With all of the hustle and bustle of the season I am craving calm and organized spaces. With my desk taking a little more center stage, I'm longing for happy + bright ways to organize it. I also picked out a couple of gems that would serve as good reminders to chill out. - Lesley

1. Maemae Paperie has the prettiest paper + stamps. I love this one that says. "Please Deliver." 2. Still kicking myself for not snatching up this hedgehog desk planner. 3. Sometimes you have to give yourself your own "pat on the back." 4. A non-traditional way to organize business cards in an array of different sizes. 5. I spotted this affirmation banner in the holiday issue of rue magazine and that it was a perfect reminder. 6. This Kate Spade planner makes me feel instantly less stressed.

do office supplies make you happy, too?


  1. i sit in an office for 9 hours out of each day so anything to cheer up the space is a major plus in my book! love your picks, especially the "it's OK" banner.

  2. i LOVE that hedgehog pad. so cute!

  3. love these! i just might do something like this in the future.
    p.s. I'm hosting a 100 follower giveaway on my blog, if you'd like to join!

  4. #1 & #4 are perfect. i love a roledex. i love putting well-designed business cards in them. it's like a mini-art collection. only if you know cool people!!

  5. ashley - i am right there with you on a roledex! makes me feel like an 80's power woman.
