She who has not Christmas in her heart will never find it under a tree

March 11, 2007

Don’t you just love this sentence? I discovered it in a catalog found in a clothing store in Veghel. We went into this pretty store, called Object – from the catalog I learned that they’re Danish. Anyhow, they had the best catalogs lying around, and I always collect free paper- junk mail, advertising post cards, etc. These catalogs are just beautiful – the designs, the fonts, the papers… I took three, but I wish I had the guts to take more! One has vellum pages with sketches on them:

the other has pretty papers in it:

and the third is constructed from large circles. It has a beautiful sturdy tag on the front, the circles are catalog pages, but their backs are postcards with beautiful sayings and drawings:

Β Lots of cute sayings in there, like the title of this post, also “you are the sweetest thing”, “anti stress objects”, and more – in the most beautiful fonts, of course. I love these types of discoveries even more than buying new paper in the store!

    You know, a graphic designer is always looking for good ideas… πŸ˜‰ I tried to find a URL for Object, but couldn’t. Isn’t there a URL on the catalogues that you could tell me? πŸ™‚

    Hi there!

    I’ve been assigned to you via Create A Connection. I wanted to get your address so I could send your craft.

    Also, I wanted to send a warning that I’m not the most talented artistically. I’ve checked out some of your stuff and other bloggers and I’m a little intimidated. πŸ™‚ With that in mind, I hope you’ll like what I send.

    I agree with you. Paper doesn’t have to be expensive to be valuable! Free is lovely!
