Amalfi Handmade Stationery: Extraordinary

Amalfi Writing Paper, Writing Penpals, Hand Written Letters

I get a lot of search traffic looking for what I consider the Holy Grail of writing stationery—Italian Amalfi Handmade Stationery. If you’ve come here wondering about it, let me tell you, there is nothing like Amalfi paper. It’s divine to the touch. It takes the ink from almost any type of pen like water […]

Thanksgiving Stationery and Cards

Beautiful Thanksgiving Stationery

I look at any holiday as a great opportunity to reach out to friends and loved ones through the snail mail system to brighten their day. I believe because Thanksgiving falls right before the Christmas season, it tends to get over looked in the card department. However, the basis of Thanksgiving should definitely be a reason to […]

Letters Sealed With a Stamp

Writing Penpals, Penpals, Hand Written Letters, Stamps for Letters

 Philately: The collection and study of postage stamps and other postal materials. Of all the things I could fall under, I don’t believe philately is one of them, however, I do love stamps. I patiently wait for the United States Post Office to release stamps that will compliment the outside of my envelopes in color, […]

Writing a Thank You Card: Any Type Will Do

~This Thank You set is $5.95~

Meandering around the Google landscape seeking those and that, which circle around writing, letters, stationery and journals, I’ve noticed a general ‘question’ out there. It goes a bit like this, “how to write a thank you note” or “should I write a thank you note” or even…”can I just email a thank you?” ….so today […]

Stationery With Style: Unexpected Letters

Stationery, Penpals, Writing Letters to Others

As I’ve mentioned before, Etsy is a wonderful place to discover handmade and unique items. I like knowing I’m purchasing something that can’t be found in every department store or is run of the mill. What I also love about Etsy is the chance to run across something that isn’t necessary meant for one thing, but […]

Crane & Co. A Reliable Stationery Go To

~Cranes Brown Bordered Monarch Stationery~

I can count on Crane & Co. to fill in every stationery gap I may encounter. Whether that be simple correspondence cards, enjoyable letter stationery sets or a Kate Spade paper (not handbag) indulgence. Because I live in Boise Idaho, the ability to go purchase decent stationery is limited and paltry. So it’s usually the online world […]

Dear PenPal: Lessons in Letter Writing

penpals, penpal, writing letters

The first penpal I ever had was a colossal disappointment. I don’t know how old I was when I first desired a ‘penpal’ but I know I was a youngster. Since my Mother had forbidden me from writing the State Inmates who advertised in the classified ads, I was desperate to write someone…anyone…So when my teacher announced to the class that we […]

Amalfi Stationery: Paper to Covet and Experience

Amalfi Writing Paper, Writing Penpals, Hand Written Letters

When I first purchased an Amalfi Watermarked stationery set, I did it on a leap of faith. I couldn’t touch the paper prior to purchase, or smell it, or test a pen out on it, but when I first discovered it on a website I was mesmerized. I could see from the picture and description it had […]

Postcards: Small with a side of Fanciful Twist

post

I love all things unique and original. In my quest to discover what others may not easily find I often turn to Etsy for handmade and non-commercial products. Postcards are the little sister of the stationery world that pack a big impact. I for one love getting little notes from afar that show me where a […]

Stationery With Movement

Writing Letters to Others

There is nothing stationary about stationery. We purchase it with care and intention. We place our words and thoughts upon it’s black space and then lovingly seal it up and send it away for others to enjoy. In my opinion, that is movement with profound impact. I’ve never met a person that didn’t exclaim how much they […]
