    Hands Up, I Actually Get Excited Over Pencils....

    Particularly at this time of year as students return to classes, the new stationery in the shops gets me in one of those useless shopping moods.  I love new notebooks.  The potential the blank pages have and the thought that perhaps a new pen will help my words flow to...

    A Nice Way to Say Hi

    My fiance had just got me some new stationary. I can't stand to write on plain old white paper. I think when the paper is decorated it's kinda more exciting to read, well in the beginning that is. I think its healthy to write letters too, instead of just talking on the phone...

    Stationery And The Handwritten Note Are Alive & Well
