Inspired By: Iridescent Everything

Perhaps I’ve gone completely off the deep end, but I’m completely gaga for the iridescent thing happening everywhere right now. From holographic metallic foil and leather to straight up opalescent shimmer, if it shines and has a subtle rainbow glow to it, I’m 100% on board. Iridescence is best done in small doses, which is probably why it works so well in stationery form, but iridescent balloons and garlands would also be a fun addition to a party!

Inspired By: Tropical Foliage

Pineapples, watermelons, and flamingos all had a very large presence at last year’s National Stationery Show, but this year I’m expecting an explosion of tropical foliage! From palm fronds to philodendron leaves to banana leaves – I just can’t get enough!

Inspired By: Cats

If you’ve met me in person – or browsed through my Instagram stream – you probably know that I’m kind of a crazy cat lady. My husband and I adopted two cats when we first started living together, and over the years we’ve rescued a few more, bringing our current total to five – not to mention the foster cats that went on to permanent homes and the friendly semi-feral alley cats that we keep an eye on in our neighborhood. So for any fellow cat people out there, here’s a quick little round up of some favorite feline-themed goodies!

Inspired by: Eyeballs

I’ve been seeing eyeballs (and eyeball patterns) everywhere for the past couple of months –  from dresses and clutches to jewelry and ceramics to stationery! My husband thought I was completely crazy when I first mentioned this new trend, but I keep seeing more and more of this quirky pattern as we get further into summer. I think it’s so fun!
