How To Make Colored Staples


Using a stapler is an every day occurrence, but stapling does not have to be boring.  Drag out all of your bright colored Sharpie Markers (bright pink ones work the best) and add some color to your staples.


Pull out a sleeve of staples, and run your bright colored Sharpie Marker over the top of the staples.  It works best if you hold the Sharpie Marker on its side to do this.  Start at one end, and do one coat all the way to the other end.  If you think it needs another coat of color, wait a minute or so until the first coat dries, then reapply another coat by rubbing the Sharpie over the staples again.  (If you don’t wait long enough for the first coat of color to dry, you will notice that trying to apply the second coat will actually wipe off some of the first coat)


Once the color has dried, just insert your new colored sleeve of staples into your staples and have fun stapling!  Never knew that by adding color to staples can brighten up your office tasks!  (Idea:  You might even be able to use nail polish in bright colors on top of your staple sleeves too, but I have not tried this yet, but I will!)



Ordinary staple.  Added color.  Wow factor, complete.

When Weekends Turn into an Adventure

Me & Daddy

It’s really amazing for a puppy to be able to get excited about two little words. . . “Bye Bye“.  When I hear these words, I go crazy and run all over the house in excitement because I know what these words mean – it means that I get to go for a ride in the car!  Yippee!  Daddy, Mommy and I took a little ride to Pet Supplies Plus to pick up a few things for my kitty sisters and for some puppy food for me.  I love these kinds of stores because I get to see other doggies and I get along well with them too. Of course we have to sniff each other, that’s just our way of saying “Hey, what’s up?”   I also love running down the aisle that has tons of bins of doggie biscuits!  This is HEAVEN to me, as I sniff each and every one of them, and have to examine each bin, and as I head down the aisle, the biscuits get bigger and bigger – Yeah for me, but I still eat the somewhat smaller biscuits for now, I’ll work my way up to these BIG biscuits soon!  Anyhow, Mommy measured out three scoops of puppy biscuits into a clear bag and headed to the scale to weigh them – WOW, only $ 0.85 cents, now that’s a low price!  (geez, now I sound like the Staples commercial) LOL    Anyhow, we headed up to the register to checkout and I got to meet some more people who wanted to pet me, of course I acted like an angel. 

Me & Mommy

Then we headed off to the grocery store, but I had to sit in the car with Mommy as Daddy ran in for a few items.  I can’t believe that I am not allowed in the grocery store, I would just sniff everything, that’s all, I promise!  So, I had to wait in the car, but I made some good use of my time, as I barked and growled at everyone who got near the car.  Mommy kept telling me I was a good girl, but I already knew that!  When we got home, I got some great pictures with Daddy & Mommy, because we are always updating my photo album with new pics since I am growing like a weed.  (I thought a weed was a bad thing, and I am a good thing.  Snort, I will have to think on that one) 

Anyhow, I had a long day yesterday and went to bed early, just in time to catch Everybody Loves Raymond – man, that’s a funny show!  It did not take me long to fall asleep as I think I even beat Daddy.


Big Puppy Kisses to you,
