Shine from sea to shining sea with Sharpie!

Uncap your shades! One of our most popular and worthy of #tbt!

It’s Official…

Winter white is out and pastel palettes are in like Flynn. The world’s decor and pasty legs DEMAND it.

Yah, we are looking at you, Winter...

Winter is gone. Dead. Finito. OVER. At least that’s what the calendar says right? The official start of Spring has come and gone and although the weatherman may not agree, we don’t care! It is time for pastels and bold spring colors, bunnies, ducks, egg-shaped chocolates and wardrobe makeovers! Sun, we neeeeed you!

Unfortunately UNTIL Mother Nature agrees and decides to warm up our snowy little piece of the universe, at which point we will whip out the flip-flops, we will make-do by sprucing up our living spaces!

Check out some of the ideas below and for more, hop on over to our Hop into Spring Pinterest board.

So, grab a Sharpie; fine, paint, Brush, Stained, we don’t care! Just get to work!

Winter, we hate to say it, but We. Are. Over. It’s official: Spring and Sharpie are officially going steady.

And because I just couldn’t resist the THOUGHT of some flippy-floppys…

Have your own Sharpie spring ideas? SHOW US!! Pin them to Pinterest and tag us #Sharpie– we will re-pin our favorites to our Hop into Spring board!

XOXO, Sharpie

Nothing says ” I love you, boo” than with a tool that stands the test of time.

This Valentine’s Day we have more than one way to say “be mine”… whether it’s with words, equations of devotion (math is SO not my thing), post-it proposals or declarations of love through a deck of cards; Sharpie is ready to play Cupid!

 

Sharpie Pen proposal for the lady in your life? Better than a box of chocolates, I’ll say!

You+ Me= Us… or this works too.

Why give ONE card to show your unfading loce when you can give 52!
