Desk: Mackenzie Sala
The desk: a dining room table, a kitchen table, and an old farm table all butted up against each other, lining the room with space to fold, glue, cut, and make a mess.
Chair: SKRUVSTA from Ikea. The darn cushion won’t stay on! I’m always sliding off it.
Paper: Yes! So much paper I couldn’t being to describe.
Calendar: is my lifeline. I use my iCal as a calendar and a master to-do list. If I lost it… There wouldn’t be any point in going to work everyday, because I wouldn’t know what to do with myself.
Clock: Not really necessary. When you work for yourself… anytime is work time!
Charging: my iphone, my camera
Inspiration: vintage fonts, nature, japanese prints, modern illustration, antique stores and long drives.
‘thank you’: no, thank you!
Flat note or folded: Folded! More room for pretty patterns on the outside, more room for writing on the inside.
Organization: is the biggest time saver I know! Ikea KASSETT boxes and corresponding BILLY bookcases are my best friends. Ribbon gets in line at the ribbon bar my Dad built for me – Best. Present. Ever!
Handwritten or emailed: Thank you notes and holiday greetings are always handwritten. Everything else is emailed.
Book: s are downloaded from iTunes and listened to while I’m folding and gluing. Currently When you are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris.
Color: I need a cheerful environment to motivate me, so I combined pale yellow walls with the rainbow of colors from all my color charts, color fans and ribbons.
Magazine: Cottage Living, even though I don’t live in a cottage. It looks like it would be fun.
Stationery: I use my own all the time to write notes and cards. I tend to horde other stationery, Nantaka Joy for instance, I like it too much to write on it!
Planning: a dinner party for 7 tomorrow night, we’re having Beef Stroganoff.
Business: Kenzie Kate Invitations
