I cut up two pairs of my husband's jeans and made a desk set.  I didn't just cover an old ugly desk set either, I made the desk set too! It is made from old boxes and cardboard from other projects and a Slim Jim container!

Here is the completed desk set:


Here is a shot of the jeans and the supplies:


Here is a shot of the blotter.  You can tuck paper under the patches in the corners!


Here is a shot of the in/out box:


Here is a shot of the pocket on the side of the in/out box.  Each side of the in/out box has a pocket for extra storage!


Here is a shot of the mouse pad.  Every desk needs a mouse pad!


Here is a shot of the pencil cup.  It's an old Slim Jim container!


I LOVE these craft challenges they really force me to think beyond the same old craft projects I always do!

Thank you all so much for your kind words! If today weren't my last day at my job I might just bring it into work!  Maybe it will make it into my new office next week....

The mousepad and pencil cup are awesome.  What did you use for the filling for the mousepad?

I just used a piece of cardboard.  All I did was trace a standard mouse pad onto a piece of cardboard, cut it out, then cover it with denim using good 'ol Elmer's glue. 

I used Elmer's because I was out of glue sticks for my glue gun. So the mouse pad and pencil cup were assembled using Elmer's.  After a trip to the store to get more "ammo" for my glue gun, the rest were assembled using hot glue.

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection
