When I was growing up, I wanted to be a teacher. In part because I love teaching, but mostly because of all the office supplies! There’s just nothing like the smell of a newly sharpened pencil — yes, I still like to use wood pencils — or a fresh eraser. I still love all things office, and now that I’m all grown up I can go for sophisticated supplies like these from The Container Store
(Find more about them all here. I have the pencil cup, just couldn’t resist!)
I was so inspired that I just had to make a card! Here it is, what do you think?
(Cardmaking supplies: Brocade stamp, flowers, and pearls by Hero Arts. “thank you” stamp by A Muse. Ribbon and super cool aqua Zing! embossing powder by American Crafts. Bird by Crate Paper. I trimmed the card so that I could hang the bird + ribbon off the edge and it will still fit in an envelope — love doing that!)
Have you been inspired by office supplies? I’d love to hear how!
