While searching the Carrie Can Shop filled with beautiful paper goods, I happily stumbled across the Emergency Kit: The Male Edition and couldn’t contain my smile and laughter. This kit is such a great idea and so true to form. With all the holidays coming up, this is perfect for all the men. So how does it work, should we send them the link or hope they find this?
You would think I have a collection of cards for every occasion on hand but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Or if I do, it is sometimes hard to part with my favorite cards (little pieces of art!). I am a huge fan of the all occasion card sets, whether they are blank or a set including thank yous, birthdays, and congratulations. And now that I have been reminded to stock up, I think I will be purchasing them right now!
I can buy organizational apps all day and as much as I enjoy them, there’s nothing like pen and paper. Whether it is writing a grocery list, a marketing strategy for work, or planning for my blog, it always starts with paper and then transfers to digital. These notepads not only serve their purpose but make planning a little more fun.

Every paper lover’s needs have been answered with this monthly subscription service. Olive Box understands how important handwritten letters are and that “paper” doesn’t just mean handmade cards, but rather stationary, books and other special finds. There are three different plans perfectly curated for the paper lover and even single themed boxes to buy. I’m so happy to see a company focusing again on handmade and showcasing so many wonderful artists that I have grown to love so much.
I love viewing a shop’s collection and not only falling for the creations but also the owner as well. When I see Christine of The Hipster Housewife’s pieces, it’s hard not to get a sense of her personality too. Her cards and prints not only hold positivity, but are also beautifully whimsical with their watercolors and added touch of silliness. All the traits I could want in my notepads, cards, and friends!
The other day while I was walking from my apartment to get a coffee, I passed the Cornell Museum on my street and was more than shocked when I saw that they had a paper exhibition going on called, From Ordinary To Extraordinary: Paper As Art. I couldn’t believe how amazing and random that there was an exhibition with everything from paper cut art to paper quilling. The show did not disappoint and I was so excited to be introduced to so many new artists I did not know of before.
