Where do you live and work?I currently live in southern California, in a tiny little house really close to the ocean. And my family is quite big, so I work all over the house. In my room, I have a desk but I mostly work on my laptop in bed. Downstairs in the finished garage is where I do all my sewing. It is so not glamorous, but I have shelves and shelves and tables and stations and I don’t have to put anything away, so it works just fine.
