It has been an insane week with getting my daughter off to kindergarten, my son off to preschool and the various other meetings and commitments thrown in. But I did get to relax today and view the new catalog for PaperSource.
As a little girl I adored visiting stationary stores. Some kids love toy stores but I would rather touch all the decorative cards, colorful papers, and creative supplies. When I moved across country when I was 12, I kept in touch with my friend Regan Sibley from Maine. I spent hours looking for fun papers and stickers that were as beautiful as the secrets I confided to her. And then in High School I worked at a stationary store. Opening the new boxes of merchandise was almost like Christmas. So fun! I think stationary is usable art. I love the fact that art can be beautiful but also functional.
This clever cup only looks like paper. It’s really porcelain with a silicone top. Cool!
