Desktop Accessories

With my new glass top desk, I'm definitely trying to find ways to add more storage.  Before I had all my pens/pencils in the drawer of the desk and now that I don't have a drawer I had to find a new place for them to be easily accessible.  I searched around the house and grabbed this $2 horsehead milk glass piece from my collection.  I love the quirkiness of it and it's just the right size for all my pens.  Now I have an excuse to buy some prettier pens...




the new desk is also causing our mouse not to work, so I need a stylish option for a mouse pad.  Is there such a thing?  Any ideas?

I'm sure if I left it up to my husband we'd have this...


I'd like something that looks not so mousepad-ish, something in this pattern from dani notes would be lovely.  Just can't find anything like it in a mouse pad.


Any suggestions?

I've done something similar to the links above with cork board that has adhesive on one side. I cut the cork board into the shape I wanted, peeled the adhesive liner off, placed it on the fabric of my choice, and then just cut around and flip. I know have a custom mousepad that was incredibly cheep, easy, and looks great. :)

Customize a mouse pad at this etsy shop; there may be others.

I don't have an etsy shop; I just love your blog!
