“The Post-it® Note was invented as a solution without a problem: Dr. Spencer Silver developed a unique, repositionable adhesive, but the 3M scientist didn’t know what to do with his discovery. Then, six years later, a colleague of Dr. Silver, Art Fry, remembered the light adhesive when he was daydreaming about a bookmark that would stay put in his church hymnal. The rest is history.”

“Post-it® Notes sold in the U.S.A. are made in the U.S.A. Finally, the products are recyclable using home and office waste streams.”


Holly adds: I have actually had a shop on Etsy since 2008, but I have never listed anything ;o(. It is time to change that. I have started to make charm bracelets using vintage (and new) items that I have collected over the years. Each one is unique. So, in the next few weeks I will be adding some items to my Etsy shop-hollymaren’s EPHEMERA ETCETERA. I will also be adding vintage jewelry and fun items for helping you create your own special art work.
I hope you will  check it out (give me a few days)-thank you!


“Etsy is the world’s handmade marketplace.”

“Our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.”

You can find just about anything here! Beautiful, funky, unique, one-of-a -kind, gorgeous items abound. I have included some pictures below of sample products picked at random.

New Book-Made in the USA: Corporate Greed, Tax Laws and the Exportation of America’s Future

Holly adds: this is a new book that addresses the imbalance of manufacturing, jobs and corporate involvement on our manufacturing and economic recovery.

“Best selling author Barr McClellan presents an extensively researched analysis of the negative impact the exportation of manufacturing jobs overseas has had on the U.S. economy, and how this has fueled the current economic crisis. Over the past eight years, corporate tax loopholes have rewarded companies for exporting jobs while a total suspension of regulations and oversight facilitated an orgy of fiscal irresponsibility. Over 3.2-million manufacturing jobs were lost in the USA, exported to other countries and undermining the very foundation of our economy. McClellan presents a solid case for encouraging the purchase of products made in the USA, as a solution to restoring our nation’s economic health.”


“All of our cards & envelopes are made of environmentally responsible paper. No virgin wood fiber is used in the production of any of the paper we use. Not only is the paper recycled from 100% post-consumer waste (primarily used and recycled copy and computer paper), it is also chlorine-free and acid free. The ink and toner from the recycled sheets are neither bleached nor de-inked when making the new paper, so there are no toxic bi-products. Furthermore, the paper is made entirely with renewable energy (primarily wind power).”
