We do so much at our desks. Study, paint, scrapbook, doodle, craft, write, research... the list can go on and on. I love to see the variety of uses, desktop accessories, and creative storage solutions. During the academic year, my dorm desk is the center of my studies. It's laden with textbooks, note cards, and to-do lists. But during the summer, my desk at home becomes my creative space. I surround it with photos, artwork, quotes, and poems that inspire me to do my writing and make my art. So I guess you could say my desk has a duel personality... and I think it prefers the creative part of the year most. ;)

What about your desk? What's on it? What do you think it reveals about you? And does it frequently change to suit your needs or remain the same throughout most of the year?

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
