one of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.

Organization is something that has always eluded me. I live in a constant state of mess. Ever since childhood, my room has been a disaster, even after I've cleaned it. I always envied those who were tidy and organized. These are qualities I aim to force into my own life!

Lately, I have been struck by the idea of organizing my desk area. As is, I never use my desk because there is too much random stuff all over it. So I am looking to fix this! This led me on a search for desk inspiration. If I can make my desk area look half as good as any of these inspiration photos, I think I'll be all set!




Are you an organized person?

  3. I am almost obsessively organized. I think it borders on OCD, sometimes. Still, I usually uncover things I forgot I owned.

  4. I am so organized. When anything is out of place at home, I can't work at all. I'll try to sit down to work on a project and if I know that something is out of place (like a couch cushion has been tossed on the floor by my messy husband), I'll have to go straighten it out before I can work properly. ha

  7. I would absolutely love for my desk to look like the fifth photo down, the one with the iMac and pink flowers. Sadly I doubt my fiancé would be quite so keen! haha! Nice inspiration shots :)

  8. Haha when I met my boyfriend, he thought of me as definately not organized but since we've known each other, I've become more and more organized. Unfortunately I come from a family where my grandmother and mother collect things, so it's been easy for me to continue the circle. But I've put a stop to it, and today I'm actually quite proud of myself :) Too many things just creates chaos.
    I really like the antique desk with the black and white painting hanging above it!
    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog!

  13. I am a messy person. You can find everything on my desk, lip balm, lotions, papers, nuts, candies... :). Those pictures are great, I like the fourth one with a big vase of flowers
