I've always sat but now I'm thinking about trying to find a desk I can stand at....

I'm hesitant to change my entire area though if 'm not going to like it! eek! I suppose I could always get a high stool to balance it out if I need to sit too.....

Stand! I'm a stander.
I even prefer to stand to prep food, cut, etc.

Sit for sure! It would hurt my back if I stood all the time

It hurts me to stand for any length of time, so definitely sit!

I sit down and scrap. I tend to get up a lot and leave my project and come back and start again though. It's like I can't sit still lol

stander. An island (a portable kitchen island) is great to stand at, love mine. I have a cabinet underneath, can add baskets to the side, so works very well.

I like to stand. I had my husband's friend build me a high table perfect for standing at. I am going to buy a stool with a back on it for occasions when I may want to sit.

When I go to my friend's 4 day crop weekends we all sit. It's ok but I like the freedom to move around.

I sit while actually putting pages together, but I get up a lot otherwise. It's hard for me to sit still for a long time, so I get up every half hour or so. Then, I'll come back to my work. Occasionally, I will stand, but it's usually only if in stamping.

Oh, I stand. My awesome hubby built me a table out of two unfinished cabinets and some plywood. I can stand and create comfortably. But I also have a chair that is taller so I can sit too if I feel like it. But standing is great!

It depends what I'm working on. Sometimes I sit, sometimes I stand.

I have a chair at my counter height table, but I have to stand when I actually DO something. I sit to think, but stand to work.

For most of the process I sit. However, I do stand when I need to get a border on really straight or something similar that needs fine tuning!

I'm a shorty so often I kneel on the chair. I get tired standing and while ideally I'd sit but I need to see my work area from above to get things straight...and ideally my feet would touch the floor so I can drag the wheelie chair to get various supplies!

I'm always up for this and that so I stand. I even moved my chair to the other side of the desk.

Today I was sitting because of back pain and I fell out of the chair reaching for something!

Both. Desk height by my computer for sitting, bar height at family dining table for standing. It depends on what is happening at the moment (reading, internetting, spraying, sticking, cricut-cutting, printing, etc).

I've always stood to scrapbook.

I have a counter height table, in the middle of my scrapbook room. I love to walk up to it from all sides & work on projects.

A few years ago, my DH gave me a counter height table for my birthday. I LOVE it! I still have a computer desk I can sit at, but do most of my scrapping at my big table. Much better for my back to stand and move around as needed. I rarely scrap for hours at a time, though. I had a stool because I thought I'd like to be able to sit, but it just got in my way.

Both! I usually start out sitting,but I always eventually end up standing. It just gives me a better view of my page, esp. if I'm trying to get something straight.

I do both! I start sitting, then stand, then sit...I feel I can judge the arrangement of my layout when I stand, but I sit when I do little detail work.

Depends on the day.
If my knees are okay, I stand.
If they hurt, I sit

A bit of both. I have a stool for when I get tired of standing. Usually I have to be all over the place for materials, so standing is my most natural state.
