One of the things I love about the design blog community is how an item or idea or a new talent will find its way onto a blog, then another blog writes about it, and another and another until it's made the rounds on all the big blogs and you're bound to run into it sooner or later.
Last month the "it" item seemed to be MT Masking Tape, which is completely understandable because, come on...it's masking tape and it's in a wide variety of gorgeous colors. I first saw it here, then here, then here. It was also common knowledge that DWR was selling it and I admit I looked (and drooled over) it a number of times and when I had about decided to take the plunge and buy some...they were no longer carrying it. Of course.
Then I had the brilliant idea of looking for it on ebay...and I found someone selling a set of 20 colors for less then what DWR was selling it...and so, I got it! It came in the mail today and I'm completely smitten with how charming and beautiful it is (yes. masking tape). Originally I'd thought I might use it for packaging, but now I'm thinking I might have to just keep it all to myself. Maybe.
(oh, and because I love you all so much, I'll let you in on a little secret. The person I bought it from also has an etsy store chock full of beautiful masking tape and other little lovlies. Check it out!)
