It’s that time… last-minute shopping. Gifts for the neighbor. Gifts for the best of friends. Gifts for the forgotten. Gifts for the office. Duhn duhn duhnnnnn!
Since joining up in the Salt Lake office, I’ve tried to get our crew to go green as much as possible. Finagling approval for a recycle service, bringing in my own silverware, using Tupperware for my sack lunch or playful scoldings when the folks don’t recycle… yeah, I do what I can… ha!
Well, it’s become very influential… my green. Their envy. Get it? Green. Envy. Ha. I’m on a roll. Most of them try to reuse their plastic utensils and we each have our own water bottle. Anyway, that is where I got my office gift idea – silverware kits for each of the office folk.
I needed to move fast though. It was slim pickin’s online for silverware kits. I wanted actual silverware, not the (I know, I know… greener) bamboo utensils such as the To-Go Ware kits.
The bamboo utensils are just clunky, not as easy to use… There were a few on Etsy — Blackberry Prairie, Stitchmates, FashionRemixTeam and TheStraightStitch to name a few. But time and frugality led me away from buying online.
Rather, I came upon Simple Savvy’s tutorial to make my own utensil set! It seemed easy enough. Right? I hope it seemed easy enough…
