Hi all! Polly Jewelle here with another edition of Behind the Design. With a little bit of pleading and maybe a few bribes the designers here at The LilyPad to agreed to show off their design spaces at home. They also agreed to answer a few questions about their design space that will allow us to get to know them better. This month we are going behind the designs of
Mac or PC?
Mac all the way!! I have a very old one though. It’s a 2011 PowerBook Pro, 17″ screen, 2,5 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, with 6 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (I just copied that off my computer – I have no idea what it means!) My husband is the tech guy and I just scream when something doesn’t work. I’ll be updating my computer soon… hopefully!
Coffee or tea (or both/neither)?
Ok, so I’ve been addicted to coffee since University, but I recently quit… so right now it’s neither!
I usually don’t eat when I’m creating. I forget to… and then I’ll compensate afterwards. When I’m procrastinating… well that’s another story.
Favorite music to listen to?
I tend to love female singers with low-mid ranges, so I can sing along! My favorites would be Feist, Adele, Norah Jones, Sarah McLauchlan, and Quebec French singer Andrea Lindsay.
Your view from your scrap space?
I use Adobe CS5 – both Photoshop and Illustrator, though I tend to rely on PS a lot more. I’ve been planning to learn more about Illustrator – bought the courses and all – just no time to sink into it!
Favorite photo editing tools?
I have Lightroom, but I have never even opened it yet! Again, I have the course to learn how to use it, so that’s a start! I find that PS meets most of my photo editing needs. In fact, I often just use my iphone apps to edit. They’re so handy!
Favorite time to create (morning or evening)?
The best time for me to create is anytime that the kids aren’t around. Unfortunately, that often ends up being during the night. I am trying to correct this though. I just can’t function without sleep like I used to.
Favorite thing about your workspace?
Least favorite thing about your workspace?
What would you dream workspace look like and where would it be?
