Can I get a do-over for December? I feel so far behind and am in total denial that we’re already half a month into the new year. Maybe one of these guys can give me a push in the right direction fro 2012.

I’ve been a fan of Smock for as long as I can recall, literally since I became acquainted with the wonderful world of progressive stationery. The Syracuse, NY based company prints on an army of 20 antique presses powered by wind energy and even offers luxury bamboo paper. They’re bent on being the greenest they can be and succeeding wildly at their endeavor.
Recently Smock joined forces with photographer Stacy Newgent to capture the look of some of their recently released everyday products (gorgeously printed boxes, gift wrap, greeting cards, notebooks, and more). I own a few of the small boxes and they’re some of my favorite things in my home studio. Bright, clean patterns are a constant theme throughout their entire line. I can’t get enough of it!

I’m such a big nerd, every August I miss school so much! I always need to be learning something or tackling a new project to avoid feeling stagnant. But in all honesty my favorite part is shopping for new school supplies. I’d love to pick up the beauties above for the next big thing I’ve got up my sleeve!
ARWEY was kind enough to send me one of their well-thought out, well-designed notebooks. Being the multi-tasker that I am, I went with the Lewitt in bright red. (Although maybe I should have gone with the fuchsia. Oh, decisions.) The set-up is really nice. On the left of the trifold is a blank paged notebook, the center houses an expandable pocket along with a pen/holder and business card slot, and on the right sits a lined notebook. The entire thing binds together nicely with the aid of an elastic band. I think my favorite part is the vivid canvas cover – it makes the entire thing tougher for me to lose in my bag, a job in itself. ARWEY just launched their new site with lots and lots of fantastic notebooks and organizational tools, check it out.

Ever since Rifle Paper Co. offered up a sneak peek of their upcoming notebooks and stationery a few months ago, I’ve been chomping at the bit. And as usual when it comes to Rifle, I’m even more impressed than I’d originally anticipated. Neither is for sale just yet, but you can get your pre-order in so you’ll be one of the firsts! Looking forward to filling my set with my declining handwriting.
My mom is forever making up (mostly delicious) recipes off the top of her head and never able to duplicate them. A kitchen recipe notebook would be perfect for her to keep track of her culinary masterpieces. The entire thing is well-designed, right down to the little pocket inside the back cover and linen cover.
We’ve all seen journals before, but 365 Days gave me a new idea. I’m not the best at sticking to writing in mine – I really only want to write when something momentous happens, or a special day rolls around, or the urge strikes. I’d love to fill in all the days of this journal in a non-linear fashion,with no regard as to how many years it might take. Who knows, the end result just might be fascinating.
I’m always messing around with one project or another, but in the past few months I’ve been gung ho on DIY. I don’t know whether I’m just noticing the great projects out there more, or maybe following some new blogs that are chock full of ideas and inspiration. And you know what? I don’t care which it is because I’m feeling more creative than ever. I’ve already started a few of the projects below and thought you might like to take a shot at them as well.
Crushing on these colorway notebooks and planners from the Hach. I love technology, but nothing feels quite as satisfying as crossing something off of my to-do list in the old school way. (via Oh So Beautiful Paper)
