In actuality, I have a very nice private office and a predecessor who has graciously stayed on to train me as well as tidy the place before she throws me to the deep end. There's a full-sized fridge in my small department's kitchen and nobody has taken my food by mistake so far. Win, win, win on all fronts.
But I have never had an office so organized, so sterile and so in need of personalization. All
others had files and folders stacked to the ceiling, probably to hold up the walls up (non-profit charm). So while I still have clean office smell on my brain, I will be devoting the coming week to preparing myself and my office to co-habitate in style with a few simple office related projects.
Today's tutorial: ID Badge Holder that isn't gross! No, really! Not even a lanyard.
Old "pearl" necklace or a few pearl beads- anything you have a dozen of
A bit of scrap ribbon, suede cord or necklace chain
A fabric flower-one you've prepared from chiffon scraps, purchased or re-purposed
Needle, thread, some basic jewelry findings.
Step 1). Grab your supplies
Step 2). String pearls, attach to ribbon, attach flower and pin your ID badge to the side.
*Notice left out my actual ID photo? I even had a chance to look it over and instead told the ID person that I was sure she knew what she was doing. Big mistake, trust no one to take a good picture of you.
