Looking to update your home office or workspace with some unique office supplies? Its been awhile since I've shared one of my new office supply collections!
I started the year creating a lot of new office supply collections for my Zazzle store, and I think these turned out so pretty!
I shared the owl design as an embroidery pattern last week, and promised to showcase some of the office products. I absolutely love drawing new motifs to turn into collections for home offices.
I mean, that's what is wonderful about working from home right? The ability to have unique and personalized office supplies? Make everything all matchy-matchy if you want?
Even if you work away from home, some of these products can still be a neat way to dress up your standard desk stuff. So, here are some of the products from the Pink Owl Office Collection:
Well, that finally became a reality last August. I still consider it a work-in-progress (aren't most rooms?), but the change is so refreshing that even after several months, I still catch myself stopping to just stare at my kitchen.
Here are the before and after photos, and I will warn you now. The "before" pictures of this kitchen are the stuff of nightmares!
When I was putting the line art away, I realized it would make a really cute embroidery pattern.
I didn't want to go through the trouble of making an Etsy listing just for one embroidery pattern. So, because I'm lazy like that, I decided to offer it as a free printable embroidery pattern.
And I sat right down in my mom's kitchen floor and started moving stuff from my old purse to the new one because I got that excited. :D
As I dug through my old bag, I realized this was a great time to inventory what I had been carrying around for...um. Awhile.
So, for the fun of it, here is what was in my (old) bag:
Now, July has always been the family "unlucky month", (if anything can go wrong...this is when it will probably happen!) so it was inevitable that mixing July, fire, and people together would eventually result in a bit of chaos, right?
I wanted to make sure the girls were old enough to really understand that....you know, dogs are breakable and stuff.
And in my mind I pictured a small, energetic lap dog sort of thing with tons of patience and not too much fur. Grown and housebroken, thank you very much!
Things don't always go as planned. Quite by accident, I opened Facebook one day and saw where a friend had shared a post from the local animal shelter. They had some new arrivals in need of a home.
