We share our flat with 10 other people from all over the world. We have had roommates from Korea, Finland, Germany, Romania, Austria, Australia, Brazil, Italy, Holland, Ireland, America and of course Spain. Never a dull moment in this mini United Nations.
The only space we have to ourselves is a cozy bedroom, with a balcony. In one corner of the room, is our office, where all the RopeSouls magic happens. This is where we run the website, blog, manage finances, inventory, everything. On the other side of the room, is where we create rope sandals, things get messy over there so we will save that for another post.
One thing I always have on my office desk no matter where I live, is an inspiration board. This helps me get inspired even inside our dusty 250 yr old flat. For my inspiration board I gather things from past travels, rip pages out of magazines, print off pictures from the internet or just grab anything that feels right.
Currently on my board:
- Maps: Preparing for our 3 month travel where we will be living in a van and selling RopeSouls
- Beads from Wukro, Ethiopia: Project Wurko is RopeSouls main goal right now, we hope to make it there this fall.
- Pictures from the Past: My past is important to me right now because I had always wanted to move to Europe and if I hadn't made that decision I never would have had the inspiration to start RopeSouls with Dustin.
- Beach Postcard: Because Rope sandals are THE best beach sandals ever.
Do you have an inspirational space? What do you do for inspiration when the weather is a drag?
