Office supplies for the tea lover

Summer is my busiest time of year at the office because, in addition to our regular bi-monthly magazine, we are working on an annual newcomer's guide. That means a lot of proofreading, a lot of marking up pages, and a lot of Sharpies!

I love my Sharpie markers. I like the size, I like the way they write, and when they start to run dry, a trip to the office supply store becomes necessary. Now given a choice, I prefer colored Sharpies to the black ones. For one thing, when the art director and I are making corrections to pages, it is helpful if her corrections are in one color and mine in another. When I'm choosing new markers, I always reach for whatever the newest Sharpie colors are, and the latest ones are these limited edition "Couleurs Café."

And what "couleurs" do they include? Earl Grey, Blueberry, Pomegranate, Hibiscus Tea and Mocha! I think that definitely says something about the popularity of tea in today's world, since four of the five choices in that café are tea-related. It also means, of course, that my new favorite Sharpie colors are Earl Grey and Hibiscus Tea!

Wow how impressive! Maybe my life will get back to "normal" once my husband is out of the hospital! He went in a week ago today because of a stroke..

Those are great colors and I agree that tea as a marketing tool has really caught on.

I can see why you enjoy using these, great colors and great names.

Summer is very busy for me as well- because we stay open later- but all the time is very busy so that is a bit of a joke here. How cute these pens are !

Steph said...

I lurve me some pens and pencils too! I can easily spend hours in a stationary store looking at paper and pens. Sigh....
