A new desk caddy !

I finished sewing a fabric cover thing with pockets that I sort of came up with in my mind. I had an empty plastic container, and some spare fabric, so I measured the container, just kind of thinking through what I wanted to do as I went along. I put pencils and pens in the pockets, and a low light requirement plant in the top. I filled the cylinder with rocks about half way up for weight. I think it turned out cute! Any ideas for improvements?????
Here was the early stage:
Mid way:
I really like this cute plant called Nephthytis, or "Butterfly". I found it at Walmart in a 3 inch pot. When I got it home it was, of course, all root bound. I took it out, cut 1/3 of the roots off, and replanted. Gave it a nice watering in fresh airy soil. I just hope the lighting isn't too low in this area of my house. I may need to move to a window on occasion.
Thanks for reading. Hope everyone is having a great week!

Cute caddy! But what about your crock pot dinner? What was it? I'm always looking for good crockpot ideas.

Oh that is too adorable.
Having a good week so far. Weather, perfect for gardening and just sitting outside relaxing.
Have a wonderful day and Mother's Day too.
Marios says "Thanks" for the name of the succulent plant that I posted. Now we know the name : )
