Before falling pregnant with Hannah, I spent my nine-to-fives in a small cubicle in Sydney city. The window cubicles were reserved for executives and corporate salespersons. But all I had to do to enjoy views of the Sydney Harbour and the Opera House was to get up from my office chair.
Had it not had such an open and beautiful view, a few more years in that box and I’d be tempted to do the same as graphic designer Maria, seen today on Lifehacker. Maria got some inexpensive fabric from Ikea and created a personal and happy space for her daily 8-hour grind.
Good huh? And not much of experience and skill required, just a “that’s it, I’ve had enough of beige”, a staple gun and some pretty fabric. Read more of Maria’s cubicle happiness on her blog.
Of course, that got me going to Flickr for more cubicle happiness.
