Koo & Poppet HQ: from a caterpillar to a butterfly! (eventually)

Our basement is currently a construction zone. For the sake of my sanity, last night I at least organized the piles of all the things that have been recently ousted from my office during the reno. All pens, and I mean ALL pens, are in one place. You have no idea how satisfying that knowledge is for me!

Yes, Scott is selflessly slaving away his weekends to give me a brand new sparkly workspace for Koo & Poppet to conduct business and create. I'm contemplating an entire chalkboard wall, which would serve not only as one bigmassivehuge list-making place, but also as the back-drop for photos of new Koos (on little white shelves). Anyway, while I'm sure no one really cares about the office upgrade, I do want to share my first official decor purchase (from derder), and yes, I know these are EVERYWHERE:

For times when I don't notice for 5 minutes that the bobbin thread has run out; for times when I sew over a pin and break a needle; for times when Coco The Whippet eats a Koo.

I love those signs! I think everybody loves to see renovations and peeks into where people create so keep those photos coming as the process continues.

Good Luck!

I can't wait to see the finished room. I am sure it will be fab!

I got the same sign and put it right next to our kitchen table. Everytime Gavin throws his food on the floor or Sophie complains that
"something doesn't taste good" I look at the sign, take a deep a breath and carry on:)
