a space to create.

when you run a business from home, every room in the house becomes an extension of your workspace, but i find i still need a space which is entirely my own.  a space with a set up that works the way i work and one with a door that can be closed at the end of a long + often messy work day.

my current work room might be the smallest room in our house [it is in fact not a room at all, it's a little space partitioned off from one of the bedrooms] but it's still a lovely simple space in which to work.

there's a lovely big window with a view of the garden [letting in lots of beautiful light for product photos - which are often snapped on my work table], wooden floors [essential for sweeping] and masses of worktop space and storage [and still i feel like i'm bursting at the seams!].

anyway, why am i sharing this? well, partly because i think it's good to have a little peak 'behind the scenes' and i think it's vital that we all know a little more about where the products we buy are made, who makes them and how they're sourced and created.

sharing a corner of my workspace with you, is my way of starting a conversation about where byebyebirdie products come from.  next time i'll share a little about my 'buy british' principles and my [very choosy] approach to fabric selection.
