Stationery A-Z: Notebooks

I don’t know about you, but I always like to have at least one small notebook with me at all times – just in case an idea strikes or I need to jot down a quick measurement.  Of course, it’s always more fun to keep notes in something pretty, so I’ve rounded up a few favorite notebooks and journals to share with you today.

Stationery A – Z: Congratulation Cards

Hi Everyone!  Today I’m thrilled to introduce a new column on OSBP.  I often hear from readers looking for greeting card recommendations, from birthday cards to thank you cards.  So every few weeks we’ll round up a few of our favorite cards within a specific category, starting today with congratulation cards!

I like to keep a handful of general cards on hand to congratulate friends and family on positive news.  But it can be hard to find the perfect congratulation card that isn’t specific to a particular type of occasion.  We’ve rounded up some beautiful congratulatory greeting cards that you can stockpile and be quick to send out when congratulations are in order!  – Tashia
