Taking the Ordinary and Making It Special

Thought of an example of this.  When I was in my twenties, we still wrote letters, sent birthday cards to people, etc.  I had a lot of stationary, but all/most of the envelopes were white.  So boring.  I had taken my water colors and painted the envelopes.  I would paint both sides, and write the address and return address with a Flair medium point marker.  I continued to use these envelopes for a few years.  The markers are something I never stopped using.  I like writing differently on each envelope.  I would do calligraphy, loopy letters, or just anything with some flare.  So I took something that was ordinary and I made it special.
