6 Reasons to Love Pretty Tape: Pack, Decorate and CreateCathy Hale
I’m not sure what keeps things together these days. Glue? Love? Hope? As a parent, I’m thinking it could be tape. I’ve never used tape as much as I do now as a mother. It seems everything requires some kind of special tape – broken toys, rips in coloring books, boxes of old baby gear, holiday gifts, my body in a strapless dress. You name it, it needs help.
I’m not alone in my tape obsession. My fellow blogger Michelle Horton just discovered some fabulous finds made from duct tape! If you’re all about style and agree that brown packing tape is just downright sad, you’ll love the cool items at TapeSwell.
