Everyday Handmade: The Daily Grind

Hello everyone! I'm back with the newest installment of my blog series Everyday Handmade where I scour the lovely wares of the Artisans Gallery Team for items that infuse our everyday with creativity!

Today, my theme is: the daily grind. What place needs creativity and beauty more than the office {or wherever else we carry out our work}? I've found some lovely items that will do just that! Here we go:

Firstly, perhaps even more important than a place to work, you will need a place to capture all of your notes, lists, and ideas, and here's a journal from Earmark that will do just that, and do it with inspiration and style {this one's called "The Parade," find it in Earmark's journals/notebooks shop section}:



And, so you will always be able to find a pen or pencil nearby, check out this amazing paper bowl from Ruti's Roots, made from folded recycled paper {find it here}:



And to tack up your loose notes with flair, there is no more beautiful way than with a set of elegant pushpins from Tanner Glass. Here is a set made from recycled vintage sheet music {see many more here}. Tanner Glass also makes magnets, paperweights, and many other beautiful FUNctional glass items.




And to make yourself look professional and fancy, you will surely need a neat business card holder from holzfurhaus. Check out their Desktop and Toys shop section for other great items for your office. They also make pens and many other beautiful wood items for the home!



Have a wonderful day. I hope these items will make you whistle while you work!
