I was so excited when Holly’s Plate entered her workspace. It’s fun to see where the girl behind the blog spends most of her time. What do you think?
Everything in my office is very modular ? right down to the view. I have a few organic shapes… The plants, the vases, a little bird, what’s on my monitor, all thrown in to create some visual interest and add a little personality. My office is also mostly brown accented by some pops of blue.
The card I selected, called Frame, was a perfect match for my space. It’s mostly brown with a pop of blue. It, too, is very modular but has the organic shapes in the numbers of the address. The overall look is clean, modern and sophisticated, with just a hint of playfulness ? a lot like my, much loved, office.

This contest is so much fun, It’s great to see where you work, how you organize things, and the colors that you love to work around. Such creativity! In addition to the entries, it’s fun to read your comments, too. Please keep ‘em flowing, as they are extremely helpful as we try to determine our final three.
From our five entries posted yesterday, we have three strong leaders of the pack. Based solely on your comments and emails, Christine and her classroom (#105), Gennine in Mexico (#101), and Jessica in Chicago (#104) are the leading ladies for now (not in that order). Let’s see how things go today as more appear here on decor8!
So… Look for more workspace entries today, voice your opinion, and help us find our winners! Winners will be announced on Friday, October 13th at 5PM EST! Who said Friday the 13th is always bad?! :)
Here’s a fun and quite unexpected entry – I’m so happy to have second grade teacher Christine in our contest.
Here is my entry for the workspace contest. This is probably not the type of entry that you are recieving. This is my second year teaching second grade so I’m still settling into my classroom. My goal is to try to make my classroom functional, inviting, and cute (but not too cute) without it seriously affecting my less than fabulous teacher’s salary. I’m also at work a lot so I want it to be a space that I feel comfortable in.
What would I do without my venti coffees?
As for the card style that I think best matches my workspace: I had to pick, what else?, an apple for the teacher.
1OOth day book chain: my students wrote down 1OO of their favorite books that they read during the 1st 1OO days of school.

Jessica is a Graphic Designer from Chicago. Check out her energetic workspace!
Here are pix of my home office for the Fabulous Stationery contest! As you can see, orange makes me happy–from the design on the curtains I painted, to the pillows on my reading chair, to the goldfish on my mousepad. You’ll glimpse fun features in here (can you find them?), such as my square flower painting and the tiny cow that reminds me of home. This is the place I like to be.
Orbit Names, from Fabulous Stationery, looks like my office. Don’t you agree?

My inspirational swipe board….and a small batch of my cupcake pincushions!
Betz would like to welcome you to her studio! Betz combines the ancient technique of felting with today’s cast-away sweaters to create what she calls “felted wool, artfully stitched”. Betz has been experimenting with felting and fulling wool for more than 10 years. With a background in children’s apparel design the results are fun, fresh and whimsical.
Notes from Betz: I am a textile and apparel designer. I also have my own website, where I feature my work in recycled felted wool. My studio is a sun room accessed by french doors off of our family room. I can seclude myself from the mine field of legos lurking right outside my door. On the flip side, when I make my own creative catastrophe in my studio, I can leave it behind closed doors.

The card that best fits my studio: Bands.
The armoire is my stash of supplies…
Betz has a Etsy store, if you’re interested in her felted wool beauties!
