File Folders #2


After my post last weekend about my $1 find at Michaels... the Laura Ashley File Folders... I headed over to one of my fave online stores (mostly because they don't have a brick and mortar in Austin)... Paper Source! I know they have a great website... but they also have a fun tab for office and organization. That is where I found this desktop file folder organizer... I have been dreaming about making one of these for myself, but at the price of $27.95, I might have to splurge! You can too here... Chocolate Kimono File Folder Set

File Folders #1




We are camp shopping and that means getting supplies for writing letters. Yes, handwritten letters. How unusual this day in age! Kids just don't have the opportunity often to use great stationary and their own handwriting. Ok, I digress. We headed to Michaels for the $1 bins... and I found these (my girls found some other cute ones too!)! How great! A blast from my 1980s past. Laura Ashley! The venerable designer line never went away of course, but these office products are a far cry from my voluminous Laura Ashley dress that I wore to school and church (I could have made a dust ruffle from the yards of fabric in those dresses...) In addition to the fun stationary... these file folders are heavy duty in feel and also color! Check them out next time you head out for your craft supply run!

One - 3 mm transparent perspex.
Dimensions : 9.8 * 6 cm.
The perspex gives the holder a "high tech" look.
The business card looks like it's "floating" on the holder.

Marvy Uchida Le Pen



Ok, for about 30 years (yes, 30), Le Pen has been my favorite pen. I took notes in high school/college using a le pen and have loved them in EVERY color since then. Today I bought some black le pens for a small craft project related to this blog. Marvy Uchida has been making office supplies since 1910 and that is good enough for me to keep buying and loving the le pen. I want every color and I know you will too... here is a great source for buying le pens..., here is another or just google le pen (and skip all the wikipedia links... they are not going to take you shopping :)!

Le Pens are ... Acid Free, Non Toxic
Smudge-proof Ink
Conforms to ASTM D4236
Micro-fine Plastic Point
Ink colors match barrel colors...

Handmade Business Cards

Business Cards are so important! They don't have to be fancy but they should be accurate, reflect your personal style, and in the handmade business mix, stand out as creative and unique! Here is a short video on how I make mine to include in packaging for order going out of my etsy shops, Crown Bindery, Crown Paperie and The Papered Crown!
