Keep passing notes, the teacher isn't looking

My wishlist from Chronicle Books is growing larger and larger by the minute. Somebody stop them from selling such cute paper goods or I'm going break and go on a shopping spree I DO NOT need to be going on.
I've been meaning to learn the art of stitchery. Why not learn with some cards?
Stitchable Stationary $14.95

"Stickers for projects, home organizing, and gift giving." I love stickers and wouldn't this be a perfect gift for your label obsessed friend?!
Crafty Stickers $10.95

You could use this stationary for just about any occasion and with all the variety, you'd never tire of writing notes.
Correspondent's Delight $31.95

Ok, these might be slightly superfluous but they're adorable and would be a cute addition to a package.
The Cutest Sneeze in the World: 30 cat postcards 9.95

I would take a handwritten note any day over an e-mail. What about you?

Agreed with the handwritten note - but then I save them and the clutter grows! I too love Chronicle - everything looks so fun!!!

100% agree... snail mail beats email hands down, any day of the week. And those cat post cards are calling my name!!

snail mail...i remember when my then boyfriend was in boarding school and we would write to each other. no email, no cell phone, no texts...how did we do it???

Lauren Jade said...

I agree..I still send people handwritten(which isn't pretty but I try) and i love it! ITs so much more thoughtful...although this day in age I appreciate any form of thoughtful communication.

koralee said...

Oh dear....I love all these books...and I do agree..we need to get back into sending handwritten notes...I try! Off to find some of these titles !

jen said...

i love the sneeze postcard! that really is the cutest sneeze ever!

Lemondrop Marie said...

Treu, a handwritten note is so much nicer, but I am an email girl. I want my GRANDMOTHER to email me before calling, I just can't have that phone glued to me all day!

Erin said...

Oh my gosh, The Cutest Sneeze in the World is pretty much the cutest thing ever!!!

i love handwritten notes. i miss those days when pen pals where my form of texting...oh the memories.

captivate me. said...

I definitely agree, hand-written notes are so much better! This is inspiring me to look for a cute stationary set... hmm... :-)

The Cottage Cheese said...

Uh-oh, I'm tempted. And I already have an entire box full of crafting stuff that I don't use. I have tons of old ads, magazine cutouts, and supplies, but I'm intimidated by the Mod Podge. One day soon I'll spread out my crafting stuff and just play for a couple of days.

Kristin said...

Yesssssssss. Stickers. What little girl doesn't love stickers? Ok, so I guess I qualify for big girl status now, but I still heart stickers.

Diana said...

Oh man, i love that publishing site.

I have the notebook of one of the stationery sets and i so want the first one!!

plainbananas said...

Seriously, Chronicle Books must stop coming out with all this cuteness. I love snail mail and I can't stop till I have every single set Chronicle comes out with. Everything's to die for...

drollgirl said...

GAH!!! this post is killing me! i love it all! and i gasped aloud at the sneezing kitty stuff!!! hah a hahah. FOR REAL!

i walked into this store..jam paper in nyc and it was like...nirvana...i looooove stationary.

Michelle said...

I actually saw that stitchable card kit at the MFA store the other day! It was in my hand the whole time, but I decided to put it back and try making them on my own. Still need to get to that...Keep up the great work with your blog!

Gabby said...

I REALLY want the Stitchable ones! Too cute.

Haven and Home said...

Oh this is doing nothing for my non-spending I am trying to be so good!

michelle said...

if you love snail mail so much, maybe you should get a pen pal. like maybe a friend who lives across the ocean? just a thought.

pixelhazard said...

I would too but whenever i send a letter or a note, i get an e-mail in response, sad really

Quixsa said...

I completely agree! Growing up my cousin and I would write old fashioned letters back and forth. I have kept every single one and treasure each. E-mail cannot compare.
