A Fun To Do List!

I’m definitely a write-it-down kind of girl – if I don’t write something down, it just doesn’t stick in my brain.  I’m constantly searching for little scraps of paper with key bits of information scattered around my apartment, but maybe instead I’ll just go for a nice, neat, organized note pad like this one from Old Tom Foolery:

To-Do-List-Note-Pad

Plus, I’m convinced there’s just nothing more satisfying than physically checking off a little box on a written to do list.  Either way, you can find these note pads right here.

Seasonal Stationery: Halloween Cards and Invitations

Halloween was one of my favorite holidays as a kid – my family had so much fun decorating and creating haunted houses in our backyard, coming up with crazy costumes, and of course trick-or-treating!  And with Halloween just a bit over a month away, I thought I’d pull together a quick round-up of some fun Halloween cards and party invitations!

Pretty Paper Lanterns

These Waldorf star paper lanterns from Green Baboon Designs are so pretty – and they come in every shade of the rainbow and in both mini and full-size versions!  Just slip a tiny (non-flammable) LED light in the middle and I could easily see them used for some after-sunset lighting for a wedding reception or grouped together in little clusters for a dinner party.

Or, if you happen to be looking for something that makes a bit more of a statement, check out these petal lanters from June Petals – I’m partial to the toile version on the right:
