Is Corporate decorating killing anyone else?

I just got a great new job with my very own office. My very own ugly as sin office. Blue/grey mottled carpet, no windows, shades of beige acrilic target art. Silk fern. The works.

The boss has givn me permission to punch the place up a bit- but i figure- I cant be the only one!

And i was thinking- we may not be able to recon file cabinets for each other, but there are a lot of little things that could realy bring an office to life! mouspads, modest wall art, mugs, pen holders, staplers, file holders, day planners, signs, magnets, candy jars (or boxes- for that secret stash  Wink ), little boxes for fubber bands and staplers..the list goes on and on.

We could all post a picture of out troubled workspace, and talk a little about what we need, whats acceptable in our workplace (obviously people would need to play carful attention to this! There are some things you cant get away with in every office), and what our asthetic is like.

So many jobs these days require an office, even if its not the only place you work- anyone else interested in getting a craftster infusion for their workplace?

I love this idea!  My work space is... kinda drab.  But I do have a great view, even though I'm not next to the window.

Look on the bright side.  You have an office.  I'm in an open-plan office.  Only the really big cheeses get private offices.  It does foster communication, but it makes it a lot easier for people to sneak up on me while I'm on craftster Sad

shhhh Wink

My job is feast-or-famine.  I usually have either a lot on my plate, or very little.  As long as I do my job when it's "feast" time, management doesn't really mind if I do some personal web surfing during the "famines" - as long as I don't do anything blatant like pull out my knitting.

I still jump when someone sneaks up on me, though.  I've had some bad experiences in the past, that I won't go into.  Let's just say Firefox tabs are my friends... one click and I'm back on the intranet.  Wink

Oh man, I have to say that working in kites makes my office not drab at all, the biggest problem here is that I work with a bunch of men who are HUGE SLOBS and apparently assume that I'm here to pick up after them.

Haha, NO.

I'd join this swap if I could get someone to mail herself here for a weekend and help me clean our office. THEN we could decorate it. Smiley

Can it be "I hate my job and hate my office swap".  Aside from that I like the idea.  We'll see what my crafting schedule is like when this happens.  I almost forgot I have to craft for christmas too (may as well start thinking about this now).

I don't have an office - I've got a walk up desk. It is pretty liberal around here about decorating - my boss brought me the vintage pink flamingo that hangs out beside my desk. I would give anything for a huge pimped out rolodex!

I live in cube city in my job, not much privacy.  I don't need a rolodex (though I had previous jobs where it was needed), but I love the idea of a pimped out rolodex.  Great idea.
