Hi, my name is Becky, my SP one month anniversary is tomorrow. I have an Italy desk calendar; the pictures I love the most (which is the majority, lol) I tack onto my cubicle wall. I also have a dog wall calendar, two motivational magnets, and pictures of my dear mom who suddenly passed away 14 months ago. It's comforting to see her beautiful face, especially when I am stressed.

My office is very laid back. I have an office to myself that had plain white walls. They allowed me to put up 3 very large posters (one on each wall) of beaches and sunsets. A couple of calendars and papers with inspirational quotes and pictures hanging up. I'm able to burn candles so have several scented ones that I like. An angel ornament hangs on the corner of my computer. I have one large window that I decorate for holidays. But I can basically bring in anything I want to give my office some color.

A long way to go…but will get there!

We have two supervisors, both are fun. They let us decorate 'tastefully'. Each of us (8) office workers received perpetual calendars shaped like a light blue house with blocks for numbers and the month from them. I have fun turning it every day and it reminds me what day I'm on! Also have a family calendar with a pic of my siblings and mom and dad on my cork board, a Galileo thermometer, and currently a little snowman figure facing the thermometer checking the temp. I also purchased a minature bunny knick knack to remind me of spring. Small desk fan to cool off after I go for a walk.

Mine is pretty much all business (boring). I have one picture frame with my kids and dog.
I have a fake little tree (desk top) It's very small but I always liked it and took it from each job I had. I also have stuffed beanie kittie cat - since I can't have a cat (allergic) I bought it at a craft fair and since my husband makes fun of it I put it on my desk at work!
I would LOVE to have one of those Shoe tape dispensers - so cool. Maybe someday.
I'm a neat freak too, so I don't like a lot of "stuff" on my desk anyway.

My desk has a few colorful desk supplies and a picture or two but it isn't really decorated to much. I am not a fan of clutter.

I don't personalize my space. I don't like a lot of clutter. Lame, I know. LOL

I too have a cork board that has some of my favorite things & events that I have attended over ther years. Also, my favorite color is Purple & I love Butterflies. So my space is covered with Purple Butterflies & things. But one of my best items is a picture of a woman on an ole southern porch with her feet up sippin on some tea!! Green Tea I imagine ;-) Looks like jut the right amount of wind is blowing through her hair. Now that picture is my ESCAPE when my stress levels build!!

Hi! I'm new but I love this thread!
at my job, i share my desk/work space with 3 other ppl! I'm a receptionist. We all have different things around the desk. I have a picture frame with a sunset picture, my desktop background is a frog, and we all have colorful binders and notebooks. :)

I have a cork board I have slowly but surely covered with things that make me feel good. Ticket stubs, newspaper articles, playbills, thank you cards, wedding invitations, etc etc.

I also have pictures of my kids, a Slovak flag, a city of Kosice flag, an American flag and a Fulham Football Club flag.

I'm just like any other person. I buckle my straight jacket one buckle at a time.

We're not really allowed to personalize alot; our bosses have asked us not to put anything on the walls including post its.

In my office, I have an antique lamp as my own personal touch and a febreeze light thingy; I'm also getting new curtains to make it less "professional" looking. Right now, there's alot of leather and dark cherry wood in here; not complaining, it could be awful, but man oh man, it just isn't me :)

Success one pound at a time...

I have a few small photos, and a few little knick knacks on the shelf, but my office space can be seen from the public area, so I don't have too much. If I had a private office where I could shut the door, I would add more personal items.

Pictures of my kids for one. I haven't yet done this but a friend has gone to www.thinkgeek.com for some fun office toys, some are conservative some are definitely not. Not sure if it's still on there but always wanted to try the USB Rocket Launcher :)

I bought a tank and fish (betta). The first one died right away, but the second appears to be doing well. I love having him here with me... and the bubbling sound of the water is very relaxing.

I've also added the triathlon logo to my computer monitor (next to a picture of my dad and I when he walked me down the aisle).

My office is too conservative for me to show much personal style, but I have a pretty (and neutral) calendar. I also posted a visual reminder of my fitness/weight loss goals right above my monitor so that I see it all the time - I printed out the logo of a race I hope to run and wrote my goal time below it. It's barely two inches wide, but it's enough to keep me on track all day without calling attention to itself.

Hey all,

Just joined and had to comment on this one!

I have pictures of my kitties, a betta in a bowl/desk lamp, and I have a bunch of funky office supplies (lime green stapler, bright orange staple remover, red shoe tape dispenser, etc.) that keep my cubicle quirky and remind me to smile.

Thanks for reading this, I just HAD to chime in!

I'm looking for ideas myself. I've got some family pictures, but that's about it. The last piece of my office furniture was back-ordered, so once I get that in here and a better sense of space I'll be able to find something to put up on the walls. I'm ready to be done with the beige in here!

I have a couple of family pictures on my desktop and behind me is a poster of AT&T Park (home of the World Champion San Francisco Giants). I've also got a bulletin board of photos of my students from the last year and various other posters and maps, but those are the "me" things in my office.

I have some family photos and a small plant. Also a small water fountain for times when I need to just breathe and listen to something soothing. I like the ideo of digital photo too though. During football season I can bring a pom pom in a vase with my team's colors.

I keep my cups, almonds, applesauce and soups in the cabinets. I would LOVE a digital picture frame, and to be able to paint my walls (ha, I don't think either one of those things is going to happen!)...

I also have a digital photo frame on my desk. Additionally, I bought pictures of sailboats for my wall (the wall was bare when I moved into the office) and I keep pictures on my computer desktop. I have pictures of my kids on my credenza too.

Other than pictures, I have some scented oil with diffuser reeds near my computer screen and my radio is always down low on our local light rock station.

Take Care,
Kathy

Not a lot on my desk, because I don't like a lot of clutter. I have some pictures of the kids and our family, and one from my wedding day. Other than that, I am still trying to decide what I want to do! I have a (tiny) office, so I can personalize it, but am taking baby steps.

Hi all,

I am just wondering how you personalize your office space/cubicle/desk.

I personally don't really take pictures often, so all I have right now is a nice pencil holder on my desk and a pretty quote hanigng on my wall: “I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen” by Frank lloyd Wright.

What else could I do? What kind of things do you keep on your desk at work?
