Featured Designer: Moglea

Confession. For the past few years I’ve developed a big time, girl crush on Meg Gleason from Moglea. As I slowly strolled by her booth at the National Stationery Show, I would observe both the crowds and the cards and then continue on. Finally this past year I could no longer bare the lure of her handwriting, colors and designs and introduced myself to Meg and her talented team, including her husband and co-founder, Chad. And I’ve never looked back!

    The Best of The National Stationery Show Part 2

    I’m back with more highlights from my whirlwind weekend in NYC this past May. Let’s first start with a line I can’t wait to debut later this month on Brown Ink…

    The creative and local force behind Old Tom Foolery launched a new line last year, Modern Lore, which brings in fresh imagery from different photographers throughout the country.

    I’m crazy about the floral images with copper foil text and the succulent gift tags! So much so, Modern Lore is joining Brown Ink Paper Goods boutique this summer.

    I’ve been a distant fan of Danni from Oh Hello Friend for years so it was such a treat to meet her in person and check out her thoughtful selection of handmade goods and stationery.

    The watercolor and dip-dyed effect is still alive and kicking, my favorite coming from Moglea.

    sugar paper brought some serious eye candy to the show this year and I left dreaming of the detailed gold foil notebooks, soon to hit Brown Ink as well. Sweet goods.

      Peace & Snow

      Over the years, my Yearly Planners have become something of a journal, holding not only appointments but also lists of Things-To-Do, goals for a season, recipes to try, etc., with never enough room to keep what’s juggling in my head. So when I noticed the Emily Ley’s Simplified Planner on The Paper Chronicles my interest perked up.

      Although I’m usually more of a black or blue covered russell&hazel Calendar gal, there is such thought and organization in this book I embraced the spirited, rainbow cover.  Last night as I began entering my 2014 appointments and unloading the Things-To-Do lists from my noggin’ into the well-designed, hard covered book, a peace rushed through me. This planner not only offers a calendar but opportunities to balance the rest of my life. Finally, a gal who understands the needs of life yet keeping true to the paper and pen.  And since the excitement over the planner has been so great, Emily is offering a discount on orders being shipped in 2014. Thanks fellow paper enthusiast!!
