HtCC: Kate Spade Stationery

I used to have a few pen pals when I was younger, and loved writing long letters then waiting for the replies. (OK, I didn’t enjoy the *waiting* for replies, but I was always excited to receive one!) One of the first things I did when getting an email address of my own was to sign up to a email pen pal service (which didn’t really go to plan…I ended up with photos of naked men. I did not tell my parents about that one.) but as the Internet has evolved, it is so much easier to send a quick message via Facebook or Twitter instead of writing an actual email or *gasp* a letter.

However, with beautiful notecards like this from Kate Spade, I’m tempted to start again!

The All Wrapped Up ($20) set is so gorgeously bright pink, if not completely practical (OK, for me, at least – the only ink that would look good would be black, and I have a strange dislike for black ink. I don’t know.)

As soon as I saw the Hello Sunshine cards ($20), I immediately thought of sending one to Sarah – its such a happy card to send just to say hello!

The Snail Mail set ($25) is so cute, and seems very apt for this form of communication! I’d send this to an old school friend, who used to hate snails enough to throw them into her neighbours garden. It would be difficult to hate this snail though!

If all else fails, this All Occasion box set ($35) is good as an emergency back up when you need to get a card into the post right now. (You’ve not had that? You don’t have a small stash of cards at home in case you need to pull one out quickly? No, er, neither do I…) Once all the cards are used up, you could always use the box again to organise your non existant card collection.

If only Kate Spade delivered to the UK – I think a trip to one of the London stores is due!

HtCC – Archie Grand

Since getting my iPad, I’ve had to reign in my stationary habit. Even so, I still have at least 5 notebooks in my office just waiting to be used. (I’m too afraid to write the first word in a nice notebook. Anyone else get that?)

I could have done with one of these notebooks by Archie Grand at the Aussie event though. Perhaps if I’d had the “Bloggers I Met And Liked” notebook, I could have taken down everyones blog address.

They can be bought from Amazon*

Everyone has played Pac Man at least once in their lives. Pac Man is 30 years old this year, and as part of the celebrations (did you play on the Google Doodle?

Moleskine has released some limited edition notebooks to celebrate this. The notebooks come with certain graphics on the front, and little stickers with things like the ghosts and the fruits (I’m sure theres a technical term for them, but you know what I mean)

The Moleskine website says they’re available from their Asian website, but thankfully good old Amazon has them listed. I love the little 4 “Volant” notebook’s in a gift set (which are the top pictures of the thin coloured note books) and since my normal Moleskine is the black ruled book, the black pocket sized ruled notebook with Pac Man on the front is perfect!
