We opened our Etsy shop Pig and Fish in February of 2011 and thus began our adventure in the world of becoming an online retailer.  Our new home had the perfect layout for our studio and office - a wood shop in a separate building, a spacious finishing studio where pieces are assembled, and a beautiful office space with 9 foot ceilings.  So, here we are about to hit our 2 year anniversary and it's a perfect time to not only celebrate, but to also reflect upon what's been working and what needs to be upgraded.  I'm putting our office on the list.  Here's why.  Even though the space is awesome with a funky old metal filing cabinet, a handmade desk, printer, pens, paper, paper clips - something's still missing & I think I've figured it out.  I haven't 'owned' the space - meaning it's strictly a work space where I get the work done and not a personalized work space where I enjoy getting the work done.  See the difference?  For 2013, I want to work on making the space really cozy and welcoming - a space that encourages productivity, but also enjoyment.  I've created a virtual office with my selections, all of which can be viewed here.  

So, I'd love to hear about your office - is it functional, practical, inspiring??  Let's hear it!  


  1. love your picks! would love to have a more functional space, currently kind of spread all over the house. that is our goal for this next year, to be more functional and organized. a serious sort through of everything we own is over due. thanks for a bit of inspiration

  2. I hear you Kathi - when you're self employed, it can be easy to have your functional space be here, there and everywhere! The new year is always a great time to start planning and taking action.
