Man these things keep getting longer and longer! I’m always worried that one week I won’t have anything new to share but that hasn’t happened yet! If you ever see something cool/office-related, will you send it to me? You can either email me at gracej[at]shoplet.com or tweet @shoplet or comment, etc. I try to scour the internet each week but I know there are so many things I miss.

Have a great, fall weekend!

-Grace
