Stay OUT of my cubicle


So, I won’t lie, we are pretty busy around here! It’s the holidays and getting ready for that is always crazy. This post may be short but the product suggestion is important.

Everyone likes to be friendly and helpful most of the time right? But sometimes you come into work with a purpose, ready to own it  and get stuff done. It’s really hard to get stuff in when people constantly drop by to ask about this or that. I know I drive our IT department crazy with little questions all the time. When I saw the cubeguard (spotted on fresh trends btw), I wished I had $19.99 to buy it for every person and I also wished we had actual cubicles (we do the side by side desk sort of thing.)

You can display many messages with your cubeguard- including keep your mouth zipped shut:


You think vacations are defined by cheesy sunglasses and a leather suitcase (feel free to use this one even if you are sitting there, could be funny right?)

They even sell custom cubeguards! This would make me feel less ticked, I do like mountains.



I really feel proud of the cubeguard. I don’t even know how they chose that name. Guarding your cube? from who? It should be called like a cubeseal (sealing your cube from intruders) or cuberope (like the ropes they have at the oscars) or….you get my point.

I also love the idea of having someone come up to talk to you  and they are literally 2 feet from your face and they just have to see that sign. You don’t even have to look at them because your cube is guarded. Okay enough about cube guards. If you want one, get it HERE !


Office Calligraphy

I promise no more plugs for Sharpie! (after this post) If you think I get paid to blog about Sharpies, you’re wrong. I wish that sanford cut me an extra check for the devotion  I have to the Sharpie brand but I really do toot their horn without pay. Anyways, to share a little personal information, I’m actually getting married next month and right now I’m waist deep in stuffing, addressing, and sending invitations. Who knew there were so many guidelines for sending invitations??

Here’s the one that’s important. Hand written addresses on the envelopes are a must- they aren’t even optional.  I’ve been told it’s almost offensive to even consider printing off labels and slapping them on. I’ve been lightly thinking about which pens we should use to address the envelopes and then I came across the perfect product : Sharpie Calligraphy Pens.


I always expected anything with the word “calligraphy” in the product name would be way out of my price range. These are only 6 bucks! I went to Sharpie’s website to see if they had any tutorials on the product and sure enough, I was not disappointed.  They provided a PDF  that will help you practice writing Old English Letters!  Click to Download it

This weekend I will be addressing a million invitations and I’ll keep you updated as to how great I feel about the pen after using it extensively (all I’ve done so far is to scribble some cursive on a piece of scratch paper.) Have you tried it? Have any tips you can share? Thanks and have a great weekend!
