There's a room in our new house that Simon and I love to hang out in and spend most of our time. The office! Not being able to agree on the set up and refusing to share we ended up opting for a desk each which is a pretty fantastic setup. It allows us to spend the evenings together, me sitting at my blogging desk frantically typing away and him sitting at his desk gaming with his friends.
My blogging desk is my pride and joy and I love gathering bits and bobs to make it pretty and functional. I'm a definite office geek and it's great having a little space in the house that's all mine.
My latest obsession is my new organiser from Qwerkity, a site full of the most fantastic gift ideas when you want something a little fun and different.
Made of white wood and featuring three little drawers and thirteen different sized compartments I've had great fun stuffing this full of stationery.
Giving me the perfect excuse to go on a massive haul in Smiths and Paperchase (I may have gone overboard with the coloured Sharpies and did I really need those rose gold paperclips?) I now have pretty much anything I could ever need in easy reach.
I have to admit I'm spending quite a lot of time just gazing at my desk organiser, there's something about seeing all my stationery together in one place that makes my geeky heart sing with joy, I'm also quite smug about how beautiful and tidy my desk is looking when Simon is frantically scrabbling around his work area for a pen.
I'm thinking of ordering myself another one of these for my dressing table, it'd be the perfect place to store makeup and I also think it would be rather brilliant in our hallway as a storage place for the bits and bobs that seem to keep spreading themselves all over the house (it'd be great to solve the never ending problem of "where are my keys?")
With Christmas approaching why not sneakily leave the gifts for her section of the website open on your computer!
Let me know if my new desk organiser fills you with as much geeky joy as it does me!
