I think I mentioned in my post last Saturday that it’s mid winter break, which has apparently really messed up my blogging schedule, and I’m sorry for that. I think that next week I should be back on my feet and posting only on Wednesday and Friday.
Anyway, onto the topic at hand.
Today I want to talk about something I have experienced at least twice in the six months… I have really weird organization kicks every couple of months that seem to start in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep, and continue into the next couple of weeks.
It usually starts with looking at cool ways to organize my desk, and then progresses into full on craziness. I start wanting everything in my life to be organized. I begin changing things and reorganizing, wanting to start bullet journalling or thinking I need yet another calendar in my room…
So I’ve decided to share with you what my desk area is currently looking like, and then maybe in a few months I can look back on this and realize my room looks totally different
I have a white drafting table for a desk and a tall blue spinny chair to sit on. On my desk are all the materials I use most, including colored pencils, pens and pencils, sharpies, paint brushes, water color pencils and gray markers. I also have 3 small containers (on the right) with miscellaneous supplies like glue sticks, pencil sharpeners and tacks. The flat tray on the far left holds my current sketchbook, pencil case (for school) and any important documents.
Above my desk is my monthly calendar and a clipboard with important sticky notes such as things I need to buy, a to do list, and goals. I hand lettered my calendar (and yes, I know that February isn’t in the center… it’s bugging me to) . Important things like stuff I need to do or events I’m going to are colored with watercolor so they stick out. The boxes and outline of the calendar I made on word. (You can get it here).
Beside my desk on one side is a window as well as these two drawer things. On the left is a wooden shelf thing that I use to store paper, notebooks, and sketchbooks. Next to that is my main method of storage, a set of plastic drawers on wheels. It holds tape, paint, markers, pens and the extent of my art and office supplies.
On the other side of my desk is this board. Sadly I have to cover a couple of things for personal safety, but the rest is either stuff I drew/hand lettered, found on the internet, or it was just laying around while I put this together and I thought it would look nice.
I hope you enjoyed that tour through my workspace, and maybe now you’re inspired to organize your life (but don’t go to crazy).
