Good Stuff 03. / In The Mood For

I’m a self-confessed stationery addict. I love any kind of stationery. Notebooks, novelty pens, markers, stickers, the works; you name it, and I want to try it out. As I’ve mentioned many times before, Instagram is where I find most of the cool stuff on the internet and since I’ve gotten into bullet journaling, I’ve started to find a couple of cool, little online stores that sell the prettiest stationery and paper goods. My current favourite is In The Mood For, an online stationery shop based in Singapore that sells the most lovely washiest tapes and paper goods, as well as tote bags and phone cases. I asked Vee, the owner a bit more about the brand.

1. Where are you based?

I’m based in Singapore!

2. Your brand in three words?

Ordinary (simple objects with meaning)

Mindful (encourage mindfulness)

Calm (invoke a sense of calm)

3. Your one tip for growing on social media?

Be consistent in the things that you share, and only put out what you truly believe in and not what you think people would like!

4. The person you have in mind when creating your ranges

I usually create my items while being inspired by my surroundings (nature)/ places that I want to go/ scenes that make me feel calm. The products on my store are greatly inspired by ordinary objects, and the subtle little things in our daily lives that we often overlook.

If there is a person I have in mind when creating these products, it would be the best version of myself that I want to be. I create these products by imagining what I would find helpful in helping myself to transition from where I am now to where I hope to be, and I hope they would also be helpful to the people that these products end up with.

When certain things invoke certain moods that greatly inspire me, I try to recreate these feelings and introduce them into my products so that hopefully, my customers can feel these moods and feel the same way that they inspire me.

You can find them on Instagram and their online shop.

The Botanicals Greeting Card Range

Miss Artsy-Crafty was started on a whim of spontaneity, as a blog, in early 2015. I wanted a place to share my thoughts, creations and everything I find beautiful with the world. Due to my love of writing and photography, my blog became the perfect place to do so. Over the past two years or so, I’ve prided myself on curating a blog with original content and it has grown beyond what I ever dreamed for my little corner of the internet, thanks to the continuous support I’ve received from my family, friends and readers alike.

I’ve always been a lover of paper goods and stationery, so when I started thinking that it would be lovely to start creating some products, naturally, stationery felt right.

I’ve spent the past while creating, designing, negotiating, number-crunching and emailing my little business into existence. I’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity and support of the creative community around me.

The Botanicals Greeting Card Range is inspired by foliage, modern typography (in particular, my own brush-lettering), as well as lovely peach and pink tones. I’ve poured my heart and soul into the creation of these cards, and I’m thrilled to finally be able to share them with you.

It’s been a rollercoaster so far and the ride has just begun.

So, friends, I present you with my greeting card range. I hope you love them as much as I do.

If you’d like to order some, please me an email and I’ll be in touch.

Made in SA / Party Bunch and Co.

Hello

Yay! So, this is the first post in my new series, Made In SA! I’ve discovered so many creative brands that started here in Cape Town, my home town and I’ve decided that there are a few I really want to write about!

Today I will be writing about a few of the products from Party Bunch and Co. 

Party Bunch and Co was founded by a lady named Jozelle right here in sunny Cape Town and she describes their brand as ‘on trend paper stuff for homes and parties’. I started following her on Instagram and fell in love with the modern feel of her products. Anyways, here it goes.

Tall Memo Notebooks

P1020141

When I first saw these, it immediately reminded me of a midori notebook. They have just the right number of pages to record one or two trips and they make great project planners and to-do list books too. When it comes to watercolour paints and pens, the bleed-through of the paper is pretty minimal. They’re a great size too.

Notecards

These are really cute and come in  variety of different patterns and designs. They can be used as mini art prints, journalling cards and gift tags too. The paper they are printed on is quite thick too.

At the moment, I love anything with the banana leaf print. These would look great on the table for any party or occasion, but I think they look great used as mini greeting cards too, and again the paper is quite thick.

Gift Tags

P1020157

These come pre-stringed and three in a pack. They’re nice just to quickly tie onto a gift. Again, I think they make cool journalling cards. (Oh, and covering up the whole? Washi tape to the rescue)

Fine Art Print

P1020166.JPG

These are so lovely. The paper is thick and has such a nice texture. They’re modern and minimalist. Here’s how I used mine (with a greeting card as an art print too below it).

Greeting Cards

I love this card. Its square-shaped and it’s a little art print too. They finish off any gift so well and the receiver can frame it too! It’s a win-win!

P1020159.JPG

The inked cards are beautiful too. I love the brightly coloured envelope that comes with these cards. I used mine as an art print.

P1020158
The texture is lovely!

I’ve had such fun writing this and opening up each product and trying it out! I’ve just started a creative midori journalling challenge of my own in the tall memo notebook and I’m hoping to share some pictures of that in a project update soon soon!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it!
