Joy, Socks and Flat File Workstation

“Draw Something That Brings You Joy” was the cue for May 3. The first thing I thought of was my new (to me) flat file work station. I already had one set of files and was using them as a seating area, covered by a board, foam pad and quilt. But I decided I needed a  standing work station more than a lounging area in the studio.

Months ago I started watching Craigslist for another set. I finally found one in my sister’s neighborhood and my brother-in-law was willing to help me get them home, build a sturdy base for them and set them up, with the white melamine-covered board now a table top. Yay!

Day 4 was “Draw Your Socks” but it could have also been another “something that brings you joy” day, since my wonderful Smartwool Socks bring me and my feet much joy. Especially these cute, funny ones that look like there are two or three socks in one and have blue polka dots, flowers and stripes on them.

I’m really enjoying your daily drawings and I think that’s more so because I think you’re enjoying doing then! And it shows. Hope that’s right. There’s just something simple and playful about them that I love. Glad there are more coming… No pressure!! 🙂


Thanks Jennifer. I’m definitely enjoying it and like you said, enjoying being playful with them. I plan to do all 31 days in May so there will definitely be more coming! Jana
