{2012 national stationery show} sneak peek: yellow owl workshop

May 17, 2012  /  gifty goodness, holiday, national stationery show

So I know we’re a bit far away from the holidays yet, but all the great new products for Christmas and Hanukkah start premiering this time of year so that all your favorite shops can place orders in advance. I absolutely couldn’t resist sharing Yellow Owl Workshop’s new stamp sets. Do you see what I see? Newsprint + rainbow stamp pads + YOW stamp sets = the best custom gift wrap on the block.

Check out Yellow Owl Workshop’s wares in the Aesthetic Movement booth – Booth No. 1540

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re likely already acquainted with Chronicle Books’ line of fabulous paper goods and gift items. I’m quite pleased to see find that Chronicle has partnered with three C&C designers for their latest release. Congratulations to The Great Lakes, Two Trick Pony and Pie Bird Press!

12 days of holiday cheer: knot & bow {no. 9}

December 16, 2011  /  gifty goodness, holiday

I’m all about the details of gift wrapping, you can so easily elevate a small gift with dazzling presentation – Knot & Bow is clearly of the same mind. Their shop offers a lovely assortment of supplies and embellishments. Knot & Bow was a featured Etsy seller this summer. I highly recommend reading the interview here, quite an inspiring evolution.

Blackbird Letterpress has the perfect gift offerings for the letterpress lover or bibliophile on your list. I love the idea of themed collections as a gift, such a great idea! The upcycled vintage book cover datebooks are a super awesome collaboration with Gutwrench Press. The pages inside are printed with both handset type and photopolymer plates – quite an undertaking, with stunning results.

I am always particularly smitten by Ink + Wit’s calendars, this year is no exception. The imagery and color palette are perfection! And I’ve been fixated on that sweet bear pencil holder, such a good gift for any age. Ink + Wit’s shop is currently packed with holiday treasures, I dare you to resist a peek…

One of the highlights of being in town for the NYIGF this month was peeping Rock Scissor Paper’s gorgeous booth and new products in person. I think they really hit it out of the park with their new designs and am super excited about their newest gift item: ceramic coin banks.

gifty goodness from chewing the cud

July 22, 2011  /  gifty goodness

I am a major fan of Chewing the Cud’s line. Can you even believe how adorable their canvas buckets are? If I were to receive a gift packaged in this I would probably spontaneously combust from joy. A postscript to the mister, let’s see if he’s really paying attention: My birthday’s in one month from today, so you know if you want to see me do a serious happy dance, look no further.
