Wanna see the junk in my trunk?

Well, I won’t show you the stacks and stacks of older drafts and trunked manuscripts, but I can show you the pretty new outside.

In order to keep myself sane during the writing process, I have to do things other than write from time to time, and one of the things I love doing is decorating. In my office, I invested in a huge trunk from JYSK, that looks something like this:

Only mine has a London Flower Show theme instead of African safari. I keep trunked manuscripts in it, or older copies of stuff that I like to hold onto, just in case (call me a packrat).

I decided, with all the other silent movie content that I have in my office, that I should decoupage it with silent movie stuff instead. And here’s how it turned out! What do you guys think?

I have so much more fun working in my office now that it looks more like me. My next project is to create papier mache’ letters of the Hollywoodland sign to put on top of my bookshelf. Stay tuned!
