Another Mother's Day is here,
Bringing joy and pleasures new,
On this special day, Mother dear,
I want to remember you.
With Mother's Day just around the corner I wanted to share some items that would make lovely gifts for your lovely mum.
A gift card is always a great option if you have an artsy mother that likes to pick out her own supplies, or if she has some picture she'd like framed. I always like to add that if you don't live anywhere near our store but would still like to purchase a gift card, we can also take payment over the phone as well as mail the gift card out to whoever you wish with a personalized note. Cards available in any amount.
A few more gift ideas: Beautiful Watercolor Moleskines. Scrap paper bundles (as well as lots of full sheets of decorative paper from around the world). Beautiful art and reference books. Watercolor blocks and pads. Soft cover sketch and drawing pads by Strathmore. Travel size watercolor sets. Colorful pocket notebooks. 150 Prismacolor pencil set over $30 off!
These are only a few gifty ideas so come in and visit us this week! We have a lot of different sales going on and would love to help you find exactly what you're looking for.
Thanks for reading!
Love from the IBF team,
This week I would like to showcase a very special item that we currently have in our store. If you're a sucker for beautiful handmade papers like I am, then you will love these hand-marbled papers and envelopes that we purchased from a local paper artist. They are so incredibly intricate and gorgeous, the pictures hardly do them any justice.
We have business size envelopes in all different designs for $2 each as well as full sheets of paper that are anywhere from $6-$8 depending on the design. So, if you're looking for a good way to impress somebody with a hand written letter, this would make the perfect stationary to do that on! Mother's day card perhaps? You can also use the full sheets of paper to cover your journal or create a one of a kind handmade book.
If you've never seen how marbled paper is made, check out this cool video of an artist in Florence, Italy showing his process.
Thanks for reading friends!
