On the First day of Christmas Ben Johnson gave to me...

Yo ho ho! It’s that time of year again!

If you’re not feeling very festive yet, then do not fear: we are here to get you in the Christmas mood.

Starting on the 2nd December we have twelve solid days of special offers and gorgeous giveaways, all suitably (but rather tenuously) linked to the traditional song, the “Twelve Days of Christmas”.

Can you work out what each offer might be, based on the song’s lyrics?

Getting creative with Office Supplies

We know that Stationery isn’t always the most exciting stuff you will come across in your day (unless it’s a fresh notebook, in which case: V exciting) but in the hands of the right people, even the humble permanent marker can help create the most astonishing works of art.

Here is Jared Clark (he of the amazing ‘tache) making beautiful pieces of visual art with a bunch of Sharpies™ and his face. Brilliant.
