Last year I graduated to a wide format monitor for my office and I instantly fell in love! So since I have just finished my new Studio ( I promise to post pictures soon!) I have more room at my desk. So, what could be better than one fabulous large monitor to work on? Two monitors of course…..
The Hubby and I went to Frey’s yesterday and I picked up a new friend for my monitor. Now I have twins. They are not identical though. The new one is smarter and brighter than the old one. ( I know you are not supposed to have favorites among your children but I can’t help myself)
Now I can put all of my tools and files one one monitor and work in Photoshop on the other without having to constantly rearrange my open files. Hallelujah! It is so fantastic I can’t even tell you. The Hubby accused me of building an evil lair from which I can dominate the world. I do feel a bit like Doctor Evil with all of my gadgetry surrounding me now.
Adding to the family doesn’t come without compromise though. I now have an unbelievable huge gaggle of cords, plugs, hubs, connections and drives. No matter how hard I try I cannot make them look good on my desk. It bothers me like you can’t believe. After all I like to make things look pretty and gross metal hardware and yucky black wires don’t fit that mold.
The cords on the floor are an even bigger problem (please don’t look at my dust – I need to sweep)
But just like with my real kids if I just look at the all of their good attributes and how adorable they are I can put up with the bad.
Stay tuned for a tour of the new Studio.
