OK, so Father’s Day has really crept up on me this year. Last night I realised that it’s just over two weeks away! Has it crept up on you too? Here in Australia we celebrate the big day on the first Sunday in September. My family always celebrate by heading to this beautiful spot for a barbeque breakfast and a walk through the bush. How do you celebrate Father’s Day?
It’s not too late to get your hands on a cool, creative card for Dad. Here’s a few of my favourites.

Mother’s Day is approaching fast – it’s May 8th this year. I love these cheeky cards by Wit & Whistle. I must admit I’ve never seen an enamel uterus pin so, hey, that’s pretty cool. If you’re not into cheeky Wit & Whistle have some very pretty floral cards too. Which is your favourite?

I am smitten by these cards from Felicity French. Her illustrations are all so magical and bright and full of happy thoughts and messages.
Not only is she a card and print designer extraordinaire, but she also illustrates children’s books and colouring-in books. How awesome!
Here are some of my favourite designs by Felicity. Be sure to visit her website to see more loveliness.

I spied these lovely goodies by Melbourne-based Tell Them Stories and they immediately caught my eye with their geometric patterns and colours. I am especially keen on the Japanese bound notebook I’ve featured below (Fire) – so, so pretty.

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!

Happy Monday everyone. Today I am sharing a new (to me) pretty paper business called Worthwhile Paper. I love the earth-friendly ethos that designer Kristen Drozdowski has adopted. “I use water based screen printing inks in a green environment and print on recycled white & kraft paper. All of my envelopes are made from recycled paper. All rubber stamps are made out of 100% renewable-resource red rubber. Yay!”
