The closing date to sign up for the letter exchange is this Friday, 5th February…so there’s still time to join in and tell a friend or two if you know someone who might enjoy a spot of letter writing.
Meanwhile I’ve been scouring electronic land for a few lovely stationery supplies for the merry band of folk who are about to put pen to paper…
Celia Hart has long been a friend of mine and her linocut designs inspired by Suffolk wildlife and countryside were featured in Country Living magazine a year or two ago. This card design, ‘A fox broke cover’, is a particular favourite of mine. Celia is offering 15% off all cards in her online shop. Simply enter valentines16 at checkout.
ENVELOPES OF NOTE
Make your own envelopes using this excellent template from Present and Correct. Print brown paper with a stamp before you fold and stick your envelope or use pages taken from favourite catalogues. Toast envelope anyone?
Oh and theres something tantalising about string washer envelopes, also from Present and Correct. What a stationery-lovers dream their site is.
Adding a stamped image to a letter turns plain paper into something especially lovely on which to write. These hand carved botanical stamps by Little Stamp Store are perfect for this and the shop is full of excellent designs to turn a simple brown envelope into a thing of beauty.
Might you have any recommendations for lovely stationery supplies? I’d love to hear about them…
