what's on my desk?

Here is my little rendition of the "What's in my bag?" feature.
My desk is way more exciting then my bag and seriously I feel like I have four different bags going at one time (purse, teacher bag, crochet bag, laptop bag, etc.)
I love my little creative space, even when it's messy. It's fun for me to see all of the little aspects of my life at this moment, scattered across this space.
Ok, here we go...

(you may have to click on it to see it all better)

1.  My sweet little fawn collection!  They live on my desk and watch over me as I create :)  I love them a lot.  In the Pyrex bowl above them, i have a bazillion tubes of acrylic paint.

2.  That is four different pencil/pen holders.  I'm a tad bit obsessed.  We had a German exchange student for a couple of weeks and she called them "rolies" and I have loved rolies ever since.  One is filled with journaling pens, one is filled with mechanical pencils, one is sharpies, and one is fountain pens.

3.  I scored an entire bag of littlest pet shops at a garage sale for $1.50.  I have a huge collection of these in my art classroom and these have yet to make it there...maybe tomorrow :)

4.  12 gorgeous granny squares finished for Pita's afghan!! loving it.

5.  My instax wide...loving it too!

6.  That is my new laptop and my skype conversation with my BFF Lindsay :)

7.  Bernie- my lovely sewing machine.  She is sooo ready to get cracking on some fall sewing projects.

8.  My new pack of stationary from Paper Source via Borders.

9.  My "I heart fall" journal

10.  Adam and I received this adorable ceramic jack-o-lantern as a wedding gift.  The mouth is cut out to say MacLean.  I love it so much!!

11.  Letters from my dad.  We write letters back and forth to each other at least two times a week.  Checking my mail for one of his letters is the highlight of my week.  I love you dad!!!!

12.  My little tool chest with all of my journaling supplies!  I got it from an estate sale because I loved the color and the rusty texture. It's perfect!!!

Ok, that is it!! That my friends, is what is on my desk!!!  You should play along and show us all what is on your desk at the moment :)  If you decided to do it, please leave me a comment here on this post and link me so I can check it out!!
