OK – you can all stop laughing now. Martha Stewart I am not.

Yes, I am doing a giveaway for Martha Stewart products.

Bite Me. Its pretty. I like pretty. You cant always see the pretty for the mess, but I really like pretty.

I got an email a few weeks back wanting to know if I would like to do a review/giveaway for Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery. I basically chuckled to myself, about to hit delete, thinking how ironic it was for me to receive this pitch but then I saw a picture on the email and it was really pretty. So pretty. A desk all set up, just so. Awwwww. I thought surely with these products that they were offering me, my desk too could look like this??

I looked at my desk.


Yep – prime contender to be Martha Stewarted if I ever saw one.

So I replied and said yes, I would love to receive their package to review and could I please have one to give away for one of my lovely readers?

Sure thing they said, so here we are 🙂

So – the Martha Stewarting started.


I had to get rid of these which G Man had adorned my desk with over 4 years ago. One nappy wipe and half and hour later they were gone – remember how you used to get rid of your rego stickers with a wet piece of newspaper? Yep, that was how I did it with a wipe.

Fortunately as I was Martha Stewarting, our big canvas print of our Christmas holiday that I had ordered arrived so it now helps the look by being placed directly over my new-look desk – I am thrilled!

1,2,3 Awwwwwww – its it pretty???

You cant really tell from the photo, but the set itself is kinda like a faux crocodile skin leather look, really tasteful and classy. The drawer hides all my bills and scrap pieces of paper and I can pop my bits and pieces into the little organiser and pretend I am organised. I have hidden all my important papers into the magazine file under my desk out of sight and I have no idea what to use the journal for, which is also bound by the same faux leather look. Any ideas?? Saaaaah perdy!!!  The web page describes the set as white, but its really a cream/pearl. Next time I am up in Perth I think I might pop into Officeworks and see what else I can get to match this set on my desk – I am crushing on their other things too 🙂 I have also just ordered myself a matching office chair in a cream as well – Squeeee!!!!! How pretty will my desk corner be?



This is what I did with the Chalk Board labels – my writing is more Comic than Comic Sans but it will do – I might get G Man to do the rest of the Drawer Set.

These are great, they wipe off well for mixing things up and peel off really easily for if you decide you don’t want them on your stuff anymore.
