write on wednesday … shouldn’t everyone write? Part 1: about the paper
October 23, 2008 § 7 Comments
So, how about you? Do you make time to write everyday? Don’t you think everybody should? asks Becca this week.
I do take time to write every day. Thanks to blogs. Blogging. Blog world. Excellent blog acquaintances. I have to write in the morning. While others are stretching, yoga-ing, having breakfast, I’m writing. Can’t help it.
I am postponing “should everyone write” ’til tomorrow as I am in my usual “running late to the office” situation (pause, to sip coffee and ponder the color of this font) but want to post some paper. WRITERS LOVE TO LOOK AT PAPER. Of course, we prefer to own it, in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colors but blog wise, we are content to ogle it as well.
Herein then, Part 1, to answer Becca’s question as a visual – how could everyone NOT write?
A Moleskine notebook goes anywhere, fairly discreetly …
So should we write, just to see all that cursive filling page after page?
Jenni Bick does not only wonderful papers (what a tidy stack of paper, in such colors which of course would require buying some very cool pens in different inks!) but also very cool handbound journals. You should look.
Here.This is just ONE Jenni style – there are tons of them on www.jennibick.com.
And Kate Spade (blue, above) jumped on the paper bandwagon. (Did you know David Spade is her brother-in-law? Should purse and shoe designers also get into stationery? Yes, but I draw the line at $30 pencil cases.) She has a yuppy-preppy line of cards, invites and thank yous. Honestly? I like her designer label more than her paper designs.
And then there’s Crane. Did you know that its stationery is considered “green?” (I believe because it’s cotton paper. I should fact check this.) Anyway, it’s classic stuff. Traditional. Speaks out loud. Makes you want to use a fountain pen.
K & Co (above) does some wild stuff (not just for scrapping) that inspires even making your own paper or combinations or stationery collages. Or, just leave it lying around.
I don’t know if everyone should write, but everyone should have classy, cool paper – paper that speaks to them – on which to write, just in case they want to.
