Welcome to My Dark Place

Step into my office.

Because today is Favorite Things Friday, I’ve decided to give you a quick tour of one of my all-time favorites. Introducing my desk . . . where the magic happens.

Never to be outdone by a doctor’s office, I keep a full stack on hand at all times:

Want a home office? Here are 5 important points to consider:

1. Stock your office space with the items you need so that precious office time isn’t spent running around the house looking for scissors or pens (or candy).

2. Don’t have an extra room for your office? Look for space under the stairs, in a walk-in closet, in the garage. (My first home office was in the laundry room.)

3. Remember the golden rule: You can mount a shelf just about anywhere.

4. The more you enjoy your office, the easier it will be to return. Make it a pleasant space.

5. You can make a desk out of anything. A door or old countertop material placed over saw horses is sufficient.

Nothing says, “Bliss” like a home office. Enjoy!

    Bliss truly is a home office. Mine is not near as neat as your picture, but I love it all the same. It houses my treasured books, my kindle (when not in use, my computer, and pages of ideas, thoughts, goals, and more. Glad to know I'm not the only person in this world that loves this little section of my home.
