spoonful - a happiness companion...

Life is frantic these feels like we are constantly on the go, running from one demand to another, and still we don't achieve enough.  We feel like there is never enough time in the day and never enough days in the week.  As mums, we constantly watch our children and marvel at their focus on the here and now.  They don't really care that the washing needs to be done, that there are emails unattended, or that Mum has a million other things to do - they just want you to be there with them, right there and then, in that moment. 

Well here comes along a beautiful little publication that is designed to inspire us all to see and think afresh the world around you, and even better - is short enough for us to finish before the end of a train ride!  Bite-sized in length, and filled with creative and uplifting quotes, stories and ideas - Spoonful is sure to make you smile after reading it. 

A perfect gift for yourself or a friend, buy yourself a copy here

Spoonful comes out 3-4 x a year so start your happiness collection now xx

washi tape at a whole new level...

Everyone knows our obsession with mt washi tape here at presse-papiers, and as addicts, we regularly read Ebony's delightful Hello Sandwich blog (remember who brought us the fabulous Gift Wrapping guide) as she always has a finger on the pulse with funky new awesome things to see from Japan!

Her latest news is super exciting!  Washi tape for your walls - can you believe it?!  So Sincol (a Japanese wallpaper, soft furnishing and flooring company) and mt have combined creative forces and come up with an amazing range of wall masking tapes that you can use for your interiors - work or home!

Have a look for yourself!  Our minds are ticking over a million miles an hour, thinking of what we would do with these wall tapes if we had complete reign over our homes!  And also, when are these tapes coming to New Zealand???

Excited yet? We know the feeling - happy mind shopping!

Susannah Tucker photography...

We were actually left a little speechless after finding these photos on Friday so beautiful and emotive, it was easy to lose oneself in the daydream as hoped by the photographer, SusannahTucker.  Each photo speaks a hundred words, and with the accompanying text, they really are just...perfect. 

As well as taking beautiful photos, Susannah writes a lovely blog about her creations and life.  Love, love, love!

You can buy some of these lovely photos for yourself at either Susannah's Felt or Etsy shop.

As we blogged about here, Paper Runway is a new quarterly magazine that is so much more than an average magazine - it is instead a collector's item for lovers of all things paper.  A little masterpiece that you will want on your coffee table, or perhaps on your bookcase if like us, there are messy little hands around!

And psst, you better be quick, we will only have 10 copies of Issue 1 available! And trust us, you want the launch issue in your collection :-)

You can pre-order your copy by emailing us at xx
