I know I am not the only chronic online shopper that finds justifications in all sorts of sh!t I don't need. (Which was almost the title of this feature, but I didn't want to offend. I know, boring. Gotta love professionalism) I am the ultimate impulse buyer. Probably because I've been there, and just want people to buy my stuff so badly that I want to help someone else out by doing that.
I ordered Marketing Associate business cards for my day job at Boston Logic. Yesterday I went to a conference, and unfortunately had to distribute my coworker's cards instead. Imagine how excited I was to see my business cards on my desk this morning. Great.
Anyway, I started browsing etsy for cute handmade business card holders that I wanted but really do need. I didn't see any at Staples that really blew my dress up, so I turned to handmade :) I found two that I really mostly need, as there's my artists cards, Marketing Associate cards, and while I'm at it I'll probably need a card holder for my desk, because, duh.
I really love this Mother of Pearl Business Card Holder, $19.95 from nacreart. All the colors are so mesmorizing, and I'm really attracted to the layout of shapes. Gorgeous. Oh, one day...The artist seems to specialize in a mother of pearl inlay technique.
Then there's the more simple cloth business card holders from GracieDesigns, $8, which are a bit less expensive. I like the simplicity of these, and I almost wish that they were available in a funky brown design to coordinate with my website, blog, and business theme. I also got inspired to maybe do some business card holders with recycled sail material, and embroider a number on those. What a simple, cool way to expand my recycled sail products line!
Then there’s the cool business card holder I’ll need for my desk, and I was thinking of something that would match the deep blue ceramic vase of my bamboo. (Yes, bamboo: it keeps me Zen.) I love the colors in this Stained Glass Business Card Holder by LA Glass, $23.
So thanks for allowing me to vent this awesomeness before buying too quickly. It still may happen, but awesome. Great work, guys!
