My daughter’s sixth birthday is almost upon us and I am busy writing out invitations and making party plans. While at the dining table with my address book and favorite pen, I realized that I rarely sit to write anything anymore. I used to be an avid paper and pen writer. I had pen pals, sent postcards, kept a diary and jotted notes that were often decorated with doodles. I took great pride in my gorgeous cursive curlycues, embellishing every scented envelope.
In contrast, this morning names and addresses barely flowed from my wrist, which disturbed me greatly. “It’s time for a change, my friend”, I mumbled to myself. I do so love the internet, spell check and how quickly my fingers fly around the keyboard, but I am afraid that the art of pen and paper is getting lost in my quest for quick and easy communication. Would you like to receive a card in your mailbox? I’m fixing to send some.
You needed a good giggle, didn’t you?
This is so sweet, I may send it to my husband. Some of the most beautiful handmade items come from Australia and this card from Blueberry Paper is no exception.
I have to throw in a vintage inspired lovely, from one of my fave shop Angelina’s.
So, I will admit that I love the whole Calligraphuck collection. I dare you to send one to your favorite naughty friend.
One Hectare boasts that this is “the perfect stationary gift for people with big ideas”. The notebook is blank inside and perfect for jotted notes that are decorated with doodles.
Are you inspired?
