Office Sweet Office
You spend 40 hours or more at work so why not treat your office a little like home by fixing it up and making a place that you want to be at (okay, maybe not WANT to be at...) Like the Home Sweet Home samplers of old, The Tiny Modernist creates a pattern for your office. This sampler combines bright colors with a simple Office Sweet Office saying. The pattern makes your office more inviting with a twinge of sarcasm. You can purchase the pattern HERE.

Like a Boss
Whatever you do it in life, make sure you do it like a boss. Grab that bull by the horns and ride! What if you are the boss? Can you boss like a boss? Sure you can. I would love to see this cross stitch in a boss' office and when they did something they could just point to the cross stitch. Signed your paycheck...(points) like a boss.....Yep, that just happened! One of my favorite pattern designers, Nerdy Little Stitcher has the perfect "Like a Boss" pattern for you to stitch it.... Check out this and other cheeky patterns in their Etsy store.

Coffee...the fuel of the worker. It is what gets us going. If there is no coffee, there will be no workee. We need our black gold, with just a touch of sugar and cream! Whether it is one cup or a triple shot hazelnut latte, we need coffee more than we need air. One of a Kind Baby Design created this pattern that pretty much sums it up. This would look great in the breakroom or kitchen or maybe even as a mugrug. You can find this pattern and other custom patterns HERE.

If you are a receptionist or an administrative assistant you can get stereotyped as being super perky. We all know that is just a facade for your real feelings. You go through so many sarcastic scenarios when someone asks you the most ridiculous questions. Sometimes you just can't hold the sarcasm in and that is when this sampler comes into play. This sampler will allow those around you to know how many days you have survived without being sassy. It may also be an indicator as to when to... talk to you and when to slowly back away. Modern Counts creates the quirkiest patterns that are sure to cause a few giggles. They also have a fun take on the traditional pixel people. Check our their store front HERE.Continue to 5 of 5 below.

Mondays are not fun. I don't care what you say. They just aren't. You had an incredible weekend and now you have to go back to your job with the bad lighting that makes you look ten pounds heavier. Little yellow guys (no, not that weird dude in accounting), minions, totally feel ya. Crafty Guild created this fun pattern that pretty much sums up how we all feel about Monday.This pattern is very easy to follow and is a great one for beginners. Check out this pattern on her website. It is... a free pattern, so maybe Mondays aren't that bad. Yeah...you're right, they are.
Well, you made it to 5:00. I am so proud of you! You survived the work week and it is time to clock out and start the weekend right with a little beverage, some good food, friends and of course a little stitching!
