Spot the difference...

My desk in Virginia:



And my desk at home (this morning):



So New Years Resolution Number One is to DECLUTTER!

And my writing prompt for today is ... My Real Name Is ...

I'm such a voyeur - I love looking at peoples desks. Have fun de-cluttering, you never know what interesting little scraps of paper or pictures or words you might find!

hmmm....interesting contrast. both ways seem to produce good work. desk at residency looks austerely American. desk in England looks fun English.
here's two prompts;
ring around the moon
i hope the dogs don't wake the neighbors

From JoniB: I'm an American and my desk looks just as messy as yours. I think it has more to do with knowing the desk wasn't yours to mess up in the first place. I'm slowly decluttering my spaces, too.
Loved the prompts!

Welcome back! De-cluttering is so therapeutic, especially shredding unwanted paper. Also, I have an urge to throw all my clothes away and start again - this is unlikely to happen as I can't afford to replace them so I will keep the wardrobe door shut,ignore the mess and be content with shredding.

Me too, Jem - but that's my problem, looking at other people's desks are so much more interesting than working at my own!
Not sure about fun, W8, but like the prompts, and thanks JoniB - am determined to get it decluttered by the end of the day!
Happy shredding, kathryn!

Bet yours isn't as messy as mine (even though I know where everything is!).

Welcome back.

Nik.

De-clutter? Not sure where the fun is in that. I quite enjoy the never ending mystery of searching for things hidden under the heaps of paper etc....

My therapy is the spa but am sure you have done that too.

Enjoy!

Caroline, I have tidied - just for you! Because the problem, Nik, is that I can never find anything. And while I'm looking I get sidetracked.
Alex, I'd like to see your shed - are you like CJ? Do you have your own still in there?
I'm a spa addict when I can be, Holy Moses, as I think you've probably guessed!

Alex said...

I do have a small cider press in the shed.

I am SO coming to your shed, invited or not.
