Before I get into today’s post, I want to acknowledge that our hearts are still heavy hearts after the horrible events in Charlottesville this past weekend. It feels wrong to just jump back into talking about pretty paper without addressing what many of us are thinking and feeling right now. I don’t have all the right words, but I’m completely disgusted by both the hatred and bigotry on display over the weekend and the administration’s deplorable watered-down reaction. There are not many sides to this issue. This is about right and wrong. White supremacists are wrong. Neo-Nazis are wrong. It’s up to us to fight against those views and deny them the space to fester and grow. That means speaking up and standing up for what is right. Racism and hate have no place here. We need to say it, over and over and over. You can find some other ideas for fighting hate in our community at the Southern Poverty Law Center. And now back to your regularly scheduled distractions. Thank you for understanding.
Okay! So today I thought I’d share a few favorites from Good Juju Ink’s brand new Into the Woods collection! I got to see this collection in person at the 2017 National Stationery Show a couple months ago, and it’s full of fun things like beautiful nature-inspired illustrations, copper foil, and quotes to inspire reflection, organization, and observation. The entire collection is inspired by the meditative, woodland whimsy of Thoreau’s Walden and includes copper foil-kissed folders, boxed note cards, notebooks, journals, and notepads. Plus, a portion of the proceeds from Into the Woods will benefit the Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees initiative! Let’s take a look.
