The Paper Nut featured in The Daily Candy



Now we're getting some real press! The Daily Candy is a free, daily online publication, one for each major city in the U.S., plus London. They email them out every day so you can get the scoop on the latest local shops, restaurants and designers in your area. Somehow, somewhere, they discovered ME. And I was contacted, interviewed, and voila! Really, it's very weird seeing how they interpreted what I said in the short phone interview. Hopefully it makes people want to check out my site!

This is what the wrote about me in Seattle's Daily Candy today, January 30:

"Xxoo ;-) is never as sweet as your scribble on a sheet.

Sincerely, respectfully, occasionally, you still need to pull out a pen to make your mark.

The Paper Nut will have you signing love always on anything from a thank-you note to a preemptive resignation letter. The new stationery line injects fresh life into note writing with unconventional graphics.

Referencing Scandinavian design and designer Jeanie Nelson’s internship at Kate Spade and incorporating circus-like characters, the Seattle-based line is distinct in a world of flowery letterheads. Give your regards on the collection of odd turquoise birds. Or extend well wishes on a card featuring lanky giraffes.

Everything’s hand-pressed on 100 percent Crane cotton paper and packaged in biodegradable materials. So you and your recipients have reason to smile.

Just don’t get too emoticonical."



One last note: there is also Daily Candy Kids! Something for everyone...
