After years of working freelance, I was recently presented with a full time opportunity that was just too good to pass up (somehow combining my loves and skills, in a fabulous artistic setting). I’m one week in and loving it so far! There are definitely things that I need to get used to (like having to put clothes on in the am, for example) but the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks (hello health care!)
One of the things I was most excited about, an office with a desk that I don’t have to share with my husband! I’m looking to Etsy to help me add some flair.
• I heart pencils! Something about the act of wearing down the lead and having to resharpen makes me feel like I’ve accomplished a lot. Plus, people are less likely to steal them. Though maybe not with these adorable Washi-covered Pencils (washi is a Japanese paper). $9 for 10
• I’ve got a major thing for pen and pencil cups. Do you know how many times a day you reach for something to write with? Why not keep them in something that will make you smile? I love this Vintage Bowling Mug. I have no idea what a “turkey” is, but I’m sure I couldn’t throw it. And the wackiness of the mug says yes, I may be corporate now – but I’m still indie. $8
• Is it too early too start thinking about vacation? This San Francisco Map Mousepad will remind me where I will most likely be going on my next one! $12
• One of my favorite parts of my new office? A huge corkboard ready to cover with inspirations. How great are these Vintage Button pushpins? The pins may just be the inspirations themselves! $10 for 8
