What I See When I Sit at My Desk
Besides my big, fat computer screen I have lots to look at. I am one of those people who clutters up their space a bit with personal mementos and I have a good sized, L-shaped desk, overhead cabinets and material covered walls perfect for push pining things ups. I have pictures from magazines, copies of illustrations from children's books, photos of my family and friends, three little stuffed animals, many papers of all shapes, sizes, colors, books, my phone, other office supplies, art projects, sometimes food or a beverage, a clock... I'm pushing it. I think I have to clean up a little, but it makes me feel comforted to have stuff around me that is mine. And I never have problems putting my hands on what I need. I know some offices have a strong "no clutter" policy. In theory it is sort of like that here, but I maintain this image as "creative" and it seems that explains all the stuff! My home is much less cluttery. Maybe I don't need it there, because it is home. What do you guys think? Do you guys like a tidy desk/office? Or do you wallow in your things?
