WOYWW 371 - Desk Delight

Planner girls talk about reaching "planner peace" -- basically meaning they finally find happiness with their planner situation, instead of feeling like the new planner they just bought is not working out every two months and then spending more money on a newer planner when the expensive one they bought in the first place has months left in it. Ridiculous, right? Why are they not happy with their planners all the time? I don't know. Well, I didn't buy a new desk. My desk is actually a big ole vintage wooden desk with vintage cubby shelves on top. I grew unhappy with it. I didn't dump it though. But what I did do was paint it all white. And then the other day I rearranged and organized everything again.

Thus - desk delight! My new term I made up.

I actually blogged about this yesterday too. So I won't go into it all again. But my "pretty box" organizing system on the side is working out very well. And having that little box full of things I use all the time is great because it stays handy and yet those bits and bobs are not constantly cluttering my desk. It is the "beautiful" box on top there and can slide right in and out, so I have constant access to it.
Lovely bits and bobs that would normally be all over my desk.

So today I had the planner out, and was looking at a tag I made awhile back...thinking of making more tags.

However, I'm busy with food this month for my daughter's cast and crew on a webseries she is shooting. Here's what happened to the box after I made the chicken for last night.

He has "box bliss." Have a wonderful day!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch

  3. Cute cat - they do love boxes, don't they? Your organising looks great. I love using photo boxes for storage. You can get them on sale really cheap here and they have lovely designs

  5. Cats are so funny. If you wanted him to go in a box he would probably run a mile. They are so good at making use of objects which you would least expect. Happy crafty woyww, Angela x 23

  9. I laughed out loud when I saw your puss cat in that box!! As Shaz said, what IS it with cats and boxes?? Did he leave any chicken for you?!
    How lovely that you've been having a good repurposing and sorting session, there's nothing like it to make you feel better, I reckon. Your boxes full of lovely stash are so pretty, you really have a knack for making things look gorgeous!
