Desk Changes I made for my current needs...

  Pictures of the changes I made on my desk this week. I am starting to prepare myself for another "Take your houseback" event. Just FYI its on sale until the next event for $94. If you are needing that extra boost of support, I highly recommend these ladies. (But only at this price) I ordered a few of the workshop wonder items on clearance.

I did end up ordering the paper trays when they reduced to $8.98 (trying to not go back and buy more). Still waiting for those first ones to arrive. (I went back and ordered more) I have found I am using my acrylic blocks more when I do an album retreat and I am planning to re do a few of the past ones so I thought having them front and center for this moment would be handy and I had some items on these little shelves that I'm just not using regularly. I love that I can change this up as I change my needs. Ve
