Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh, caffeine. It’s how I start (and continue to live) my day. Coffee, Diet Coke, chocolate – anything will do in a pinch.
My love for that sweet magic is what inspired me to embroider this little puppy. It’s a hand-stitched caffeine molecule. The hoop is about 5.5 inches and it’s stitched with eye-catching yellow on a bright teal fabric – sure to wake you up, just like your morning cup of Joe.
Stop by my Etsy shop for more listing details. It’s perfect for home or office and is a great gift idea, too!

I found this great blog with a tutorial for twenty different paper flowers. Check out It’s Always Autumn for the directions.
I have to admit, I’m a huge fan of banners. I make them for my fireplace mantle for the holidays, baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays. I am kind of obsessed. This is one I made for a baby shower a few years back.
9. Decorate Office Supplies
This adorable file folder is from This Art Makes Me Happy. What a great idea! I’m sure you can extend this idea to include things like desk drawer liners, pen holder cups – the possibilities are endless!

Let’s not forget the obvious, too. Scrapbook paper is perfect for….scrapbooking! Here is a page I made for my shop.
