For those that need to get away

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

I was recently fortunate enough to escape a few weeks of this cold Canadian winter on a trip to Costa Rica. Upon returning I found I had travel on the brain more than ever and found myself gravitating towards items in the store that reflected my nomadic spirit.


We have a multitude of products in store to appeal to those looking to travel or interested in geography. Everything from travel journals, notecards, stickers, maps, and papers that depict patterns from around the globe.

jm-for-blog-450x257I found I was especially drawn to our patterned wave and botanical Chiyogami, Zuiun, and Shibori Handmade Japanese decorative papers. I found it hard to look at them and not see swirling sand, tropical plants, and the beautiful gradients of the sunsets I had watched in the prior weeks. For those that scrapbook or create photo albums after travel be sure to browse through our binders in store because you may find treasures like these papers that you never knew about before.

Scratching off Costa Rica on our display interactive Scratch Map by Luckies of London ($29.95) was one of the first things I did upon arrival back to the store. These maps are a great way of tracking where you’ve been and where you want to go next. Travel aficionados feel free to make your mark on our map next time you’re in store to share where you’ve been. I know I can’t wait to be able to scratch more destinations off.

Old Soul Journaling

Monday, January 6th, 2014

Some of us old soul types can always use a place to put our daily thoughts and ideas down onto paper. What better place than these beautifully vintage styled journals.

They come in four styles with a touch of old Parisian design. Inside you will find three styles of paper; lined pages, grid on kraft paper and perforated blank sheets for those quick notes. The Musique styled one even comes with 122 pages of sheet music for that new tune you may be playing around with.

Two of my favourite things are vintage styles and a good sized notebook. With a total 288 pages, that should give you plenty of space to write to your heart’s content.  Come in and take a look at them.
