Paper Cuts

Thursday, October 13, 2011




My parents recently unearthed years worth of Christmas lists and, as it turns out, my 8 year old self was obsessed with paper. I asked for monogrammed stationery as a 3rd grader, so is it any wonder that I've been steadfastly buying the same ivory cards for years?

But when I came across Erin Napier of Lucky Luxe's gorgeous silhouetted stationery suite on her personal blog, Make something good today, I practically fell off my chair; ecru paper from Crane's and that rich grey letterpress could easily woo me away from my monogram!

Tell me, do you use personalized stationery?

  6. Ha haha. I LOVE that you asked for monogrammed stationary when you were 8. That is beyond awesome. The only time we used it was for our thank you notes from our wedding. Otherwise not that much. These are gorgeous though!

  7. It's my dream to be awesome enough to have personalized stationary. I need to 1. have the extra money and 2. actually use them. I'm not quite adult enough for that yet.
