Desk Area Update

On Saturday, I posted about making one desk in my work area nice and pretty – original post here.

Later that day, I did put up some prints just to get the corkboard started.

Here’s where I got up to.


The art work are all free printable downloads and here is a list of them.

  1. “dreams don’t work unless you do.” by Salt and Paperie
  2. Bear Hug by Lena Dor
  3. Ferris Wheel postcards by Oh So Lovely via Paisley Vintage
  4. Wheels on the Bus by Kinderkamer Stylist
  5. Love glitter by Love from the Oven
  6. “do more of what makes you happy” by Beauty & the Beard
  7. “Light up my world” by Charlotte Ananbar
  8. Flamingo by Simply {Darr}ling


Once I started to print a few, I customised the sizes to fit the spaces left on the corkboard. Other items in the picture include picture ledge, 3 battery operated lights, cork boards, wooden figure and circle cork mat all from IKEA. Lamp, candle and tulips in vase from K-mart, wooden house from Cotton On, twine by The Wrapping Paper Co., 365 Notebook from Kikki K, tree jewellery organiser from Dymocks Stationery and nail polishes by Chi Chi Cosmetics from Target. Necklaces are my own (well the one on the right is my Mum’s that I am yet to return LOL).

Please note, mention of retail brands are not sponsored and are of my own opinion.

So getting there. If you have any favourite free printable, let me know in the comment section below.

Oh P.S. I took down the calendar from the corkboard because I was taking it on and off to write on it, so I just keep it on my desk.

Okay, chat to you later!


Desk Area

I have officially signed off the “creating” schedule. So now concentrating on “beautifying” my creative space and have been spending a bit of time today on Pinterest checking out the beautiful desk spaces out there – you can check out my pins here

I’ve rearranged my cork boards so that 3 are above my “looking nice” desk (this won’t be my actual work desk – that one is just to the right of this that house the big mess). This one will be the one I hopefully keep nice and neat for any picture backdrops.


So now I’ve been looking around the place to find things to use as little displays. I’m not very good at styling so am really using my pins for lots of inspiration.

I was looking for a free printable 2016 calendar to add to the corkboard and came across Kate’s version from Small Paper Things

I love how she uses washi tape to show length of certain events. I’ve printed December’s one and getting January’s ready for a couple of weeks’ time (adding my own special events on it)

Additional prints I will add as I go along so it’s a bit more organic rather than forced!

In the meantime, wishing you all the best over this holiday season.

Merry Christmas!
