the art of paper {st. petersburg florida fine art stationery}

i so want to be an amazing note-writer like my friend tami.  every time i get my act together enough to actually follow through with some heartfelt sentiment and give a tangible gift, a few short days later i receive a lovely handwritten note in the mail, written with mushy-friend-love in her scrolly-girly-script.  i love it and when i grow up i want to do this, too.

my mom tried to hard to train this into me, but it just doesn't stick - i'm not that together!  well, enter the sweet jacqueline, a homeschool girl i met through the blog world, who lo-and-behold lives near me!  she has an etsy store called TheArtofPaper, and her offerings are simply yummy!  i have adored these layers-on-layers-of-yummy-papers with stamping and cutouts and all kinds of embellishments online, and i have wished to own some for myself.  finally last week (with a paypal balance so i could justify the splurge) i ordered my very own set of cards.  just a few short days later (she must be related to tami... sigh...) into my hands was delivered an envelope of scrumptious tactile notewriting pleasure.  not only were the cards tied up with pretty ribbon and a handmade card, but that sweet girl had decked out a writing pen with matching patterned paper!  ( i PROMISE i will take photos and post mine!)  surely this will make me a true lady and letter-writing-faithful.

with permission, i share some of jacqueline's photos from her shop.  go there.  seriously.  you know you want to be a note-writing queen like i someday aspire to be!  (and if not, these would make precious handmade Christmas gifts.)












now if miss jacqueline could just come up with some sort of system to get me organized and keep me faithfully writing those notes...

My sweet friend. Was that me, Tami? :) You are easy to write letters to! I love you!!! You need to know, I am horrible at FB and all that other jazz. I would much rather stick with pen and paper. You, are wonderful at all that stuff. You are amazing!
