All empty and ready for me to attack with color and fun!
If you follow me elsewhere, you’ll know that I finally finally finaaaaallly got my own office complete with a brand spankin’ new desk. I moved all my crap from my old desk into my new office yesterday morning and it was a huge project. I had accumulated way more than anticipated, so I had to get rid of a lot of it to make room for my new deskcessories (desk accessories). It’s a work in progress for sure, but I wanted to share some of the cute new additions to my desk.
My stark white desk made it very easy to add lots of color. For the whole office I decided on a Peacock color scheme: blues, greens, and purples. I wanted the desk to be very simple with little fun additions here and there.
I loooove the Clear Magazine Files for all of my bright notebooks and folders. They help me see everything while still being sleek. I already had the glass containers for my Sharpies and my Pens/Highlighters from the Dollar store. I also added that little fancy black D from Hobby Lobby.
Those glass bottles were on sale at Hobby Lobby here and here.They come in a variety of colors, so they were easy to accent to the room. I bought some Peacock feathers to place in them to tie in the theme. I picked up the precious silver owl for a mere $5 for extra character. Those little shot glasses are perfect for thumbtacks and paperclips.
I love having a place to put my envelopes and favorite stationary that coordinates with my magazine files. I found the Mini Message Sorter in black on the Staples website, but I found the clear in store.
I’m excited with the progress so far! There’s a lot more to be shown from my office including a few precious DIY projects I worked on, so stay tuned!
I love love love pumpkins! It’s been a family tradition since I was so little that we decorate or carve pumpkins. Most of y’all also have that super fun tradition. Every year it’s always a fun challenge to out do your pumpkin for the year prior and of course go above the other members of your family. I come from a very crafty and artistic family. Just this morning my mom and I were comparing ideas for our pumpkins this year, so I thought about how perfect of a post that would be. These are some of the ideas I’m toying around with that I wanted to share with you guys. I can’t wait to share my finalized pumpkin and those of my mom and brother.
This year has been full of changes, but one of the biggest projects I was forced to take on was moving into a new house and a new room after 7 years in the same room. Fortunately for me, I always knew how I wanted my room to look. I had a vision. The vision was white, fluffy, and very cupcake. I wanted everything to be white with pops of Tiffany Blue and mirrored and girly. The challenge was finding the perfect pieces to create the look I wanted and keeping it contained in a 10 x 10 room. That was in April, it’s now September and I’m very pleased with how everything came together. There’s nothing I love more than climbing into my bed at night and just being so happy in my room. I wanted to break down some of the major pieces because they really were all very accessible and inexpensive.

I have to give a lot of credit to my mom. She did a lot of research too and we were constantly bouncing ideas back and forth. Everything came together and was exactly what I hoped it would be. It’s very romantic and dreamy and me.
