When you surround yourself with pretty things, you tend to be more creative. This is the mantra that I have lived by over the last few years so when I set out to start an office line of products, I knew they had to be a bit out of the ordinary...oh and very pretty!
It took me a few minutes to decide what I really wanted to do with these pencils I found on her Etsy shop. I was so excited for their arrival it inspired me to clean up my desk area/guest bedroom.
For the record, I am NOT creative at all. I wish I was and I've been giving it the ole college try. If you saw my "dining room table" photo awhile back, my desk looked 10 times worse. I purged this past weekend and got rid of so much crap. These are all the writing utensils that sit on my desk now. Don't worry there is a gallon bag full of pens, highlighters, and pencils in the desk drawer just in case.
I picked up the ball small mason jar at Double Take, which is a huge consignment shop here in Santa Fe. It was $3.00. The other two glass jars I've had for years and used to hold tea lights (so over it). They've been sitting in a cabinet. I also had a bag of all these different colored paper clips and holders ect. I decided to pick out two colors and bam. I stuck the pencils in the mason jar and that finished it. Clutter free desk, and maybe one I actually want to sit down and do work at.
What's your at home office or desk situation organization trick?
