Stationery Of My Life

I love stationery, I don't know if you know this. I have always loved stationary. After cleaning out a box I found some unused stationery from different times of my life and each have a different story. I thought it would be fun to share these with you! 

1. Amelia's Notebook! Oh my gosh, Amelia's Notebooks were on of my favorite things to read growing up and sparked my interest in sketching! She is so quirky and funny and all the illustrations were pretty great. I had the stationary based off the books which are equally quirky and funny.

2. Chococat! Oh my goodness. This really brings me back. Whenever my friends and I would go to the mall we would go to the Sanrio store! And everything was a little too expensive for a 10 year old so we bought pencils, shaped erasers, and sationery! I think I scored a Chococat pillow too.

3. San-X! These cuties were sent to me by my brother. When ever he heard I was having a bad day or had a bad fight with one of my friends, he would always sent something to be from these guys. He also sent me a couple of plushies! What a great brother!

4. Anke Weckmann! From red cap cards. She is so amazing.  And Nick, my fiance, knows how much I love her work... and stationery. So he surprised me and bought me a couple of her cards! She makes the cutest illustrations!

5. Gemma Correll! From All-Mighty. This was another great gift from my bother! See? So great. He also got me a tote and a shirt with her amazing illustrations! So cute!

6. Suzy Ultman! She is so great. So my brother's girlfriend, Natasha, got me this super cute set. It comes with cute doll like notecards but I just wanted to show the envelopes because I love her patterns so much! Natasha did not only give me a christmas present, but she got me inspiration for my senior project that year! So great! :)

Thanks guys!

Happy Wednesday!

5 Cute Blogs

So I have been meaning to make this post for a while now. I wanted to share a couple of my favorite blogs out there. And last week Rhianna from Rhi-Creations and owner of Ello Lovey awarded me with a Liebster award! I am excited to get one and hand out 5 more! So here are my 5 picks!

1.Rhi-Creations So I am totally bouncing the ball back! Rhianna is an instagram buddy and an amazing designer! I seriously can't get over her very pretty handmade type. You should defiantly check out her prints in her shop. And my favorite post of hers so far is this cute collaboration with Sheepish Knit. Check out her blog!

2. Delectable Cook  I went to art school with Alicia and she is a very talented illustrator. She had found a huge passion for cooking a couple years back and has made the most delicious food illustrations around. And now she has a blog collaborating the two! Also you can find her amazing food prints at her shop!

3.  Hello Emma , Emma Trithart. I got to meet this amazingly talented illustrator recently, she is super sweet and very inspiring! I saw the print below at the MCAD art sale a couple years back and have been following her blog ever since! It's full of her super cute illustrations, fashion pics, and interesting posts. I would defiantly check it out.

4. My Zoetrope Michelle makes the cutest illustrations I have ever seen! All the animals with those little eyes!!! ADORABLE! I suggest you check out her blog and shop!! 

5. Oh September Gabrielle is also an instagram buddy! She loves showing off her cat as much as I do! She is a great artist and designer. I love her drawings!  You can get a  custom portrait done by her! I suggest you check her out along with her etsy store

Hope you all have a great friday! Keep blogging!
