Art + Design + I Design Stuff

Where I work.

I decided that my scabby old black file cabinet (at my work-office, not at home) needed some sprucing up, so I gave it some teardrops. I put a sheet of thick, glossy paper through the Xyron, then cut out shapes with scissors. Instant, removable stickers!

    It’s funny, I just used my xyron for a project this morning, and was thinking about how no one talks about them anymore, even though they’re great!

    (I’ve just rediscovered your blog – used to read A-V…)

    Awesome! You’re style is enviable, really!! I saw one of your book jacket designs at the Barnes and Noble…”How to be Single” I think it was! So cool.
