Quick Pick: Moglea Spring Collection

Now that it really feels like Spring, I just want to surround myself with color – I’m so happy to see green, yellow, pink, and purple returning to our neighborhood! I’m a huge fan of the painterly style and whimsical hand lettering of Meg from Moglea. Meg just released a bunch of new cards from her spring collection, and I’m loving all the gorgeous color – from hand painted patterns to bright edge painting (on die cut cards no less!). I can’t wait to see more at the National Stationery Show in just a few weeks!

Calligraphy Inspiration: Flourish & Whim

This month’s dose of calligraphy inspiration comes from the talented hand of  Flourish & Whim‘s Julie Manwaring. Some of my favorite calligraphers are also fantastic illustrators; it may be because that illustrative character influences their calligraphic style in a way that’s truly magical. Honestly, you don’t take my word for it; just take a look as her work speaks for itself!  – Julie

Pretty Paper in the Office: Magazine Files

Magazines have been one of my go-to sources for ideas and inspiration for years, no matter the subject. As a result, I’ve accumulated stacks (and stacks and stacks) of them. I love magazine files for the simple fact that they tuck away the visual clutter of magazine piles, and provide an easy way to organize them by whatever subject suits you best. A shelf of these lined up neatly makes quite a statement! I’ve put together a round up of a few different styles that may tickle your organizational fancy. – Julie
