I am beyond thrilled to review the Martha Stewart Home Office™ with Avery™ line which I recently received to try out. I’ve referenced Martha many times here on this blog. Thanks to DVR, I never missed one of her live shows the past several years.
My mom taught me so much but passed away when I was young, so Martha filled in and taught me so many other aspects of homemaking. It was the Martha Stewart show where I first learned about decorating sugar cookies with royal icing! I’ve come to trust the things she puts her name on. I love her paint line at Home Depot, her craft line at Michael’s, and her cookware at Macy’s. So I was thrilled to see that her new line of office products will be sold exclusively at Staples! Martha and office products are two of my favorite things!
It’s been a goal of mine to organize my home office/craft space all year! I’ve struggled with it a little, so I welcomed any products that might help me out.
I really love this Shagreen Accordion File starting with the color! It is well made, expands on the top and bottom, and can stand freely or lay on a shelf. I always need more files!
My daughter quickly up and ran off with these Corner Lock™ High Capacity Document Sleeves, saying, “Mom, I need these so bad!” They look really sturdy and have a nice overlapping corner on top to keep things from slipping out.
This Shagreen hanging pocket came in handy in this little corner. It includes matching push pins to hang pockets on walls or corkboards. Or you can use the adhesive on the back that removes cleanly from surfaces. These pockets are expandable and hold quite a bit (up to 50 pages!) I had too much paper clutter in this area that my magnet board would no longer hold, so it was a great solution.
I really had fun with the Chalkboard Labels! I messed up several times and found that they erase cleanly and easily. They also peel off without a trace. Yep, I messed up with that too. There are several sizes and styles available.
I used the Chalkboard Labels here in my little gift wrap corner. I have my wrapping paper in large glass vases, my bags, boxes and tissue paper in a beverage container. (whatever works, right?) and my tulle in another little bin. During the holiday season, this is my go-to little wrapping corner, and it is now ready to go!!
I have my sewing stuff on a little bookshelf, and I couldn’t resist labeling my fabric scrap jar.
I used the Stack+Fit™ modular line to create some desk organization. I organized envelopes and notepads and set it on right on my desk. There are more modular pieces available that are designed to fit perfectly atop or alongside each other.
I love wrapping gifts, and I can appreciate a good, quality wrapping paper. The Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery holiday paper did not disappoint! It’s durable enough to mail and pretty enough to go right under the tree!
Beautiful shipping paper, tape, padded envelopes, and printable mailing labels let you send holiday packages that are so festive, there’s no rewrapping required! These holiday wrapping and shipping products are available in-store at Staples. And I love that the outside of the box could match the wrapping on the inside!
Everything for this review was packaged so beautifully in glittery paper shreds. (Of course Styrofoam peanuts won’t do for Martha). It was topped off with a hand written note from someone on her team, thanking me for participating in this campaign. Yes, everything is done so well. I love Martha products, and I can’t wait to go to Staples to get more!
(Did you notice I actually used those paper shreds this stuff was packed in, on top of a gift!)
