[alston @ b.wise papers designed our card this year and I took the photo.]

Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

sketchy lampy stationery

I ordered too many navy envelopes when I sent out Sloane’s Valentines… what’s a girl to do with a pile of left over navy envelopes?  Have stationery designed around them, of course.  I’ve been married for quite a while now, but have never had stationery made with my married name… figured it was high time.  So I sketched up a few lamps and sent them to Megan at Toast & Laurel.  Here’s the final result, couldn’t decide between chartreuse and papaya – so I ordered both! (Sorry for the poor photo quality.. it was dark and these are grainy!)

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to tackle a very long list of overdue thank you notes!  If you need custom stationary designed I highly recommend Toast & Laurel!

for the people, by the people

Around here we love some good paper products. Recently we came across For the People Project. They are a non-profit organization who make all of their cards and notebooks by hand. From the website:

For The People Project is part of a non-profit organization that employs recovering drug and alcohol addicts to individually hand paint and hand stamp its Hand Made Card and Journal lines. We not only provide a job for those working to overcome life controlling addictions, but we also teach life skills that our employees will use as they transition back into society following addiction rehabilitation.

For The People Project gives 100% of the profit from the sale of its products back to non-profit organizations that work with recovering drug and alcohol addicts.  We partner with multiple organizations that share our vision to see men and women completely restored from addiction and we want to support their programs that are changing lives.
