friday at unity = friends with FLAIR

Friends with Flair...LOVE IT!
My office needed some extra "flair" so I turned these boring clear jars into cute little office supply holders...or maybe I'll stash some candy in them.
hmmmm not quite sure yet!
anyway...
The stamps that I used are from the Unity Kit Birdie Inspiration
{adorable..and currently ON SALE!}
I love being surrounded by inspiration so these little quotes fit perfect in my office!
I think that sub-consiously my inspiration for these came from Unity DT member Julie Campbell. I just LOVE her style...she always adds the perfect finishing touches and uses ribbon, fabric, even jean material in such unique ways. {thanks for all the inspiration Julie!}

LOOK at that fabulous {day dream} card in the background. Does it look familar? I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It's actually a card that Maren {fabulous Unity DT member as well!} made a while back. She gave us a TON of fabulous cards when we were at CHA...to share with other customers and for display, BUT there is no way I could give this card up. It makes me HAPPY! {maren, i hope you don't mind that i kept it for myself - it is in my office at Unity for everyone else to see as well!!} :)

...a little more flair for my new chalkboard.
I painted and distressed some cheap frames that I got at a craft store and then painted the boards with chalkboard paint and magnetic paint {yes, they make magnetic paint!} but needed some magnets to match!
So I used a garage sale find - a crossword dictionary for 25 cents! I punched them out, added the cute butterfly stamp from our September Stampin' Store kit, glued everything together and wah-lah! new office flair!
Thanks for stopping by...
