Yesterday I found myself giving in to my inner design-a-holic and picking up a few pieces from the Linea Carta collection I posted about. In addition to the tiny heart napkins that will soon be fancying up our take-out dinners, I picked up a few packs of gorgeous stationery from Diva’s line (the orange flowers and pink garland). Intending to use them for Christmas thank-yous, I felt that twinge of jealousy about giving them away to someone else as soon as I ordered them. I’ll be blunt: when it comes to cards, I’m a crazy jerk. I hoard them like they’re currency and wait until I have the perfect time/place/person for them. So I have a feeling that as soon as these arrive in the mail, I’m going to want to find a special reason to use them for something else. Which means I may need some additional cards to use for thank yous . . .
Enter my new favorite line of cards: Dear Hancock desk cards. I loved the holiday cards when they were up on Erin’s blog before the holidays and was super excited to hear from Gwendolyn at Dear Hancock about this sweet line of illustrated desk cards. In my dream life, I have a beautiful desk styled just so with little knick-knacks here and there, but in reality it’s a boring Ikea desk. So when I saw these cards I thought, “Ooh! It’s my chance to live vicariously through each of these little dream desk worlds!” My favorite is the “Naturalist” desk, but there are six desks to choose from, as well as a close-up work station design and — the best — a custom designed desk specific to your interests and hobbies! You can pick up packs of six cards for $14 right here, but you can also browse their full line of greeting cards and custom designs (I love the hand-holding/daisy wedding design below). If you’re looking for some fun stationery to spruce up your New Year, check out Dear Hancock — they might even inspire you to redecorate your desk. xo, grace
