The rest of the pictures have my touches on the room - both good and bad. Good because I painted it colors I like, bought new furniture, added feminine touches and feng shui’d it. I have a scented candle, a tabletop water fountain and a little pet bed for the furry friends who drop in to nap. Bad because it's not the neatest office in the world. Yes, I have a tendency to pile things, but that’s a comfort thing. I like it a little messy, though having it right next to the front door means I can't let it get too bad.
My bulletin board holds only positive things and inspiring quotes. It's in the Career area of the Bagua Map (Feng Shui) and reflects the things I do to promote myself and my writing, including a contest win ribbon, and compliments others have given me regarding my work. The basket contains my thumb drives and quotes on stars given to me by Margie Lawson, quotes that spoke to me. I'm rather careful about what I post here. Only my writing craft books and hard copies of my manuscripts go on the bookshelf in that area.
I have a tall bookshelf to the right of the one you see beneath the bulletin board. Yep, those are books teetering on the edge of those shelves. Right now they're two and three deep.
As Feng Shui encourages, I only put things in my office that I like and enjoy seeing. Things such as the Mother Earth poster, a statuette of a loving couple, a graceful vase from a friend (Thanks again, Darcy!), and pictures of friends and family. I didn't set out to collect them, but bears have found their way into my life, most of them from my hubby with various Valentines Day gifts. Those have a place in my office as well.
I won't go into all the things I placed in strategic places, but the one mirror in the room hangs in the relationship area and reflects the Wealth & Prosperity area. That can't be a bad thing, right?
There's just one other thing you should know. Now that I have my own space, I pay bills in there, I plan and plot and check e-mail and set up blog posts and...just about everything but write. Yeah, I don't understand it either. I love my office, love being in there. But most of the time I head across the foyer to the living room, middle of the couch and rest my feet on a big ottoman/coffee table to write. Go figure.
