Merry and I both go crazy over stationery. Am I one of the few people in this world who still enjoys writing letters? I try to write a letter every other week to my grandma. It doesn't always get done but usually it does.
And aren't these some of the prettiest post-it notes you've seen? Almost too pretty to use but I will put them to good use. If you're wondering why someone would get so excited about stationery and office supply products, keep in mind I am a magazine journalist by trade and use stuff like this everyday. I especially love it when companies beautify utilitarian objects like these.
Are you starting to detect a color theme here? Yes, my favorite palette of pink, green, and brown seems to follow me wherever I go!
I also found a photo album covered in an Amy Butler print, a fun laptop storage bag, and a whimsical pencil case.
This Amy Butler tote bag is generous in size and will be handy to transport my quilting projects when on the go. Before we knew it, it was time to call it a day and I headed back home. I had such a fun time that I nearly forgot about that bothersome cold. It's amazing how the color pink has a way of perking one up, and of course, friendship is a wonderful pick-me-up, too. Thank you, Merry, for such a fun day.
When I returned home, I found a package of fabric on my doorstep, including this fun print—just in time for the gardening season! What better way for a quilter to wrap up her day than with a new piece of fabric! To see some of my other recent fun finds, check out my previous post.
