Where do i work?

There is a thread on the etsy forums at the moment asking where us etsians do our crafting and i thought it was such a good idea to have everyone share their work spaces!

I took my photos without cleaning anything so you could feel and see exactly what i do when i am slap bang in the middle of working! :)

We have three bedrooms and i actually converted one into my makeup room! Why not an office and work area you ask? Well i want to sit in the lounge so i can watch tv chat to my man and see the sea while i work. Its inspiring and a lot more fun! :) I just need to always pack my goodies away but thats actually a good thing!

My desk looks onto the Mediterranean sea and i get to see yachts and boats coming past which is awesome! I do all my admin goodies at my desk.

Then i do all my creative work at a window sill in the dining room area of our living area (all open plan. It has awesome light and its next to the cupboard i keep all my supplies in. I also take pics in my lightbox here :)

A big trend this Spring and Summer is nautical and French inspired clothing an accessories. Its all red white and blue with hints of french and cute sailor inspired goodies.

Its really easy to change your wardrobe to fit the look just by adding a few accessories to clothes you already own! Do you have a red or navy and white stripe tank top? Why not add a cute french necklace to make your look fit the trend! This Je t'aime necklace or Ma cherie bracelet will be perfect.

A nautical necklace is also cute and a fun way to show you are ready for summer! Pearls, lost coins and starfish are a few of the elements you will see in nautical inspired jewelry and accessories but why not combine them all like in this pretty Out at sea necklace?

Do you love this trend?
