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…

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…

Whiteboard Art, Who Knew?

As anyone who reads this blog knows, I like art made from office supplies. I like traditional art as well, but that’s for another blog.  I’ve blogged numerous times about art and office supplies, but it’s just such a fun subject! Maybe it’s just my lack of drawing capability (I can craft and photograph, I…
