DIY scratch pad notebooks. Hi there!

DIY scratch pad notebooks

This is Alyson again with Unruly Things and I’m so happy to be here blogging for Nole while she’s out this week. on Unruly Things I’ve been talking about my newest venture called Postal Press. Postal Press is a little shop I’ve been working on stocked with letterpress stationery and packaging goodies. last weekend, I participated in the Summer Social Sale, hosted by Abby of Abby Try Again, and debuted my collection of goods. one of the hottest sellers was this little scratch pad, letterpressed and assembled by me. and today is your lucky day because I’m here to share with you how you can make your very own scratch pad notebooks. here are the supplies you’ll need: 1. start by gathering all of the paper together for the scratch pad, including the cover and backcover, and make sure that all of the sides match up evenly by striking it on your table or workspace. 2. next, grip the paper with your pointer finger and thumb on one side and your other fingers on the back for support.

Gallery Walls I’ve Met and Liked

While he goes into a showing thinking of all the logistical aspects, I go in picturing where I’ll put built-in bookshelves, a nice gallery wall and my party supplies. I’ve already told him that he doesn’t need to worry about the decorating one bit. That’s the way it should be, right? Here are some recent gallery walls I’ve come across and bookmarked for that fateful day we’re handed the keys. -Melanie Photo Credits: Angie Hranowsky, Design Sponge: Jo Metson, Lonny Magazine, Bolaget, Vogue: Minnie Mortimer.

Pretty Office Stationery - Aqua and Gold

This is the time of year when we wait out the thaw, daydreaming of far off lands, clear blue waters and golden beaches. While a few of us are lucky enough to make those dreams come true, I thought I’d try and help out the rest of us with this month’s round-up. With those tranquil retreats of water and sand as my inspiration, I’ve put together a few aqua and gold goodies for the office. Granted it won’t help you with your tan, but hopefully it will make your workspace a little sunnier!
