Welcome to Behind the Desk
What is behind the desk?
I am going to show you all my favorite, inspiring bloggers & their desks. Sounds silly but you'd be surprised about how many people WANT to see where all the magic happens. Well, I am going to show you. This week I have brought to you Ms. Kara of www.karawhaley.com. I actually met Kara on a Facebook Group! Its my new favorite way to connect with new bloggers! Her website is SO clean and fresh -reminds me of a summer day & lemonade. Once you visit it, you'll have to see.
Who is Kara...
Kara is like the witch doctor of designers / photographers. She wants to transform any bad experience you've had into a magic carpet ride. To her nothing feels better than a satisfied client. Isn't that who you WANT to work with? She comes from New Mexico, but went to Kent State in Ohio and got a fancy degree. Did you know Kent State is literally 3 hrs from me?? Anyways she claims to be the worlds biggest Harry Potter fan - she even wrote a award winning paper about it. How cool? Let's get on to the questions.
1. What are 3 items on your desk you can't go without?
I have a big sticky note obsession. I love to use bright and bold colors to energize my office and get me working. -My desk wouldn't be the same without them. My other top items would behave to be pens (Which I have oodles & oodles of) and my clip board.
2. If I could steal something from your desk to help me with my blog, what would I take?
Oh no. My mini-notebook would probably be the most helpful, and I would miss it the most. That's where a running list of blog ideas are kept. It's small enough to fit in my purse, so when I am out & about and I am hit with inspiration, I can jot out a nearly full blog post (I've done it before).
3. MAC or PC?
*Looks at desk*
4. What's the last song you listened to?
Jumpin' Jumpin' by Destiny's Child (Glee Cover)
5. Organized? Or Organized Hot Mess?
I prefer things to be organized, but lately I am an organized hot mess. Thankfully I have a really great partner who comes in and makes my office all sparkly and organized and chaos free pretty regularly, or I drive myself completely insane.
6. What book would you suggest everyone read?
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, obviously. (But, if you've already read that this year, pick up a copy of Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert because omg you will love it!)
7. What your spirit animal?
I don't have a spirit animal. I do, however, have a patronus! My patronus is a ram, which is known for it's inner strength and might.
