I saw this on a "blog ideas" list: What's on my desk right now. I don't know about you, but I like this kind of revealing little slice-of-life story.
I think it's a fascinating list.
A television and accompanying DVD player.
A desk lamp.
Multiple piles of pictures.
Tons of beads, stones, wire, and findings--all the bits and pieces that go along with making jewelry.
Assorted hand tools (far too numerous to name individually).
Two pairs of reading glasses.
A hand drill.
A letter opener.
Cheese flavored Chex mix.
A patchouli/vanilla candle.
An extension cord.
A dust cloth.
Three polishing cloths.
Three different piles of varying heights, of papers I need to read.
A ruler and a cloth tape measure.
Bills to be paid.
Jewelry supply catalogs.
My cell phone.
Obviously, my desk is my work space. Once in awhile I take a day and purge all the piles and pieces and organize the tools, but it's been awhile since I've done that. But hey, I can assure you that when I need something, I know just which "pile" to dive into to find it! LOL.
