Like to doodle? Well, here’s Boarding School, a shop where you’ll find what you need.
Made from recycled or reclaimed wood, these sturdy books (also available as moleskine covers) are definitely an aesthetic statement, as well as a practical purchase! Have them size customized to your heart’s desires, too. :)
Plus, hellooooo perfect logo and branding.

Kara loves to paint. She puts her passion to great work and sells pretty much only gorgeous originals (!), and affordable too, in her shop Geometric Ink!
Watercolors are used in geometric or nature inspired lovely art, which makes them all pretty much irresistible.
I’ll take a dozen.

A few months ago I found out about the Wit & Whistle blog, and I’ve been following intensely since. The pics and images and subjects are always so beautifully chosen!
Turns out, the blog merges from a site, the Wit & Whistle Paper Goods shop! And OMG I want allllll the notebook jotters! Too cool for school, yo!

I don’t really like Halloween, this is why I’m fighting back with a “Holiday” post! Haha! :)
These wrapping papers from Toodles Noodles might be just the special thing you’re looking for to wrap your gifts pretty in now less than 2 months! Cool motifs are printed on kraft paper and is sold in sheets!
Lots of other paper goodies in the shop too (tags and cards and calendars and notepads and…!), worth a look! :)

Talk about patience! Nathalie Boutté (France) clearly loves her media, paper, for doing her art pieces out of tiny pieces of them.
Using all kinds of papers (journal, colorful or blank, transparent) she portraits subjects or shapes in a unique and oh-so-impressive way. Check it out! :)

Here we go: my soft spot for embroidery shows up again!
Izziyana Suhaimi does it all. She draws and paints aquarelle, and then she stitches on it all. What a beautiful combination of textuxes! I especially like the “collar” pieces in the Friends To Keep You Warm series! Just stunning!

Almanac industries plays with leather and paper, screen-printing and letterpress and sewing… They make card cases, notebooks, letter notebooks, guestbooks, fabric cases, and wise words in lettering awesomeness.
Can’t wait to see what they come up with next! :)

I love how lettering is integrated in Scotty Five Alive‘s work! With wood or paper as a canvas, inspiring sentences or words are imperfectly portrayed, and that is what makes it all so irresistibly perfect.

2012 is a wedding year for my family! In January, my brother got married. And later this year I have 2 others… Considering I had never went to a wedding in my family EVER (I don’t think my parent’s wedding, when I was 1yo, counts. lol), woah! Yes, this single gal can take it. lol!
I find wedding invitations (when done right, and with a little modern twist) to be a great graphic design treat for the eyes! A little bit like company stationaries, which I used to love doing as a graphic designer, in that other life o’ mine.
Anyway, here’s a few handmade invites I found that I really love! Maybe it’ll be useful for some of you lovebirds. :)

Washable Kraft paper everyday use objects? Yes ma’am!
Sidonie Yang explores this material like no other, and it totally works! Paired usually with felt, it’s texture clash heaven!
And so, prepare to sport a stylish paper bag ladies, cause these are just so cool looking! :)

I love it when sculpture surprises me. Lauren Clay definitely does it for me! Especially her paper pieces, which don’t really look like paper at all!

One of the skills that always amaze me is papercutting. I mean, the amount of patience and precision that is needed to do this is is remarkable to me!
And so, Joe is one patient (and talented) man.

Levyform, aka Cecilia Levy, is a fan of the paper, as you can see! From découpage to pencilling and coffeestaining, clearly for her, paper has no barriers! :)
