Oh the fun of working from home! My friends sometimes ask how I have the ability to get as much work done on my blog and company as I do (clearly, people, I neglect my kids all day long.) The truth is that it’s not easy and often times I’m switching from changing a dirty diaper to speaking on the phone with a rep about a project, then referreeing a fight between the kids all in a matter of minutes, and sometimes all at once. On the days my shift-working husband was home, he would tell me to go into a room and close the door to work. The thing was, I had no such room that was a comfortable working space since sitting on our bed with my laptop wasn’t going to cut it.
In May we finally finished the renovations on our basement spare room and I now have a room, or a corner of it at least, to call my own!
We put in flooring and then painted the walls a beautiful blue color, then accented it with white baseboards and window trim. My desk is perfect for my laptop, phone and notepad and of course there’s a printer nearby!
The printer you see there is my new HP Photosmart 6510 e-All-in-One Printer!
Some of my favorite features of this printer include a 3.5″ touch screen, two-sided printing, templates for calendars and more from HP Quick Forms, wireless printing (which I love love love!) and the ability to even print from my iPhone or iPad with AirPrint™.
whine for ask my husband to hook up new electronics while I watch (otherwise there’s the risk of things being thrown!) This printer install was super-easy because of the touch-screen and on-screen displays. Unsure how to install the ink cartridges? One touch gives you an on-screen demonstration video on how exactly to do it! Setting up the wireless was easy too with easy to follow instructions and touch-screen ease.
I often have to print, sign, scan and email documents and this printer makes the entire process quick and easy too. Oh, and it prints photos beautifully! Really, I can’t find anything not to rave about with this printer – I’m quite happy in my little space!
