Instantly stationary for stationery ~ Guest Post

Today I'd like to introduce you to one of my most favourite girls, Katie from The Resolution Revolution. She has a little secret passion that she wanted to share with Looking Glass readers. I'm sure many of you share this passion too, as I do. I'll now leave you with Katie aka The Procrastination Princess.

I love stationery! I don't know why, but I am stopped in my tracks whenever I come across a stationery shop, even if it is just a "mainstream" store like OfficeWorks. My heart skips a beat when I encounter a rare and beautiful boutique paper shop, or if I find an example of fine letterpress work. So, this post today is dedicated to the power of papercraft; the colours, the textures, the limitless possibilities. With a modern or vintage touch, paper is beautiful. 

I stumbled across this stunning blog on the weekend, and am in stationery heaven. Bella Figura are a genuine artisan letterpress shop, that still use antique equipment and old fashioned methods...and the results - magic!

Have a look at some of their work:


 
Their retailers are just as dreamy:


But there's more to paper than just invitations:

Paper bouquets!

Paper Plane Wedding Toss!
 
 Paper Chains & Flower Banners!

And check out this toilet paper wedding dress here.
 
Just a bit of fun, and eye-candy, especially for me! I'm in the midst of writing a pretty full-on essay with a lot of heavy scientific content... so this was a welcomed break from the science, and a great little creative outlet.
