A little something: Download & Print

Let's move that sad and depressing announcement down a little, eh?  But, as a swift update, I am meeting with my old firm on Friday to discuss coming back...that's good news!  Can you all collectively cross your fingers at 10:45 am on Friday for me?  (Btw, this is totally the lazy woman's way of going back to work...no resume submitting, no interviewing.  I know I'm lucky if this works out.)

Those of you who know me well, know I have a "thing" about invitations/stationary/paper goods.  I love them.  In a kind of inappropriate way.  I can spend hours trolling blogs, Etsy, and the little paper boutiques in my neighborhood for beautiful stationary and creative invites.  What I love even more is when I can find beautiful invitations for cheap.  When I came across Download & Print, I may have fallen out of my chair.  Take a look at some of the lovely designs:

The designer, Anna Skye, is pretty talented.  And the VERY BEST PART?  You can download these all for FREE.  Yes, free.  As in no charge, nada, zip, zilch.  If you have a good printer, you can print these at home for the cost of paper and ink.  Or you can save the .pdf and take it to a printer.  I'm in love.  I hope you are too.

(Re-reading this...I sound like a paid reviewer, which I am not.  Just a simple girl with a love affair for pretty designs.  And free stuff.)

GORGEOUS! I have a paper obsession too. I love these designs and am trying to come up with Necessary Occasions on which to use them.

Consider my everything crossed for you on Friday. There is no way of going back to work that is lazy, but I'm rooting for the option that puts you in a place that's comfy for you and your family.

I second bessie viola's sentiments--nothing about heading back to work is lazy.

I hope it works out for you and it takes some of the sting out of this transition.

OMG, those are GORGEOUS! A friend gave me some Crane notecards once with a teeny tiny red ladybug on them and I have been hooked on notecards, invites, etc. ever since.

Thanks for sharing the link!

OOOoooo, so prettty! Thank you for sharing! Did you see Daily Candy today? There is a new stationary shop in Roscoe Village, http://www.dailycandy.com/chicago/article/82781/Village-Paperie-Gifts-Opens.

(Hope going back to work ends up leading to good and happy times for you & the family, and that the transition is super easy.)

Thanks, my friends, for all the good vibes you're sending my way!

Mary, I haven't seen that new store yet but you better believe I'll stop by soon! Thanks for letting me know about it.
