Pretty Paper in the Office: Address Books

There are some things that are becoming increasingly difficult to come by. I know this because I was looking long and hard for an address book for quite some time. I realized it was a good idea to have a hardcopy of my contacts when I couldn’t recite phone numbers of even my closest friends. Luckily, there are still a few fun, quirky, and even classically stylish address books out there. Better snatch one up while you still can! – Julie

Calligraphy Inspiration: Graceline Illustration + Calligraphy

My favorite resource for calligraphers is Instagram. There are so many amazingly talented people out there sharing what they do with the world on a daily basis. And if you aren’t following Jenny Sanders of Graceline, you’ve been missing out! Jenny is located in Portland and hosts calligraphy workshops for everyone who wants to try their hand at the written form of art. Taking a look at her website and Instagram feed, it’s easy to see she’s more than qualified for the job! – Julie
