When we bought our house last summer, the walls were dark purple with polka dots, and a High School Musical ceiling fan hung from the ceiling. I promptly painted the walls a nice peachy hue, and we replaced the fan (I'll miss you Troy!). Besides that, I hadn't done much in there. Although I used the office, it was getting unorganized and dusty, and I found myself spending more time on my laptop in our living room.
Last week, I decided enough was enough--we'd shoved Christmas wrapping paper and what-not in there, and it was time to claim my space. Mark my territory. Take back what was mine!
|It's even a "corner office" with windows!|
So I spent an hour moving the stuff that didn't belong there to where it did belong. I used plenty of Windex to make the surfaces sparkle. I even shopped in my basement for framed pictures to hang on the wall.

My old CD's--Usher and Rascal Flatts--kept me humming while I worked. And by the time I hung the last picture and vacuumed, I couldn't wait to start working in there again.
|My new life motto, and a picture of the ocean I took on vacation years ago.|
|I keep my hoard of Staples office supplies in the big closet!|
Candles, cute bins to organize things, and, of course, my bulletin board WITH CHOCOLATE attached all bring me pleasure.
|Yes, my bulletin board has actual chocolate truffles pinned to the board. :)|
|Phone, modem, and writing books--all within easy reach!|
What is your writing space like? Do you love it? If not, is there any way to make it more inviting?
Have a fabulous day!
