Today's workspace is that of Katie Clemons, owner of Gadanke, and blogger behind Making this Home. I have always loved Katie's fabulous journals and her passion for capturing and documenting stories. I "met" Katie a long, long time ago (I have no idea how long ago, it's been that long :)) via blogging and it's fun to keep up with her and all of the adventures and stories of her and her husband! Welcome, Katie :)I make award-winning writing prompt journals. The goal of my business, Gadanke, is to empower women, help them get through challenging times, and encourage them to celebrate their lives and themselves.
I blog about living a simpler life rich with stories, not stuff.
Tell us about your workspace.
I have two:
The other is in a house we rent. It’s called an “Earthship” because oddly, it’s made of hundreds of old tires. Until our remodel is finished and we move, I hand-build all the Gadanke journals from home.
What is your favorite thing about your workspace?
The airplane hangar is a place of dreams. Where will life take us next? What are the stories we’ll be celebrating?
If you think the idea of living in a house made out of tires sounds weird, it is. It’s not a comfortable place to live at all. But I’m so beyond thankful for the experience. It’s taught me gratitude and patience. A tire house might not be warm all winter. It might have trim made of tires. Yet it’s a house. A good life isn’t free, though. Neither is a comfortable place to live. They take getting out of bed each morning and fighting for your dreams, which because of the tire house, I give it my best to do every single day.
What is one thing you can't live without in your workspace?
My journal. I keep track of a lot of my creative ideas and memories in here
