My Obsession With Office Supplies

There are certain places I know not to visit - office supplies stores, school supply aisles in August, dollar bins at Target, etc.  It is as if I have over-riding compulsion that pulls me into those places and a voice that says, "You need a few more pencils.  Oh, look at this cute stapler.  How about some more paper tablets?"
So, you can imagine how excited I was with Laurie's new mid-month release when I saw pencils and paper, pens and ink !!!  Look at all these colors and options and paper clips galore (Yes, I have two containers of colored clips).

Look at these:
You can check out some more of her new release at Doodle Pantry.
AND if you hurry, there is a 45% off sale but only through the 17th.

So here is the card I made, super-imposing one pencil on top of another and putting them in a jar (also a set you can find at Doodle Pantry).

 It was fun to make this and it won't be the last time I do it.  I like the results.
Whoopsie Daisy - not square
Crafty Creations - no squares
Sister Act - anything
CDAC - anything goes
PartyTime Tuesdays - colors

  11. I know the feeling, Marsha! I can imagine how your eyes lit up when you saw those stuff. It’s really hard to keep yourself from buying office supplies, if they are that cute! And you even made them as inspiration on your cards! Cheers!
