Marketplace: Skoope Home Paper Goods

So, is that it? Summer is officially over now that Labor Day has come and gone? Say it ain’t so!

How’d you spend the long weekend? Do tell. I slept, cleaned, worked, hopped around the city, brunched, hammocked*, read, BBQed, socialized, and finally turned on my air conditioning (finally). I also spent¬†a decent amount of time browsing the web and Instagram. On one of my¬†Instagram¬†travels, I came across this card that made me¬†smile:

MONEY2

Moneyless, $4.50

Like any good blogger, I followed the link back to its owner, Skoope Home. Oh, jeez, the extended card collection has some real gems. Here are some of my favourites:

SISTER

Sisterly Love, $4.50

Missed It, $4.50

textu

I Texted You, $4.50

I love it when conversations are taken offline and put into snail mail.

The Friday Five: Paper Crafting

My friend Adrienne is not only a wiz at cross-stitching (it’s more advanced that just crosses, though, let me say) but she is an excellent paper crafter. She makes such thoughtful cards for me that feed my obsession with white. Today’s Friday Five are some of the cards that have inspired her to try new techniques and create lovely cards for friends and family.¬†My favourite is the second one with polka dots!
