In the Stripe

William Arthur Boxed Zebra Notes
$16/box of 10

One glance at the coming season of fall fashion and it is clear two things will remain constant...purple is not going anywhere anytime soon and animal prints are here to stay. Naturally, the paper world follows suit and every year there are great new stationery items that are as fashionable as Amy's wardrobe. Two of our favorite stationery pieces prove that animal stripes are appropriate from birth and beyond.

Paper Alert for Friday!

Well, the weekend is almost here and it's time to show you the snappiest new cards we have in store. Hard Cards are the perfect paper solution to a witty comeback for your smart aleck sister or a good jab at your best of friends. Their website quotes: We dare you to read a card and not pee in your pants. Seriously. These are some great, funny cards that will get a good laugh out of you and whomever you send it to!

Have a happy weekend!

Paper Alert for Thursday!

Following on the posts from earlier this week, we're dishing up a serving of some more sweet, small cards that are handmade in Seattle and printed on 100% recycled paper by Natalie Eden. How can you not resist the adorable octopus?!

Paper Alert for Wednesday!

Continuing from yesterday's post, here is another great card line we can't help but love. Yellow Bird Greetings. Smart, witty, colorful, and destined to be classics. Printed on recycled paper, processed chlorine-free and manfactured with wind energy make this a green choice...we give it two {green} thumbs up!

Paper Alert for Tuesday!

This week is all about paper and new card lines we are carrying in the store, either {now} or {soon}! We'll start off Tuesday with something new. A. Favorite Design gathers inspiration from vintage living and the joys of life. Here is a sampling of a few favorites:
