Hey there! Summertime is in full swing over here. I'm going to use this summer to line up some great interviews, mixtapes. photos and more.... So I won't be posting a new Scene Beat every Tuesday until the Fall rolls back around.
Have a great summer and I'll check back with you soon.
Something you should know about me. I love stationery. I love buying cards but sometimes I hate to part with them, so I'll buy one to keep and one to send. When I was a kid, going to summer camp, one of my favorite parts of being away from home was writing letters and getting mail in return. As I grew older, I enjoyed sending postcards to friends from my travels from all over the world. When my grandmother was still alive, we always had a great letter writing relationship when I wasn't living near her. Sure we had our weekly phone call, but we also mailed a lot of letters to one another.
I recently joined a pen pal club as well. Letter writing continues for me. I also just enjoy sending cards to friends when they've gotten good news. Or bad news. Either way, who doesn't love getting mail? Real mail.
I went into the National Stationery Show with all of these feelings in mind. What would I love to send? What would I love to receive? I also love school supplies. Mechanical pencils, tape, folders, ect... I ordered a bit of that as well. With that, here are some lines that I picked up to carry in Amelia.
I hope you will be as excited as I am.... I'd love to hear what you think.
So, I'm going to take a summertime Weekly Picks break. Of course I will still mention something going on if it's not to be missed... but it's slow this time of year... not as much going on to write about. With that said, I do have two things to mention for this week.
Hey there! I'm back from NYC where I was attending the National Stationery Show and it was so awesome. I will post some pictures of new lines I'll be carrying in the store tomorrow. Today I have a guest DJ... Make Me A Mix Tape comes to you from Memphis painter, Lofi. You might have seen his work in a few of the Motel Art Shows, "The One Night Stand at The Ole Miss Motel"
Heading to the National Stationery Show tomorrow. I have a pretty exciting list of card lines I'm looking forward to checking out. And several lines I carry that I'm looking to meeting the folks behind.
Hey there! I'm guest blogging over at Holly Mathis Interiors today, talking all about the how-to's of Pinterest... Join in the conversation.
