Hello fans of all things paper. How are you? I hope you are having a lovely Monday.
In the spirit of using pretty stationery as a means to get through the longest day of the week I present to you my very favourite notebooks from my friends at Nation State. While choosing a favourite over all of my other favourites would be an epic task I will say that I’m crushing pretty hard on the RIFLE Paper Co journals of late.
What are your favourites?

You’re never to old to play with dolls, especially when they are as pretty as these ones from Wool and Water. They are designed and created by Amy Earles and I think they are the sweetest things I’ve seen all week.
Oh and they are fully posable too so you can frame them and change their positions when the desire arises.

Absolutely gorgeous wedding suite made by very clever (and hands-on) bride (Christine) and groom (Ian). It was designed and made using a home printer and a rented laser cutter/engraver. Very crafty and fun.
I love the idea of giving guests a field guide showing flora and fauna in the area where the wedding took place. Very cool idea. I also love the interactivity of the invitation where guests could pop up the trees to get into the spirit of a wedding in the woods.
I don’t know about your year but my 2014 has gone super, super quick. I can’t believe that it is already the middle of October. Before long I’ll be dragging out our Christmas tree and hanging tinsel all over the place. Cray!
Now is a great time to grab your 2015 calendar – get in early before they sell out! To kick off my calendar round-ups I’ve chosen some gorgeous wall calendars.
If you have any favourites that you think I should feature, send them through!

I was just thinking the other day that I haven’t written a post about corporate identity/branding for a while so I’m remedying that today. The world is full of creative, talented people. Sometimes all you can do is bask in their greatness.
Gorgeous branding of Finnish lifestyle store Pino by Bond. I really love the colours and the simplicity of the design.
A very restrained, classic approach to branding for London’s first almond milk supplier The Pressery by designer Tim Jarvis.
Gorgeous use of patterns and motifs in this branding designed by Singapore-based agency The Strangely Good for shoe boutique P.V.S.
Beautiful black by Fabian De Lange for hypergraffiti
Illustration and design by Anya Aleksandrova for Michelle’s Bakery that is good enough to eat.
Awesome logotype, custom patterns and palette used in the branding for Barba Bird by Dawid Cmok
I have a thing about black and white at the moment. You really can’t go wrong with this classic colour pairing. Moodley Brand Identity have created a stunning fuss free, friendly brand.
Wunderblock GmbH manages to capture the essence of Rio’s Maria Santa Teresa Guest House.
Loving the use of colour in this identity for the Benevolent Society by Aussie agency Dreamworks.
I’ve saved my favourite ’til last. This beautiful black and floral branding for guarderobbery (by Russian designer Pavel Ilyuk) is breathtaking.
If you have any favourites, send them my way!
Whimsical delights to start your Tuesday from the aptly named Tuesday Mourning. I hope you have a lovely day, wherever you are.

As you all know, I love art. Art is transformative. It helps us to see the world in different ways. Art can move people, it can rally people, it can be the catalyst for great change.
Creating social awareness through art is something I believe in and support which is why I want to share the work of Winsome Easel with you.
“Winsome Easel believes that beautiful words and authentic relationships can transform this world. Because of this, 10% of all proceeds go to ending human trafficking and modern day slavery through an End It Movement partner organization called Made in a Free World. Your purchase is helping make a difference in the global story of freedom!”
Oh and it also helps that Kristin’s work is gorgeous too. You can buy beautiful art and help change the world. Win win!
