A Table of One's Own
Posted on May 10 2017
I've wanted a desk in our house for a long time, but we never had the space. I figured we'd have to move for me to get a room of my own a la Virgina Woolf but recently something strange happened. Our geriatric dogs (ages 13 and 12) decided they hated their crates during the day. They've both loved having their own space to sleep since they were puppies, but we became concerned they were going to hurt themselves trying to break free. We experimented a bit with leaving them out, and they did fine, so we packed up the crates and suddenly there was a blank wall in our front room calling my name.
I had been keeping my planner stuff on an Ikea Raskog cart and wheeling it to the kitchen table when I wanted to use it, but now I'm so excited for it to have a home base! My handy husband fixed a table he found on the side of the road, and I cleaned it up and popped on an old table cloth from Target.
I recently got into stickering (is that a word?) and my kids love it too. We order the Pipsticks monthly pack and our neighbor friends always seem to be over when it arrives. They LOVE filling out the postcards that come inside and mailing them. The mom in me is especially excited for a fun way to practice writing over the summer. I get both the kid and adult sticker pack, because why not? The sticker fun usually leads to a request to get out the "art cart." Once it's out, I can't resist!
A few times when planning in my Cahier Traveler's Notebook, I noticed the dot grid array was about the same size as some of the "standard" stickers available on Etsy. The dot grid is available as a Traveler's Notebook or as a planner add-on, or even as a stand alone notebook. I decided to do an experiment with a few of my favorite shops' box stickers.
I also noticed that the width is the same as the columns in Limelife's 7x9 Layout A. I don't have Layout A, but I printed a sample page from the website. I think it's so neat that you can try out your planning style before committing to a full planner.
I can't wait to show you more from my new table. Also, stay tuned for a Favorite Things Giveaway on my Instagram for my birthday! It's coming up soon! Happy stickering!
