I am obsessed with space. There are very few things that are as humbling as looking up to the heavens on a cloudless night. I don’t think it’s possible for us mere humans to fully grasp the magnitude of the universe because there no words to adequately describe it. If you get a chance, take a walk tonight and look up. Marvel at everything you see.
“All these illustrious worlds, and many more,
Which by the tube astronomers explore:
And millions which the glass can ne’er descry,
Lost in the wilds of vast immensity;
Are suns, are centres, whose superior sway
Planets of various magnitudes obey.”
– Sir Richard Blackmore, The Creation
The Op Spot
I loooove kikki.K – it’s one of my favourite stores. I have a few kikki.K planners (I’m obsessed) and I find all their products are really well made and lots of fun.
I am quite enamoured by these thumbprint portraits created by artist Cheryl Sorg.
Cheryl creates the portraits using your own thumbprint and the titles of your favourite fifty or sixty books. “This custom work is especially for the avid reader and the resulting artwork will be a truly one-of-a-kind portrait that captures you, through the things you’ve read and loved, been transported and transformed by.” What a unique idea!
Christmas is just around the corner! Yay! I’ve already completed half of my Christmas shopping (I know!) so my thoughts have turned to cute paper to wrap it all in. There is so much to choose from – we really are spoiled for choice. I’m really into space so my favourite is the paper by Norman’s Printery below. Do you have a fave?

What can I say? I’m a sucker for a gallery wall. This is Geraldine from little BIG BELL’s creative space.
I really like the look of predominantly black wedding stationery (wedding invites, save the date cards etc). Black conjures up feelings of elegance and refinement. Black also lends itself really well to some Gatsy-esque art deco accents in gold (like the invitations by Rachael Ree and Slade Studios below).
What do you think about black invites? Are you a fan too?

Are you a list maker? I think lists are so important for productivity. It’s really hard to be efficient when you’ve got a bajillion tasks floating around inside your brain. My motto is – write them down to get them done. Of course, you’ll need a pretty notepad to write all your to-dos on, right? These ones are from Old English Company.
