The Letter Writing Essentials kit has arrived just in time for National Letter Writing Month! 

Thoughtful letter writing is very dear to me, so I was thrilled when Kate and Isabel asked if I would like to contribute my stationery label sets to their endeavor. It's an honor to be a collaborator in this gorgeous kit, available in the Of Note Stationers shop.

The kit includes:

• 12 letterpress printed letter writing sheets–8.25" by 5.75"

Gift Guide for Letter Writers

Hello!

Over the years, these are the kinds of tools and stationery I find myself using daily at my desk or for letter writing on the go (preferably outside!). Many of the objects I use are vintage and one-of-a-kind but I also value collecting useful tools that are design and created by craftspeople across the world, so this guide reflects those values. I am pleased to share my ideas of gifts for letter writers and I hope you enjoy supporting these businesses that I admire. 

Enjoy!
Julia

P.S. The guide is divided into two sections. The first section is paper goods and the second is devoted to desk tools.

Ephemera and Letter Writing for Write_On
 
Using Ephemera in Letter Writing - Eva Moon Press
 

Last month, I had the pleasure of participating in the Write_On Campaign by sharing my process of using vintage ephemera in letter writing on their lovely blog. I teamed up with my pal, photographer Tanya Pavolova. We spent a fun, sunny afternoon together on this photo shoot and I am so pleased to share it with the world.

You can read my words and see all the photos here: Using Vintage Ephemera in Letter Writing

Enjoy!

Design: Rooted Gypsy Farms

Over the past few months, I've had the chance to work with Rooted Gypsy Farms in developing their branding and website. I am really pleased with how everything came together. The farm grows unique vegetables and herbs year-round thanks to their greenhouse and aquaponics system. I am really fond of their mission to provide nourishing produce for their community in Colorado.  

Please visit their website at Rooted Gypsy Farms to see more of the beautiful photographs by their photographer, Tyler Logan
