Cinco de Mayo!

Planning a party for Cinco de Mayo? What a better place to get your party supplies! No matter what type of party you’re planning, we got the goods for you! Wine glasses, margarita glasses, plates, servers…we got it all, and probably stuff you didn’t think you needed. I’m not a “big” party planner, meaning I…

The Art of Silverware

If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again – I love art work that uses unusual mediums. Not just art work either, but repurposed items too. Give me a tin coffee can and the best I can do is nail it to some driftwood and call it a planter, so people who can turn flatware into…

Eat at Joe’s… break-room.

When you have a business, you have a place for your employees to gather on breaks, even if it’s the size of a half bath. Somewhere where a coffee pot sits, maybe a microwave is crowded onto a shelf, and possibly a mini-fridge where your employees can put their meals. No matter where I’ve worked, there has been…

Picnic on Earth Day!

Monday is Earth Day, a day to raise social consciousness about our lovely and bountiful home planet. I could go into the politics about Earth Day, but I really don’t want to ruin anyone’s day. I’m not the best environmentally conscious person out there, but I do try to be cognizant of my and my…

Don’t Be a Dull Person!

We all know how to finish that sentence. Even though its been around a long time, most of us equate it with a smirking Jack Nicholson with crazy eyes, and frankly that’s not a look I’m going for. Its been proven that a little bit of “play” during the work day makes for a more…

Tax Procrastinators Unite!

For once, I’ve already done my taxes for the year, and the money is long gone already. However, I am usually a tax procrastinator, waiting until the very last possible minute to do them, and that usually involved waiting in line at H&R Block for, well, forever. Then I started doing my own taxes, first using the…

Internet Shopping Fun!

So I’m going to go a little off our own little patch of happy office supplies, and move on to the exciting and infinitely shoppable Etsy.  I adore Etsy – its fun, funky, quirky, vintage and there is something for everyone, whether you’re hippy-dippy or geektacular.  There hasn’t been one time that I’ve gone to Etsy and NOT found…

Spring has Sprung (finally)!!

Ah, spring. Days of warming, and nights of mildness, with flowers and trees starting to bud. No doubt about it, Spring is a beautiful season! Seedlings are being planted in the north, and down here in the south, they are being transplanted into the outdoors, reading to spread cheer to all. I love gardens and…

Pen Addicts Unite!

Ah, pens.  Nothing in the office supply world quite engenders a heated debate like pens. People are serious about them, okay? And don’t get me wrong, I’m not condemning. I have been in more debates about the merits of Papermate versus Pilot than you can shake a stick at! I love my pens. I have favorites. I get angry…

The Secrets of the Garage

Is your garage more of a storage unit than, well, a garage? Is it full of boxes and furniture instead of a car or two? Are your shelves bowing under the considerable weight of memories past? Do you ever wonder what’s buried in that dark corner under the canvas tarp? Do you WANT to know…
