It's all about the paper. By that I mean page 76 is for paper lovers and letter writers. The title is "The Write Stuff," and it is easy to find at http://www.marthastewart.com. I read about the upcoming stationery piece from one of the artists, whose work is showcased. Katharine's prints elevate stationery to a whole other level of handmade--even if you're in the habit of making your own. Visit her blog and see for yourself. http://katharinewatson.blogspot.com/.
You know I had to check out each offering in "The Write Stuff." I wanted to see for myself, and see if I would buy what Martha recommends. So I did. Okay, I checked the ones that interested me. Hautepapier.com's has foil stamped craft-paper envelopes with white note cards in the "Gold Standard" Arrow Mail set, which is up my alley at six and six for $18. My jones was for the one thing I did not find not/could not find. The Pocket Books. Then again, I read when I have to wait for something, and waits are never long enough to pen, Dear Friend, I am writing to you while waiting for my annual pap smear, mammogram, or therapy session. That slips to the low totem space right above "Hello, I can't talk right now. Let me call you back." Why answer the phone if you can't talk. Right? So why, oh why would I try "jotting a letter while on the go"? We can still buy something from Martha's Mail Makers though. I'm just grateful for the offerings. I'm a letter-writing-paper-lover too, you know!
