It will come as absolutely no surprise to most of you that I LOVE mail. I love sending it. I love receiving it. This week I’ve caught up on my overdue snail mail – it’s always a great feeling putting a bunch of letters in the post box!
With letter writing comes the inevitable hunt for more stationery which brings me to Moglea. These gorgeous letterquettes would make a very welcome addition to any letter writers out there.
(P.S. Want to be my pen pal? My address is over there on the side bar –>)

I’m back paper nerds! I haven’t abandoned you!
I’m so sorry for leaving you hanging for, well, most of 2015. I have a number of excellent excuses though. I was sick at the start of the year (I was a frequent visitor to the ER) and then PPT was ‘hacked’ and then I was busy with work and uni and before I know it… it’s July! Please forgive me
While I didn’t anticipate having six whole months off blogging I’m kinda glad I did. Sometimes it’s important to take a step back to assess what’s important, right?
Anyway I am back with renewed passion and lots of fun paper loving posts planned so keep checking in. Also, follow me on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up with my daily posts and sign-up for the weekly email of awesomeness that is delivered every Sunday afternoon.
It’s good to be home. xo
Hello hello dear paper nerds. Are you ready for the start of a brand new week? I can’t believe that we’re half way through January already. It honestly feels like it’s still 2014. Time sure does fly when you’re having fun!
Lets kick off the new week in style with this week’s notebook picks. I saw these beautiful notebooks on Instagram last week (thanks @aemeredith) and had to share them with you. Artwork and lettering is by Evergreen Design House and you can pick these up on 13 Sedicesimi.

It’s the start of a brand new week which means it is time to worship at the notebook alter.
Have you seen any notebooks that I should add to my list? Leave a comment or head over to the Facebook page to share!

What’s cookin’ good lookin’? Today is the last work day of the year for me and I can’t wait to do….well…nothing! But before I go away I thought we’d do a little giveaway – how does that sound?
I’ve got a 2015 Frankie Daily Journal thanks to my friends at Nation State to give to some lucky person. Entries open now and close at 12:00am Christmas Day!
(I’m sorry International folks – this one’s just for Aussies.)
There are a few ways to enter and I’ll be picking the lucky person who wins at random, so go forth and enter!
If you caught My Three Favourite Things newsletter a couple of weeks ago you would have seen a beautiful watercolour wedding invitation designed by Santiago Sunbird. I’m in awe of Bree and Sarah Hankinson’s work. It’s beautifully designed and while it is watercolour (and watercolour is so ‘in’ at the moment) it’s also understated and unique, which is everything you want from your wedding stationery, right?

If you carry your notebook around with you (in your bag, thrown onto the back seat of the car etc) you’ll know the importance of sturdiness. The last thing you need is a cover that is dog-eared or scratched up or ruined. Not only does it make your notebook look tatty, it also kills inspiration.
You needn’t worry about such things with these notebooks. They’ve been designed for rough and rugged use. You can take them anywhere and they’ll withstand the toughest treatment.
(While Moleskine’s don’t appear on this list their omission is definitely not a snub. I use Moleskines all the time and I think they are superb. I wanted to showcase some other notebooks – perhaps ones you’ve never heard of – because it’s a big, wide world out there and it’s full of new notebooks to discover.)

Oh my goodness it’s getting closer to Christmas. How are you enjoying the lead up to the festive season? I haven’t even started my Christmas cards yet – yikes!!
My procrastination led me to the gorgeous Idlewild Co shop where I’ve been drooling over these beauties for the last half an hour – especially that merry looking partridge! Beeeaaauuutiful!
(psssstt don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter. Tomorrow is your last chance to get your mitts on a Frankie calendar thanks to my buds at Nation State)

It’s book review time. Thanks to resident reader and reviewer Casey for her time and words. Today we are sharing another book from New York Times bestselling sensation Jessica Sorenson. You can read another review of Jessica’s work here.
This is a nice, easy read that gains momentum as the book progresses. Whilst it contains its fair share of cliches, such as the bad boy who never falls in love, naturally falling in love with the messed up girl in school – it is still a lovely book that keeps the reader engaged and hoping that these two unlikely love birds find peace and happiness together.
This novel is the third book of the “Coincidence” series, but the reader can easily follow the storyline without having read the previous titles. However, I do know that I will be purchasing the following “Violet & Luke” books to see how this twisted love story pans out.
Buy your copy of The Destiny of Violet & Luke by Jessica Sorensen.
