Inspiration: Print and Paper

I've spent the last few hours following a delightful paper trail on the Internet.  A little known fact about me is that I am and always have been obsessed with paper - notebooks, cards, even writing utensils - I find it all fascinating. I used to collect notebooks as a little girl and there is nothing quite like putting fresh ink to an empty page. I dream of one day owning a used book store and my husband just mentioned to me how wonderful it would be to put a letterpress in the back and run classes out of said future bookstore (yes, it would be wonderful - even more so once we mastered the use of it). So I spent today trying to discover others whose passion for paper and print has been ignited well beyond my own.

Clockwise from top:
- These delightful little note cards from Paper and Type are fill-in-the-blank for quick notes which, in my mind, are perfect for hiding in random places for people to discover as they sift through their purse, wallet, moving box, medicine cabinet, underwear drawer etc.
-  I love these die-cut bears from Blackbird Letterpress, perfect for holding pictures and love notes, but especially for the little flowers my boys bring me!
- Also can't get enough of their perpetual calendar -super fun.
- I stumbled across Seed House along the way and everything about this couple seems dreamy.  I cannot wait for their shop to open; check out their behind the scenes here.   I should also mention they run Forage Haberdashery and Something's Hiding in Here so check them out, they are the ultimate creative couple. Seriously.
- And how wonderful are these Coupons from Letter & Lark? Makes me wish it was February...
- Lastly these notebooks, once again from Blackbird Letterpress, are a fantastic size and come in some pretty spiffy prints.

All in all, it was an inspirational few hours wherein I became amazed (and small and insignificant) by the creative powers out there in the world.  It makes me thankful to be alive during this time period.  Thanks and come back again!
