The following article is a part of our Deskscape Series. Many of us spend up to eight or nine hours at our desks per day, making our “deskscapes” a creative reflection of the book publicity work we do for our clients every day.
Partner & Director of MC Satellite Kristin Clifford Creedle shares some of her favorite parts of her deskscape:
Working from home has allowed me to better balance my two worlds: new mom and Partner at MEDIA CONNECT… and I’m forever grateful!
Having just settled into my new desk after my maternity leave I haven’t had much time to decorate my new office space, but there are two items sitting on my desk that never fail to make me smile. One is a picture taken of my husband and I on our wedding day, and the other is an adorable calendar my mother gave to me for Christmas this year. This month features two bright pink seahorses giving each other a little smooch.
After a client call, writing a new business proposal, brainstorming or hashing out the latest billing, it helps to be able to look around and clear my head. For me, most days that now means taking a few steps into the living room and visiting my 6-month-old twins, Vivienne and Liam, but for those moments when there’s no time to take even five minutes I can take two seconds and recall the thrill I felt on the day I got married, and that in turn reminds me of how lucky I am today.
And then there are those times when my household comes to visit me… my cat Lily has decided that she’s my new co-worker and often settles herself in my inbox. I can’t say she’s very helpful but she’s guaranteed to make me smile.
