an ever-changing inspiration board

Something I love about our home office set up is our fabulous 4 in one printer, scanner, copier and fax. The last one we really don't use much of, but the first three, I love to use as much as I can. I'm addicted to creating stuff on Paint and printing them out for the desk's board. Needless to say, we go through a number of inkjet ink cartridges in quite a short period of time. But, I love being able to create things right here. I don't have much free time anyways, so when I do, I cherish trying to be creative and coming up with something fun.

The desk has an ever changing inspiration board of postcards, prints, notes, quotes and other stuff, and I love being able to play around with it every few weeks. I've got lots of small artwork that I've never framed, so this is the best spot for them and since I rotate things quite often, I get to see the things that I had lovingly bought but never used before.

i also hang up inspiring images, quotes, and knick-knacks around my desk area - it instantly can transform a "work area" into a place for inspirations!

Thanks for jaclyn. I agree, these little things transform "work" into something much more beautiful.
