This is a little DIY project to help make your work space look better. Cover your books with plain paper and then create labels for the titles. Use an old typewriter, label maker or print the labels from your computer.
The tutorial is available at Paislee Press.

I found the mother of all office supply websites today— Organize.com is like heaven on earth for the office supply enthusiast. They carry the beloved Russell + Hazel, the stock binders and laptop cases, they even have a whole section dedicated to cord control! Cord control? Its like they knew what we needed!
More good news? Can you handle it? They are having a 15% off sale through July 6. Use code “us410” at checkout. Oh yeah!
Need a giant blue pen cap to store all your writing instruments? Done. Its the UNCAPPED™. Thanks Fred & Friends!
Do we love Present & Correct? Oh, yes. We do. The Homework Pencil Pocket is no exception. A small leather pocket to hold writing implements and 15 “homework schedule sheets” – list your appointments and fill in the clock! The front is embossed with the pythagoras theorem, the weekdays, some numbers and a clock too! 3.2×7.5”.
Masculine whimsy? Love the chic manly desk and chair. Dark wood accents? Perfect. Flowery wallpaper… eh.

The Pen Addict is a great source for real world reviews of writing instruments. I’ve been enjoying his handwritten samples of various tools for several years. His Top 5 list for June seemed like a good introduction. Most of the pens he samples are relatively inexpensive ($2-$5 on average) and the vast majority come from our favorite pen pushers, Jet Pens.
