What's On Your Workdesk?

I found a great blog called Stamping Ground and the owner Julia Dunnit invented "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?"  Basically it is an opportunity to make new friends and share what your desk looks like at this point in the week.  A great group of bloggers link up on Stamping Ground with a post and photo about their work desk.  I followed the links a few times and really enjoyed meeting new people and seeing their cool desks.  Now I want to join in and share my desk.

My desk is pretty clean.  I took the photos last night so they are a bit dark and my darn lamp just wants to super shine.  You can see my slinky collection under the lamp.  I made a new mini lightbox that I can take anywhere and use while I sit.  I am still learning how to use it, but am having fun experimenting with different objects.  I am making a new tree, I use a little white tray so I can see the dropped beads easily.

My desk top is made of glass, that's why the surface looks odd, there are reflections and you can see through it.  I must be the last person that has black desk accessories, It seems everyone has white everything.
I cleaned an egg carton to use as storage for my tiny trees.  I am taking new photos of them with the light box.  I wish I could fit my desk in the lightbox;).

I took the last two photos using my mini light box.  They are much better then the photos I was getting before.

If you are visiting from Work desk Wednesday, Welcome and Thanks for stopping by.

I hope your week is going well.  I have family coming in this weekend and we are getting excited.  I will post about the visit on Friday.

I did see some very elegant and classy dark ones as well.Keep smiling and creating, thanks for popping by.
