Blossoms in Every Direction

As I prep for the National Stationery Show next weekend (follow me on Instagram to shadow my trip!) a few topics have been blossoming. Here’s a little highlight of my favorites these days…



Already a huge fan of the gorgeous illustrations from Rifle Paper Co., this interview with Anna Bond, aka The Queen of Cards, found on the USPS Life in Letters blog is not to be missed.


Fountain Greetings, the company that does the writing for you, now sells beautiful gifts with each card they write. Although it might be a bit of a cheat, at least someone is writing a card!


As I have mentioned in past posts, written recipe cards and cookbooks hold a special place in my heart. This beautifully written article in the NY Times exemplifies the importance we may find with each card, doodle or smudge, connecting us with a moment in time.


Now that National Handwriting month and the Write_On campaign has come to an end, don’t stop writing. Local letter girl, Gina Sekelsky, has found a way to inspire us to keep up the writing with this Love Your Letters Challenge!

A little sneak peak of this week’s photo shoot for a collaboration with Lizzie Garrett Mettler from Tomboy Style which has recently become the unique The Reed boutique, blog and travel guide site. See more later in the month! Congrats Lizzie!

Lastly, for those of you still in need for a few ideas for Mom’s Day…


…you can find lots of them at All for the Boys such as these crown printables, making all Moms feel like a Queens for the day! For you local folks, if you are still looking for Mother’s Day gifts…



…come visit me and other local makers at this Saturday’s Makers Market at my favorite local boutique, Mille. And be sure to drop those letters in the mailbox today! No mom should be without a Mother’s Day card this Sunday. Enjoy the new blossoms!


Staying True to the Pen

There are those who write letters and there are the others…this is for the others.

A spanking new company, Fountain Greetings, is all about the importance of a handwritten letter. So much so, they are willing to write one for you. All you need to select is the card and the words, the rest is taken care of. While using premium fountain pens, their staff of writers capture your words on the highest quality cotton and card stock from Terrapin Stationers. The elegant, cherry-on-top bonus is the wax stamp which seals the envelope. Brilliant!

The cards take 1-4 days to reach the recipient, coming from New York City. That means for many of you, just in time for Friday’s holiday. The I Love You and Hearts cards are just beautiful, especially being 50% off. So if you’re shy to share your handwriting but the words are bursting out of your heart wanting to be expressed, you no longer have an excuse. Go for it Romeo.

Just another fabulous company staying true to the pen. Cheers to you Fountain Greetings!
