I missed Day 1 of the challenge, which was the junk drawer, but I actually did that a couple weeks ago so I'm not behind. Look at me being ahead of the class. Not.
Today's challenge: Clear Off Your Computer Desk.
Here's my before. I'm so happy I used the flash so every grimy, nasty fingerprint on my computer was illuminated in full glory.
Yes, I had a paint can on my computer desk, complete with paint brush in a baggie.
I used it before Christmas to paint a first coat on the trim of the "big stupid piece of furniture I bought from Goodwill which will be awesome if I ever finish it." Gotta love those projects.
While cleaning off my desk today, I may or may not have gotten sidetracked into putting a second coat on.
The paint can might still be sitting on the floor in my office because I might sand and put the third coat on tomorrow. I did remember to wash the brush this time, though, just in case I flake out.
I cleaned out a seagrass organizer I already had and filled it with letter sending supplies. Stamps, envelopes, a notebook for jotting down ideas, mailing labels, and a nice fat stack of cards, including some handmade ones I had forgotten about. The compartment on the left is for my usb cords and computer remote.
And with all that stuff moved, a little Pledge action, and turning on a lamp, my desk is much more inviting.
Which is why I'm sitting at it, blogging at midnight, instead of sleeping.
The rest of the room is still not looking too hot, so I can't wait to see what tomorrow's challenge is. It's not too late if you want to join me!
