The 2007 National Stationery Show

National Stationery Show

I’m a sad paper lover because I won’t be attending the National Stationery Show, but if you happen to be in New York City this weekend and early next week (May 20-23), the show is a must see. So many of our favorites are exhibiting, and new lines, such as Oh Joy!’s Nantaka Joy (Relish booth #3472), will be debuting. Can’t wait to see what everyone has to say when they return!

I Love Jezebel…Yes, I Do

I Love Jezebel Greeting Cards

I’ve admired I Love Jezebel’s card creations for quite a while and cannot believe that I haven’t mentioned them here yet. Shamefully, I’ve deprived you of this paper craving…until today!

I Love Jezebel pairs fanciful epigraphs with silhouetted images that are part fantasy and part scherenschnitte, with a touch of aristocracy thrown in for good measure. When I look at their cards, I feel like I’ve stumbled into a foppish fairytale, and I want to stick around for a while.

Featured above (clockwise, from top left): grenouille, vanquished!; henry and gertrude, criminal lovers; honouring valentine; and lulu begone: bookworm, gin drinker. Single cards are $3.50.

Snookus Clever Organization

Snookus Think Positive Notepad

I’m constantly looking for ways to organize my life, and it’s always nice to find a company that creates organizational products with style and humor. Snookus does just that, with their cute and clever notepads, each of which has a fitting quote at the bottom.

My personal favorites include the “think positive” notepad (pictured above), which is inspirational as well as organizational, and the “can’t decide” notepad, which is perfect for those situations where you need to weigh the good against the bad. If you have a babysitter, you’ll also want to check out the awesome “sitter’s cheat sheet” featuring a quote from Mary Poppins!

Sadly,, a groovy shop full of all things indie, is closing its doors at the end of May. However, there is a silver lining for all of you who enjoy indie goodies, and who doesn’t? From now until the end of the month, you can save up to 40% on everything on the site!

Not only can you scoop up super cute cards from MAUstudio and Dear Monday for a great price, but you can also find accessories, art prints, bath products, home decor, and many other indie goods.
