Does anyone else have a thing for office supplies?
I’ll admit that this is the area that I have the hardest time decluttering, and I might, maybe, probably have more notebooks and folders than any person needs, but I just love fresh, crisp paper, pretty patterns and a notebook waiting to be filled.
So when Invite.l, a Korean company expanding to the U.S., offered me an opportunity to try some of their products, I couldn’t resist! I poured over their online catalog (and I love that there aren’t so many products that your head spins).
And truly, this is when I fell in love:
It’s a Magazine Editorial journal with boxes in various sizes, shapes and patterns. Honestly, mine is still blank because I feel like this is a journal that calls for greatness, and I’m not yet sure how I want to use it. To plan Life Your Way content? To record memories and sayings from our girls? To plan my day? It makes me happy every time I look at it, though!
They also sent me this very cool 1000 Kinds of Stories journal. If you’ve read or plan to read Ann Voskamp’s One Thousand Gifts, this is the perfect companion to record your one thousand gifts!
Fans of simple notebooks like Moleskines will appreciate the simple grid pattern of the 1/4 Quartered notebook. And with a variety of fabric covers, you can dress any of these notebooks up if you’re looking for something a little fancier, although I really kind of like the simplicity of their standard covers!
I’ve been dying to get some washi tape for crafts & organizing, so I was very excited to see Invite.l’s collection of masking tapes in both solid colors and patterns. I love how they use it in their journals and notebooks in the pictures above, and I also plan to use it for crafts and as colorful labels around our home!
And finally, they also have a variety of bag-in-bags to hold your iPad and other electronics inside a larger bag. I typically carry either a market bag or a tote bag, which can get kind of messy since neither have a lot of pockets or dividers. I’ve tried purse organizers, but I really love how many pockets this Slim Bag-in-Bag has, including one for my iPad. It’s easy to move between bags, and I no longer have stuff falling out or getting disorganized while we’re out and about!
All of these products are high quality, creative and beautiful, and I have a feeling I’ll be revisiting this site often — both for myself and for gifts for others!
