|My Personal Photos|
I must admit I have a weakness for stationery. There's nothing more gracious than a handwritten note. Don't get me wrong, it's not question of electronic correspondence versus a handwritten note. I have far too many devices that send email, but there are times that call for a well-written note. It speaks volumes.
I use my Smythson (for very special notes) or Crane & Co. stationery for professional notes. Both companies make beautiful stationery. My go-to is ecru colored cotton paper, hand engraved with a single script initial in gold and matching gold lined envelope. I save my creative stationery for personal correspondences. I adore browsing paper stores for agendas, notebooks, and stationery. Stationery is a great way to display your personality and style.
This lovely stationery was custom designed by Gadabout. I admired Hanna Nation's stationery for some time, before I commissioned her to design my blog header and likeness for my sidebar. Hanna's illustrations have such style and flare. I was sold when I spotted a note card named after one of my favorite quotes from The Great Gatsby. Hanna's personalized stationery would make such a nice gift for a mother or friend who loves paper. I was so impressed by my blog header and sidebar illustration (I assure you it's no easy fete working with a perfectionist) that I had to order official blog stationery and calling cards. It's truly an amazing experience when you see your vision come to fruition. So refreshing.
