After organizing my stationary drawer, my next task was to organize my desk area.
Well I don't really have a desk. I do all my blogging and colouring of my images here in the living room.
I know what your thinking, this looks nice and tidy.....this is the after picture, teehee.
Here is the before photo.
Let me share with you some of the things in this photo.
Just so you know I was working on a Design Team card so that is why so much stuff is out.
From left to right
-Red binders are my Project 365
-The plastic bag is full of odd socks, my girls were suppose to go through. Which I am just going to throw in the garbage soon.
-The brown boxes hold my current month business tickets that I am working on.
-I see my video camera.
-Container of my 6x6 paper packs.
-Lap desk with glasses
-Oh ya and a Coca-Cola, teehee.
Here is the same view with everything nice a clean and put where it should be. I leave my laptop here all the time, as this is where I blog and search the web.
That pink string attached to my laptop...that is my ear buds (head phones). I leave them in my laptop all the time. That way if a blog has music, I can't hear it and it doesn't bother anyone else when we watch television. Plus if I want to check out a YouTube video, again it doesn't bother anyone, I just put the ear buds in :)
See how considerate I am ;)
I put the lapdesk under my laptop. If I colour or do my book work I will just take it out from under the laptop to use it.
My dad gave me this old school desk. I use it as a side or end table.
I keep my camera, camera cord and a note pad there.
And a secret stash of chocolate...Busted, lol. Picked up this treat when we were across the border ;)
Here is the same space a bit more organized.
I had one of these containers from the dollar store. I think it may be a remote control holder.
I put my camera cord, flash drive, cheater glasses and I will put my camera in there as well.
I keep this desk lamp here as well.
When we are watching movies at night, everyone likes to watch them in the dark. So, because I am considerate, I will turn on this desk lamp and focus the light on the image that I am colouring. This way I am not interrupting the movie watchers.
Notice the chocolate stash is gone....ya I ate it, lol.
So there you have it, my organized so called "desk area".
Some tips to organizing your area.
1. Remove-Take everything off of your area/desk
2. Clean- use some cleaner and wipe the area down
3. Sort- Put all like items together.
4. Purge- Get rid of papers and such that don't belong.
5- Organize- Put away and organize the remaining items.
Is your junk/stationary drawer still organized?
Now go and clean off your desk :)
Onto My Day:
We stayed home all day.
Wayne worked all day on his paper work.
I finished my card for my Design Team. I had such a cool layout I had drawn out last week for this one, but it wasn't going to work out. Still happy with how it turned out though.
Kristy set up the trampoline, lets hope that is the end of the snow :(
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a creative Sunday :)
