what’s on my desk


I have been using the ikea micke desk for more than 3 years now for all things I do that require a desk (sewing, quilling, painting, knitting, crochet-ing, net surfing, etc..). It’s the basic model without the side drawer.

micke desk

Depth: 50 cm Height: 75 cm Width: 73 cm

Over the years, my table top have become crowded and the working area is now more smaller.. but it all still works out for me :).. since Gio’s table is just next to mine, my things sometimes find their way over there.. 😉

This is how my desk currently looks like ( Yes. I cleaned up a little… ok ok a lot. :P):

The oldest items aside from the desk:

1. Ikea desk pad which have turned yellow because of a few paint by numbers “accidents”…  🙂 (Messy crafter represent!!)

2. White Ikea desk lamp – I forgot how much but the light stand now is $12 (Hemma lamp base).

3. My laptop 13″ sony laptop with my small prolink mouse.

Other items:

mats that I always have on the table…

notebook for ideas.. it’s where I write down songs I hear from the radio, blog ideas, craft ideas, etc. Water brush – still practicing on painting. Paper scraps and origami letters – surprise blog series/entry..maybe.. hehe. Sheep mousepad – bought from popular bookstore -super cute!

For the next items, I’ve decided to group them together (to make things easier for me 😛 )…
