I received a very cool package in the mail the other day from Sweden. It was from Therese at Archie Grand. Archie Grand is a company that creates these brilliantly colored and conveniently sized notebooks with witty titles. But, don't let the titles fool you - the notebooks all come with 160 blank pages for you to fill in with your own juicy contents. The paper is made to absorb lots of ink - which is always a good thing for me - my pens tend to bleed. You just get to choose the title and hue that best suit your mood. Personally, I thought that 3 of the best titles were "Brats I Met and Liked", "Suffragettes I Met and Liked" and "Pawnbrokers I Met and Liked". I share their sense of humor, quite frankly. Check out the whole selection here. These make great gifts for friends - real conversation starters, indeed.
