New in the Shop: Stationery!

Let's hear it for paper! I'll admit, I have a borderline weird obsession with paper stuff. I can't help myself. Notebooks, journals, stationery, little cards, post-it notes, scrapbooking stuff (Do I scrapbook? Not at all!), paper boxes, paper lanterns. . . I saw furniture from Finland made out of cardboard! springbouquets1

I've wanted to add stationery products to my Etsy shop for awhile and I finally have some to share with you! There are currently three sets available. The first is the "Spring Bouquet Notecard Set," a set of 6 notecards with colorful flowers paired up with a bicycle, rain boots, and an umbrella. There are 2 of each design on a nice folded notecard, blank on the inside, with white envelopes. These are perfect for mailing to a friend you haven't seen in awhile or when you want to write an extra special thank you, like for your kid's third grade teacher. These are the good dishes of stationery.

The second two sets are flat postcard/notecard sets. The design covers one side of the card (much like a postcard), but the back has a nice soft surface for writing. They also come with matching envelopes. One set is called "Flora Patina," full of vibrant flowers and mushrooms. The other set is my "Peony Garden" design. Each set comes with 12 cards, 3 of each design. I think of these as a more casual notecard when you want something to stick inside a little gift or put on top of a plate of cookies for the neighbor who watered your plants when you were on vacation. These are the paper plates (nice, cute paper plates) of stationery.

I hope you enjoy them and please let me know if you'd like to see more stationery items like this in my shop. What kinds are your favorites? Does anyone know if you can make your own washi tape? Wouldn't that be awesome?
