Night Owl Paper Goods (& their awesome sales!)

head-logo

From their website: “With a passion for fine craftsmanship, detail & the environment, Alan Henderson and Jennifer Tatham went out on a limb to start Night Owl Paper Goods, a stationery company devoted to creating handmade letterpress cards and eco-chic wooden goodies.”

“Goodies” is right. Their products fuse Scandinavian motifs and nature’s sweetest creatures, often with wooden backdrops.

Not only that, but Poppytalk alerted me to the occasional one-day sales on the NOPG website. Today, for example, there’s a 50% off sale on NOPG’s jotters (aka, notepads)! Go forth and conquer:

Wordshop Wednesday: Sprout Head!

iusb_760x1005149414

For this fourth installment of Wordshop Wednesday, I would like to introduce you to the adorably crafty and poetic Sprout Head. Sprout Head sprouted into my life yesterday, via Poppy Talk‘s lovely introduction of highly purchasable holiday ornaments. I clicked on the link to Sprout Head’s Etsy shop, and…well, that’s pretty much where the obsession began. Check out the genre-bending (hehe, get it?) sprouts for yourself:

AWESOME.

Though I kinda wish someone would have made a “Barack the cradle of love” poster, with the Billy Idol sneer in the background or something.
