Getting Creative (or maybe it's just O.C.D.)

My niece called me today to ask me a question about the digital scrapbook program that we both have. It got me thinking. I like to organize things. I like things to be neat and tidy. You might call me a "container-aholic".
I also like to control things. (But that's a conversation for me and some poor therapist down the road, because I live in a house with 6 other people and there are very few things that I can control.)
I work on the computer. Alot. I'm a little obsessive about my computer files and the way they are organized, but I'd never really thought about my desktop. Have you? What does yours look like? Is it a favorite photo? A pre-fab that came with your PC? A blank blue screen?
Tonight after talking with my niece, I was inspired to get creative and find a way to wrangle in and organize all those pesky icons on my desktop.

Here's what I came up with:

Come on people. Don't lie. It's a little nerdy.

I'm just jealous because I wish I could be that organized :)
