What I’m Working On…

I adore stationery.

If you know me, you know I love everything stationery and office supplies. It just makes me happy. I have quite the collection of pens, pencils, greeting cards, binder clips, pencils, post-its, notepads, file folders, pens, and NOTEBOOKS. If you could only see how many notebooks I have, you would cringe. I cringe, and I adore them. That’s saying something. 

Also, did I mention pens and pencils? Eek. 

I also would love to design stationery- greeting cards, notepads, notebooks. The luxurious feel of a 110 lb. cover felt paper or the smooth finish of translucent vellum makes me smile. To me, a nice thick, crisp paper makes all the difference when you’re writing book notes or even jotting down a to-do list for work.

Currently, my husband and I working on a notepad design that we intend to have printed to sell in the ChicZephyr shop. We’re still playing around with the size and paper, looking for the right printer to make a mock-up. I have the design mostly finalized, it’s a cheeky to-do list that is fun while also functional. After we finalize that, I hope to design a few greeting cards and a notebook too. 

Ideally, I will fill the ChicZephyr shop with not only my creations but unique, one-of-a-kind finds that I’ve curated on my travels. It’s my dream to open a stationery shop, so right now I am in the process of learning as much as I can about the market and product. 

Share with me- do you adore stationery as I do? What brands and products do you reach for time and time again?
