Office Birthday Cards

Inspiration Board : Office Birthday Cards

Posted by

We are big fans of the office birthday party (did you see Blake’s post showing a few of our celebrations?). No party is complete without a handmade card signed by coworkers. We’re lucky in that we have “a little” glitter and few craft tools around. However, if your office is not similarly stocked, a lot …

I’ve been thinking a lot about sloths recently. I’ve always thought they were fascinating and I’ve been trying to learn more about them. Ultimately, I would love to spend some time with them—you can actually do that if you visit Costa Rica. So now I am planning a trip! But before my holiday planning in …
