Two Holiday Favorites… Kinkade & Redlin Arts

Card-writing has become just a little bit more fun with my discoveries of Thomas Kinkade and Terry Redlin… along with those classic jingles, a mug of warm spicy tea, candlelight, and a large table to spread out and work.  I really envy their artistic skills!  Have you seen how gorgeous Kinkade’s and Redlin’s cards are?  Now that I found them, I wouldn’t dream of sending out anything else; though I might allow for a few exceptions ;).

I’ve been sending Kinkade cards to family and close friends for a few years now.  This Christmas I received a card from my favorite aunt (she’s been very kind to me over the years).  It was none other than Terry Redlin’s “Evening Frost.”  Glitter and an equally beautiful coordinating envelope!  That’s it!  I had to set out to find it and found it, I have!  I’m stocking up for next year.  Maybe this will in-turn inspire another =).

In Search of Pretty Paper Products…

I’m always on the hunt for pretty stationery, though I really should write more notes to adequately justify my shopping habits.  I’ve accumulated a ton of stationery over the years, which includes being gifted boxes of them during Christmas stocking stuffer exchange (which reminds me, I owe someone a letter and I’m ashamed to say I’ve been letting it slide for weeks now).  I adore the cutesy ones.  If you’d like to stock up, here are some of my favorites mentioned below.  I love Galison’s gorgeous file folders; a great alternative to the usual manila ones if you want to dress up your filing system (makes even more sense if you have tabletop file holders).

*Oopsy, apparently I had written on this topic quite some time ago and overlooked this.  Please also view File in Style.
