Papergrain: The Stationery Boutique. Pretty paper products hold a special place in my heart, so I was delighted with the selection of cards and notebooks in the package.
Alex Stacey is the creator of Papergrain and conveys my feelings exactly when she writes: "Text messaging and email are fine, but there is so much they cannot convey, and they can't make up for the joy of seeing a loved one's hand-writing on an envelope."
Even as a mum of two, I still get excited to see my name, handwritten, in the stack of post. And I'm equally excited when something comes for my kids!
Papergrain sources a range of stationery that is quality, creative and beautifully designed. They work closely with a small group of dynamic designers in the UK and the USA, adding new products every week.
Now for some of my favourites. The Big Ben notecards, Poppies and Agapanthus letterpress cards, the animal cards by Lisa Jones' recycled cardstock collection, the robot party invites, Orla Kiely notebooks, and this stylish, skinny notebook that fits in my purse without taking up all the room.
