The gift of a handwritten letter with Scribble and Daub
A couple of days ago, whilst on holiday from school, my youngest daughter heard the letterbox knock and ran to the door. She came through to me in the kitchen with a small handful of post. To my surprise there was an envelope, handwritten, which looked like a little note (and not a bill - ...

Custom return address stamps from Sycamore Street Press
I recently ordered some custom return address stamps from Sycamore Street Press and I am in love. Both with the stamps and with the fact that I no longer have to write out my address! (How did I not do this sooner? What a time saver!) I just got around to (finally) sending thank you ...

Heart Origami notepaper from Lollipop
As a young child, growing up in America, we would hand out Valentine cards to every child in our class. We used to create our own Valentine's Day letterboxes and tape them to our desks and everyone would go around sticking the Valentine cards into them. I remember taking home all of my Valentines cards ...

Getting organised with help from Lollipop
After a long summer holiday, I have come back to London to find piles and piles of unopened mail and unpaid bills on my desk. My to-do list is long (and growing daily!), and I'm struggling to get myself and the kids back onto a regular schedule. Waking up on Thursday morning for the first ...

Do you recognise this illustration? It was inspired by this photo which I posted a couple weeks ago! Chicago-based illustrator, Denise Holmes, liked the photo and thought it would make a cute drawing... and I know I'm biased (it's a photo of my daughter after all), but isn't it indeed SO cute?! Denise has a ...

After months of renovations, we recently moved into our new house! Hooray! Can you believe it was my sixth move in 8 years?! Insane. I'm so happy to finally be settled and to not have to move again any time soon. Phew! After all the moves, I figured everyone must be a bit confused about ...

Mother's Day cards you want to give... and receive
When I have time, I do enjoy making greeting cards. There’s something really gratifying about it. But, of course, I don’t always have time. So if I ever buy a card I always try to pick one that reflects something of the person I’m choosing for, and it has to be beautiful. Increasingly I also ...

Children's personalized stationery
Despite having lived in Europe for more than six years now, I still cling firmly to some of my 'Americanisms'.  Like sending 'thank you' notes for all important occasions, making peanut butter & jelly sandwiches for my kids, and relishing silly holidays like Halloween. My European friends can laugh all they want, but some of ...

Father's Day here in Australia is this Sunday! Buying cards for men is so much harder than it needs to be, don’t you think! Whenever I go looking usually all I can find are ones adorned with vintage sports cars or men playing golf. But what happens when your partner isn’t into either of these? ...

If you’re Australian and love stationery then you most probably know Kikki-k. That’s because this Melbourne-based but Swedish-inspired company (the uber-stylish owner Kristina is from Sweden) has been producing the most to-die-for designs for some time now. One of the things I love about the company is that they continually evolve, too. They’re always bringing ...

BIG #babyccinoreads: Large format reference books are great. We love that super-size allows for attention to detail, attractive illustrations and much concentration. With reference books, our need for specifics is all that more important. We like that reference books provide information on the exact hue of the orange of an Emperor penguin’s beak or which exact countries the River Nile runs through, so it’s easy for children to soak up. Today we share some of our favourite #bigbooks ... what are yours? @themontessoristudio

It felt as though it would never come, but the longest summer is now over, and we have truly hit Autumn here in London... It’s a time of mixed emotion, isn’t it – September. Schools in London embark on the new term now, so it always feels like the beginning of the year, even more so than January. New choices, new opportunities, new friends and teachers too. The changing of the leaves is so beautiful but also somewhat heart-wrenching, as we leave the long hot summer days playing... Read today’s new post by @themontessoristudio. It’s one so many of us will resonate with. #babyccinokids #babyccinotips
