{ a quest for stationery }

I have a confession:

It’s the end of the second week of 2012 and I have not mailed a single piece of mail for the 52 Letters Project.

Even worse, two envelopes are sitting on the counter. They’ve been there two weeks.

OK, so I’m not doing very well with my resolutions. (Actually, that’s not entirely true. I have not had a single carbonated beverage. There have been days when a cherry Coke would have soothed my soul, but I drank water or tea instead. I’ve also cut back on the sugar I use in my sweet tea ….. baby steps, people. Baby. Steps.) But I’m going to try harder this week.

I need your help. There are LOTS of people who create stationery, I’ve browsed through many Etsy shops and Pinterest pages. I’d prefer to support a small business and I’m looking for a variety of stationery …… items with spunk that are different and unique. I consider monogrammed stationery a staple and ordered a new set several weeks ago with the image above.

Do you have a favorite Etsy shop that specializes in stationery? Are you an Etsy shop owner who creates stationery?

Please share your comments and feedback.

Oh, and did I mention that I’m a penny-pincher and don’t want to spend a lot of money!?!

    Put them in the mail at school – prob solved.

    1. Teach me how to create one of these, please.
    2. Why don’t you create your own stamp out of an eraser? It would be small, but cheap. Don’t know if I actually pinned it but I saw it on Pinterest. Super cool.

      There’s a mailbox at school? Hmmm, now that you say it I think I remember seeing a basket for “OUT GOING” mail. You’re so stinkin’ smart, Celeste!!!

      I made my monogram using Photoshop but it could easily be done in MS Word or Powerpoint with textboxes.

    LOL! You want to save money? Then make your own. I find nice paper and envelopes and then stamp them. Beautiful (depending on the paper you choose) and very inexpensive. Easy-peasy, as they say.
