I needed a new pencil holder for my classroom desk and decided to make one myself. I used self hardening clay and acrylic paint.

Chances are, if you are a designer or any type of creative person that works primarily indoors and at a desk, you probably know how important it is to have a nice space to work in at home. Even if you have a full-time job, most creatives tend to work off hours as well, either to earn more money on the side, to continue developing skills (which we ALWAYS have to do or we will be left behind), to work on personal projects, etc. The list goes on and on.
Because our work basically never ends, it is important to take pleasure in what we do, and because of this, it is important to be comfortable and happy in our environment. This is why I bring to you a little collection of useful items that are also easy on the eyes.
It is also very important that you are mindful of your health when you´re out searching for office furniture and supplies. I recommend you read this article: 5 Home Office Items You Should Never Skimp On http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lifestyle/5-home-office-items-you-should-never-skimp-on.html#

This is my first entry featuring inspiring household items that I find online. I think we can get inspiration from everything, so the more beautiful or interesting objects we have around us, the better. Hopefully, I will be posting more of these little collections frequently.
