It is no secret that I love myself a little DIY project. To me, every project is an opportunity to learn something new, take ownership of the process and feel pride in the finished product. Taking the time to be creative exercises the innovative muscles in my brain, creating a creativity snowball effect. It also gives a much needed break to the ones that deal with email correspondence and spreadsheets.
Every January I start a new file to store financial papers I collect throughout the year for business expenses. Receipts, contracts, check stubs and 1099’s. A couple of times a week, I gather these papers together from my desk, handbag and kitchen counter and stash them away for tax time. So it felt all too appropriate to do a little DIY project and customize this stylish envelope with the cheeky phrase ” I have receipts.”
