I’m such a fan of Amy’s site Eat Drink Chic, especially the gorgeous freebies that she creates!
This picnic invitation is bright, colourful and has me longing for the long, hot, lazy days of summer (which really isn’t a stretch considering I’m freezing cold and suffering from the flu).
Head over to her site to download this cute design and start planning a picnic!

Everyone knows the adage about keeping things simple, right? A simple message conveyed by a simple design can be really powerful. It’s amazing what a few simple words can do for the soul.
Izabella from Fifi du Vie creates beautiful works of art, based on the simplest of sentences. And she does it so well. Have a look at her lovely creations at her Etsy store.
This is a really cute idea, especially if you’re looking for quirky, and cheap stationery that you can make yourself.
A few days ago, Brenna from Design Sponge shared a tutorial for turning old maps into stationery. It’s an awesome idea and makes me wish that I’d saved the map of New Zealand we bought when we were there a few weeks ago (oops!).
NoteMaker is an Aussie company based in Victoria that stocks stationery goodies sourced from all over the world. I’ve been a loyal fan for a couple of years and have placed more orders than I care to remember! They stock everything – diaries, journals, notebooks and pens from O-Check, Moleskine, Filofax, Lamy, Rhodia and the always cute MMMG.
They run competitions and giveaways regularly through their Twitter account so be sure to follow them.
This is pretty funky. Lite Lite (available from Upon a Fold) is an LED paper flashlight that you make yourself! It comes with a battery and instructions on how to assemble it. Perfect for a middle of the night, under the covers reading session, right?
I have a real thing for stamps at the moment. In fact, I’m rejigging the identity for my company, Wordish, so that I can use stamps to hand make my stationery. In keeping with my latest obsession, I just bought this From The Desk Of stamp from Present & Correct. I think it will come in very handy with the mountain of pen pal letters and general writerly endeavours that I need to catch up on. Hurry up and get here sweet thing!
