Your desk/computer table

What are you surrounded by as you spend your time here on Family Corner?
What's on your desk/computer table?
Is you space neat or do you have a lot of stuff?

My computer sits on a "L" shaped desk and its surrounded by stuff---most of the time its pretty messy due to me

It looks pretty good right now. Lets see....on the right of it sits a pen holder, a notebook with all of my FC stuff and our all-in one printer....etc. To the left is the tower, a rack of CDs and computer game controller, then a 2 tier rack for paper that holds our cell phone, a stapler and a 3-hole punch. I have a file cabinet on underneath each of the desk too----we wont even go there!!

My computer desk is in a small room off our kitchen. I am surrounded by cookbooks and stitcheries that I have done over the years. And usually there is a live cat asleep on a nearby chair or right on the computer table :-)

My desk is also an L shape. My keyboard sits right in front of me, with my copyholder in front of the keyboard. To the left is a somehwat empyt spot, to put my visual guides for my work. My monitor sits to the right of my keyboard, with a window in back of the monitor, so I can let my daughter go out to play and still watch her. My tower sits to the side against the wall. My keyboard, monitor, and tower look more like a train going around a turn!!

But, my desk is always messy. As I play, pay bills, and work at my desk!!

I have a large computer desk that is messy. There are papers on the top shelf that I need to file, a small clock, a ceramic bear that hubby gave me, a shell from Hawaii and a box of get well and thinking of you cards that I use for a prayer group that I am in. Sometimes when someone is very ill or in the hospital they will request a card shower for them.

On the lower shelf are reference books like a spelling dictionary, thesaurus, etc.

My printer is to the left on the main desk portion. On the right is a small set of plastic drawers for pens, paper clips, etc.

On the lower left is a telephone and address book, and some computer paper for making greeting cards. In the drawer below that is ready made computer stationery. (I write lots of letters).

My hard drive sits on the lower right. I left a few things out so this would not be too long and you wouldn't think I was too messy. LOL

Gee, can anyone guess what is on my PC desk and surrounding me,LOL. Lets see my mouse pad is shaped like a teddy bear (a friend made it for me) I have a teddy bear clock that sits on top of pc, 2 teddy bear book ends that are holding up notebooks and my PC for Dummies book,lol.I dont have too much on the desk except the PC and a few notepads and hardrive to my left. Its also in our bedroom to the side of the window seat at our window which has bears sitting on it and one is peeking out the window that is covered with teddy bear suncatchers.
My printer is to my right and the tv is kind of behind me to the left which is always on. My phone is next to bed , but within reach if I stretch aways.Now my desk drawers are a different story I need to spend some serious time organizing them. Mostly filled with scrapbook things and stationary and envelopes. Oh and the bottom drawer of my desk has markers and scratch paper for my GD's when they are here and once I hid some kit kat bars there so dh wouldnt eat them all and my GD found them and ate them, so I didnt get them anyhow,LOL. Serves me right for hiding them in the 1st place.
Hugs Sandie

I've also got an L shaped desk. I wondered for a while if it was going to be too big, but of course as I've cluttered it with all kinds of stuff, necessary and unnecessary, it has collected quite the mess. I've got a few pics of my family on the desk, a cd case, a couple of speakers, a few coasters, a BUNCH of papers/bills, and some random things I've picked up on vacations, etc. I'm thinking of getting a new desk. I've had mine for a bit of time and I could probably use a smaller one, might help me keep organized. I picked up a new chair from staples last month and got a pretty good deal. Maybe I'll start looking again there and see what I can come up with.

Even though it's cluttered right now, I really like my desk. It's very homey to me.

What is on my computer desk? WOW!
Besides the computer, a couple of baskets with lots of junk in them, pics of the kids, cd tower full of cd's, note pads, scissors, nail polish, candles, a bamboo plant, a cow mug with candies in it and my cell phone.

I think there is more, but too numerous to mention.
