The Valentine’s Edition

The time is approaching, so here are my picks of the best Valentine’s card (mainly from Etsy): Starting things off with Rifle Paper Co. (stocked in Paperchase and lots of other UK stores, check their stockists page). Next up, SnoogsAndWilde on Etsy. Made in Connecticut, they have lots of lovely watercolour cards and prints (I particularly like this feather print)…. Read more »

Field Notes: From Seeds

This is a great video from Field Notes, explaining where their product has come from. Field Notes co-founder Aaron Draplin shows his vast collection of the agricultural memo books that inspired their range of note books. His passion is infectious, as you’ll see, he’s so watchable! Here are the ones I have: The manila ones are… Read more »

Lino Printing Workshop

On Sunday, as per my post here, I went to a Lino Printing workshop by Nancy Straughan at the lovely shop Smug. This is a picture of me  (mid, centre) and the rest of the class with our prints. It was a real mix of people/abilities, from novices like me, to graphic designers and people… Read more »

New Brand Find: OCTAEVO

How cool is this bookmark! I love it. I recently discovered OCTAEVO, a stationery company based in Barcelona. Their products looks lovely, and I think this one is especially fun. They don’t have much yet, as I think they are quite a new company, so hopefully their product range will grow. Check out the site… Read more »

Cute! Printable Typewriter Calendar

Saw this posted on This Is Colossal, here and thought it was super cute! It’s from SkyGoodies on Etsy, who are based in Mumbai. Such a sweet idea, and even better that you don’t have to wait weeks for it to arrive (as is often the way on Etsy), you just print and put it together… Read more »

It arrived: Hobonichi Planner 2014!!

So what I didn’t realise when I ordered it was that they were on holiday until 7th Jan (seems odd to me for people in the diary business to close for such a long time over christmas,  but what do I know…) so it only arrived a few days ago, and of course I wasn’t… Read more »

Eye Heart Ewe

I LOVE this card from Wishbone Letterpress SO MUCH!! I love all their stuff actually, but this is a particular favourite. It’s a husband and wife team from New York, which just makes it all the lovelier. They  don’t seem to have a stockist in the UK, which is a shame. They’re on etsy, but… Read more »

New Brand Find: MUCU

My boyfriend bought me a really nice little notepad for Christmas – he knows stationery is the way to my heart! (He also bought me Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats which was a TOTAL dream come true and I have wanted for years, but that’s a different story!!!). As you can see it’s a reporter style… Read more »

Grid lines (you know you want it…)

I LOVE GRID LINES! I don’t know why as I hate maths, but they do seem to be an obsession of mine. I think it comes from when I had a a grid note pad at uni and used to spend lectures doodling in the squares. Anyway, since then, I never went back! Here’s prime… Read more »

New Year, New Blog!

Ok, well here I go. 2014 starts with a new blog about one of my interests… Stationery! The best place to start in January is with diaries. Now, I’ve been completely unorganised (precisely why I need a diary, I suppose), and left it until the last few days in December to order one. It’s winging… Read more »
