cute, cute idea...
hip downtowners opening ceremony are offering old-school candy-grams á la junior high. got your eye on someone special? $3 for each; you can either stop in the store and scribe your own sweet nothings or ask them to jot it down for you online. your lucky recipient will receive an email directing him/her to visit the shop to pick up their cool card and lollipop on-site.
screened, embroidered, rubber-stamped, hand-illustrated.... i love how easy it is to hack these into your own thing. more back to school fun with these adorable notebooks from various etsy sellers:
golden girl silhouette on navy or red from cutiepie company
pretty 2-color dahlias from ink whimsy
clean, precise embroidery from papermode home
charming little umbrella from by belinda
lovely hand-painting by mary's granddaughter. those doll arms kill me!
