you can't read the captions, here they are:
-pillow place by my husband to prevent me from slouching. Doesn't work.
-Fake leather peeling off the computer chair.
-Poster board barrier to keep the baby from pulling the cords. Doesn't work either).
-Fancy "desk" made of two filing cabinets and a piece of plywood.
-Monitor raised on old college textbooks.
-A non-Mac desktop, yes they do still exist.
A close up of the beautiful "natural" finish on our desk and my red computer glasses. These were actually my first pair of glasses. You know someone's a true fan of color when they pick out red for everyday glasses! The one and only nickname I've ever had was "Mrs. Red Glasses" given to me by one of my middle school students because he couldn't ever remember my name.
Oh and don't forget my pantless "helpers". What do your creative spaces look like? Please tell me that I'm not alone in this!
