Our Stationery Addiction

The other day, when I was in & Other Stories, queuing to buy the dress which may or may not make me look like a milkmaid, but I love it either way, I noticed their gorgeous new-ish stationery range. How has this passed me by? How has my desk survived without it?…

How to…turn your business dreams into reality: Nessie Maclay of This is Nessie

We love stationery. Birthday cards, invitations, thank you notes, change of address cards…you name it, we pretty much want it. We also love people who take an idea and nuture it into a real working business, which is why we were so keen to find out how Nessie Maclay set up her fantastic personalised stationery company This is Nessie.

Just a little thank you….

Don’t you just love getting a thank you card? There are few things as nice than the thud of an envelope (rather than the usual bill, catalogue or pizza menu) on your doormat. While a wedding or party invitation might hold all the dazzle, it’s a thank you card that really says something. I love thank you cards. Can’t get enough of them. Am always on the look out for new ones. Here are five of my recent favourite finds….  …
