The Friday Find Making it Write

7 Oct

In today’s world it’s all about communication. We use e-mail, instant messenger, cell phones, and Facebook just to keep in touch with our social network . Today’s Friday Find is dedicated to an old fashioned form of communication which is writing with good old pen and paper. Believe or not writing a note on beautiful stationary or sending a cute card warms the heart and shows you care enough to take the extra time to write what you mean. Here are a few fave picks for Making it Write.

Personalized Stationery set of 8 folded note cards

My first handmade pick is a Personalized Stationery set of 8 folded note cards with mod flower by Powder Blue Papers. This set is modern and chic with a beautiful flower design that makes whatever you write even more special. There are many choices of colors to choose from so your notes can be as original as you are!

Custom Round Address Labels Grass

My next handmade pick are Custom Round Address Labels Grass by Moxy Paperie. Now you letters can have as much style as you do with these unique address labels featuring a boho-chic grass design. You can make each label your own with your choice of font and color. When you care enough to mail it let them know who sent it in style.

  • a Black batik floral journal

My last handmade pick is a Black batik floral journal by Atelier Yumi.  This is the perfect notebook to record your random thoughts or doodles in style. Covered in black batik paper this notebook  is the epitome of Bohemian chic style. Besides who says journaling can’t be done in style.

With all these stylish choices for communication maybe you’ll be inspired to write your friends or loved one a special note. Sure it’s quicker to e-mail, instant messenger, or text but it’s not more personal. In today’s world of conversation by computer or gadgets these writing accessories show us that simple pen and ink is even that much more special.
