Right above my work-space, I have three little shelves. Sterling silver creamers (bought at a thrift store for $4 each) hold pens and stuff I use for every project.
The blue nesting boxes (Christmas Tree Shop) hold staples/paper clips, small punches, and Cat's Eyes ink... in each respective box.
Shelf to the right: Little white box (found at a yard sale for $1) holds favorite deco scissors & a border punch and little notebook for quick notes. Flowered box (from TJ Maxx or Ross) holds stapler, calculator, and some post-its (these don't go near photos ;) ). Framed photos (frame from Ross, I think) are my two favorite photos of my mom and dad. :) Photos are from before I was born.
My Basic Grey Precision Mat is in the center of my work table. My Ott-Lite is right above it. :)
