i heart office supplies


when i was a little girl i used to go to eckerd all the time with my mom. i would wander up and down the office supplies aisle, fascinated by all the possibilities it held: paper, pens, markers, pencils, stickers, crayons, glue, all brand new and untouched -- art happiness just waiting to be created. even now when i go to any drugstore or grocery store i am always drawn to the office supplies. i still love the idea of blank paper and empty notebooks, and i still lose myself in thoughts of the words and doodles i might fill them with. seems silly to find inspiration in an aisle of hi-liters and paper clips, but i suppose that's just one of my many silly-nesses...

I am exactly the same way. When I'm depressed, I run to the nearest office supplies store and buy everything. I especially love fresh notebooks.
