I have been hearing Compendium mentioned more and more often these days as having a lot of exciting releases … and based on what’s been hitting my mailbox lately, I’m inclined to agree. They have a ton of amazing releases for spring, so I’m going to run through a few favorites.
First up are the Motto Journals. As bright as they are compact at 6.25″ high x 4.31″ wide, the journals’ mottos are in gold foil. They feature pretty endpapers, ribbon markers and dots on the pages for any type of writing, drawing or sketching. $9.95 each.
I can think of several people who could use the “Love Who You Are” gift book — namely, anyone needing a little encouragement or going through a big transition, be it a graduation, new job or even divorce. The little book is pretty andy stylish enough to make most other gift books look bad.
It features a screen-printed cover (that feels already worn-in and well-loved) and a bright Wibalin binding. Inside, there’s charming illustrations paired with uplifting messages of encouragement (in amazing fonts no less): Begin by loving yourself. Love the tomorrows you’re heading into. Love that you will end up doing more than you can imagine. $9.95.
Finally, I love these powerful & gorgeous cards! On Words were created with the idea that the right words at the right time have an amazing power. Display these inspiring and insightful words (printed on super-thick paper) on a desk, pinned to a wall, tied on a package, around a bottle of wine — or send them off change someone’s world in their printed envelopes.
These were just released last month at National Stationery Show, so they’re not even on Compendium’s site yet. So if you want one, look for a store nearby and call to see if they’ve arrived! $3.95 each.
