Stationery: A practical and beautiful graduation gift

Graduation is around the corner … which also means, job interviews (eeek!!).

 

Leave a great impression by following up your interview with a handwritten note. Think of your selection of paper and style as an extension of your personality. How you choose to present yourself on paper says a lot about you, even if you haven’t considered it. There are loads of options, from sophisticated to fun. It is even possible to fine tune to statement through color and envelope liners.

 

Interviewing somewhere swanky or high profile? Make sure your stationery says you understand your audience. Cotton paper and letterpress is sure to make as much of an impression as your handwritten note.

New Spring 2014 Boatman Geller Designs

Spring is in the air. For me, it means cleaning my house and closets, as well as revamping my wardrobe and freshening up my look. I love the brightness of spring. After this long winter, I know a lot of us really welcoming it (or maybe pretending it has arrived for some of you)!

 

In paperie land, spring means new designs releases! Yippee!! I will be heading to New York for the National Stationery Show where I get to catch up with my many wonderful vendors and check out what I want to add to Bliss Folio for the coming year. It is the best time of year and in addition to finding great new products,  I adore being around all that creative energy and seeing what new techniques and materials are being used.

 

One of my favorite lines to work with is Boatman Geller. They have beautiful everyday pieces that are suitable for many different people in the family. Women, Men, kiddos, and family pieces. I just received some of their new designs the other day and there are so many to love. Here are a few of my personal favorites! Bliss Folio: BG Hello Gorgeous

Holiday Essentials: Making Gift Giving Easier

Along with shopping for gifts, we also need to be prepared for wrapping gifts! That step sends a lot of us scrambling. Here are a couple of my favorite products that help my wrapping life a little easier and make me feel a little more pulled together.

 

Custom stamps. They’re not just for return addresses!

I love to create things on my own, but I also love when things are simple. My life is busy, just like everyone else. I love this custom stamp because it can be used to make gift tags without having to be on crafty-DIY-overload. Totally doable. I like doable. And, if you want to take it to the next level, I would recommend glittering the berries in the wreath. It would an elegant upgrade!

 

Bliss Folio: stamps

 

Another favorite? These Boatman Geller wine tags. They’re so convenient for the holiday party circuit. Not to mention, for those very last minute ones that always pop up. You know you’ll be bringing a bottle of wine to that one! I might even keep them in my car, because I will likely be picking up said bottle on the way. Bliss Folio: wine tags
