stationery trends magazine

I forgot to mention in this post that Stationery Trends magazine has a regular feature, the Hit List, relaying feedback directly from retailers on what's happening in the industry.

In the current issue, they asked for three favorite things found at the May NSS. My answer was: anything with marine life; millimeter/milligram; and pink loves brown.

As mentioned here, I love delphine and her gorgeous collection of stationery. My kids are fascinated with marine life ... we could watch The Blue Planet for hours! So when I saw these greeting cards, I was immediately attracted. Who doesn't love a letterpressed jellyfish?

And have you seen mmmg? If not, you're missing out. My fellow bwp'ers had to stop me from buying everything they had! Really awesome planners of every shape, size, and color. The above collage are shots from inside the grafik planner ... a fav of bwp customers. All the mmmg planners are perpetual ... and beautiful.

I was so excited to find Pink Loves Brown at the show. Her stationery is lovely and has gotten some cool press, but I have to say ... I'm especially fond of the pocket mirrors and bookplates. If you have a moment, check out her blog ... for some great bits of inspiration.

Thank you so much – I had no idea!

Oh, and the little pocket with the mirror coming out? Love it.
