Cheers to 2024, let's make this our best year ever! I'll be enjoying a much needed Spring vacation with my sisters April 11-26th. I will respond to all inquiries upon my return.

OH WHAT FUN! A holiday gift guide for everyone on your list.


Here it is.  My very first blog post!  How fitting that it is all about one of my favorite topics, gift giving!  I teamed up with my husband, John and my oldest daughter, Jaimi to compile our favorite gifts to give and receive.  You will find something for everyone on your list, from your favorite chef to the aspiring paper maker.  Most of these items have or will be purchased this year for someone on our list!  Enjoy and happy gifting everyone!

For the paper lover:

1. Esther Clark's botanical calendar.  This is my second year purchasing Esther's calendar and the illustrations are so lovely you could frame them!  I love it so much, it sit on a stand in my kitchen so I can enjoy it every day.

2. PRESSED paper + print - gift card.  Here's a great opportunity to send some hints to your loved ones and a chance for you to get some paper for your own personal use!

3.  Our in stock papers.  Our winter white, ecru, and cotton sheets in A7 are in stock and perfect for a paper lover in your life.  Set up a craft party where you can create holiday pieces together while sipping on egg nof.  Think name tags, cards, and thank you notes!  Or use as corporate gifts for industry friends!  


For the fashionista:


4. The love collection bracelet by Joyce Chiang.  My pick for every girl on your list.  This delicate beauty is available in fine silver and gold PLUS it can be customized! 

5. Harper tunic by Elizabeth Suzann.  Actually every piece of the Harper collection is worth gifting (or receiving!).  Her relaxed forms and amazing textiles are worth adding to your list this year and every year.

6. Earrings.  Not only are these gorgeous statement earrings a fun gift, Noonday's mission is changing lives.  This gift would radiate the Christmas spirit in more ways than one!


For the homebody:

7. Ceramic carafes by Annie Hanks.  These are a perfect gift to pair with a nice bottle of wine or stuff with candy canes and finish with a ribbon.  The entire Annie Hanks collection has beautiful handmade qualities. 

8. Artifact Uprising photo album.  Get your photos out of your phone and into one of these goregous, lay flat books.  Perfect gift for newlyweds, new parents, or grandparents!  You can choose from several cover, paper, and foil options. 

9. Cotton throw.  Cuddle up by the fire with this cozy (easy to care for) throw.  Pair it with candle or box of Christmas cookies for a homebody's dream night in....just need to turn on a Hallmark Christmas movie!

10. Candle.  Complete any gift with this lovely Diptyque candle.  Who wouldn't want all the best smells of a fig tree floating in their home?

11. Flowers.  A gift for that long distance relative you won't see this holiday season.  Fresh flowers add so much love and welcome feelings to any home.


For the chef:

12. Magnolia Table.  In our house, holidays are all about cooking together as a family.  Mark your favorite recipes in Jo Jo's cookbook and plan a time to cook them together with your loved ones.

13. Mandoline.  Slice your veggies in record time.  Put in a basket with a cookbook or the next two items on the list for a perfect, cook's gift basket.

14. Bench knife.  Chopping and scraping is made easier with this bench knife.  A kitchen tool everyone needs!

15. Immersion blender.  Soup seaon is here!  Gift this then mark time on your calendar to enjoy soup together!


For the aspiring paper maker:

16. Garden hose and...

17. power nozzle sprayer.  This combo is a necessity for paper makers when filling up vats and beaters.  Another opportunity to drop hints on your wish list!

18. Cordless drill.  This tool is a must for coloring pulp and other jobs around your studio.  Add this to your list if you are hoping to learn paper making in 2019!


For stocking stuffers:

19. Word of the year page markers and pineapple paper clips.  These are great for all ages!  Keep your place in your favorite book, day planner or simply hold all your shopping lists together with the fun clips and markers!  

20. Chocolate.  Need I say more?!
