It's the new year! That means it's time for new office supplies. (That's MY rule!) Save a few bucks by updating the stationery you have rather than buy all new stuff. This quick makeover will help you stick with your resolutions in the office!
Show your leading lady just how much you care (or how refined your sense of humor is) with one of these clever Valentine's Day cards. Carina from Crow and Canary rounds up 10 of her faves below -- check it out!
Valentine's Day is right around the corner and, whether you're making or giving gifts (or not!), a clever card always goes a long way! This year, we turn to our favorite stationery connoisseur, Carina of Crow and Canary, for her top ten Valentine's Day cards for guys! Enjoy!
Fancify your homemade cards this season with this super easy DIY idea!
As an avid note-taker and a prolific list-maker, I feel like I'm constantly on the hunt for scraps of paper to jot things down on. So when I spied these DIY notebooks in NEON PINK and GOLD (!!!), I got a little excited at the possibilities!
You may remember my closet full of wrapping paper (only a small testament to my love of paper goods). Inside that closet is a box full of stationery: greeting cards for all occasions, little handmade notebooks, gifts tags, etc. What it's completely lacking is anything remotely as cool as these handmade string-tie envelopes! I love string-tie envelopes, you guys... and you can never find them in anything other than boring ol' manila. Can you imagine the possibilities if you knew how to make your own??
It's February 1st, and so we figured it was about time to find this year's most thoughtful and heartwarming greetings for Valentine's Day. But, it's now 2012, it's becoming increasingly difficult to find the best way to say "I love you" at the card store at the mall, or worse, the aisle at the supermarket. Times have changed, and there's a whole world of stationery out there to help you share your warmest thoughts.
For help, we turned to our pal Carina Murray of Crow and Canary, an artisanal stationery firm based in Portland, Oregon. First up, we're excited to have Carina share her favorite V-day cards for guys...no fishing poles, footballs, or TVs to be found. But there is pizza. And robots. And bacon. Which is exactly how things should be.
If your DIY skills aren't quite up to snuff, but you're still wanting to give handmade gifts to loved ones and friends, you're in luck! We've rounded up 23 fabulous hand-crafted items from talented artists, craftsmen, and creators across the Internet. Enjoy!
Got a web designer girlfriend? A graphic designer brother? We've rounded up our favorite gifts for the aesthetically inclined... and all for under $25!
It's back to school season and for many starting or returning to college, a white cinder block room awaits. Hooray for student housing! Balancing school, jobs, and a social life is difficult enough, so we're making sure your home away from home is as non-depressing as possible. We've rounded up a few of our favorite colorful essentials to make dorm life happy on the inside - and friendly on your student budget!
The other day I ate an entire package of raspberries in one sitting (which I suppose is better than a whole can of Pringles, right?). If you have a little more patience and, you know, actually plan to can, freeze, or gift your garden's fruit, may I suggest printing out these very cute, very FREE downloadable labels and gift tags?
Here at Curbly, we think Father's Day should get a little more play. Mother's Day is full of commercials, sections at the grocery store, fresh flowers, elementary school craft projects, and the like. But, for Father's Day? Maybe a sale at the hardware store? Some jokes about ties and cologne.
But not this year, at least not on Curbly. Yesterday, we kicked off the season with our gift guide for stylish dads, and today, we're sharing a roundup of handmade and independently printed cards from our friend and stationery professional, Carina Murray of Crow and Canary.
With two weeks left before February 14th, we figured it was about time to find this year's most thoughtful and heartwarming greetings. But, in 2011, it's becoming increasingly difficult to find the best way to say "I love you" at the card store at the mall, or worse, the aisle at the supermarket. Times have changed, and there's a whole world of stationary out there to help you share your warmest thoughts.
