There's a store on Whyte Ave called Le Papier which I love going to. It is full of pretty cards and stationary! It also has inspirational art that isn't tacky. I especially love mary anne radmacher's work. If I ever get a job with an office I am totally buying some and having it framed to display. Here are a couple of my favorites. I got Matt one of her greeting cards for our anniversary this year.
I also picked up a couple of these journals and gave one to my Mom and the other to my Dad. I've been eying them for years- since I lived in Edmonton before I went to Korea, actually. Now I finally got around to buying them and I asked them both to fill them out and give them to me at Christmas time. I am really looking forward to their answers! I think it's a neat idea, even if some of the questions don't totally fit. I suppose if someone was really motivated they could create their own books with their own questions. I have a terrible memory (hence why I blog so much) so I think these journals will be a really special gift that I can keep forever. Have you seen anything pretty or inspirational today?
