It's not very often that my to-do list is completely cleared when the weekend rolls in, but this weekend the weather was so, so nice and everything was already crossed off my list of to-dos. So Jeff and I took Luna to the dog park and did a lot of walking around (soaking up the sun).

Now that it's Monday again, my list is piling back up, but that's fine by me.

I actually like planning out my week, and I am kind of a paper freak, so notes and to-do lists get me excited.

Which leads me to you... I am hoping you share my affinity for paper because I have a little Monday inspiration to share this morning, thanks to Miki.o Stationery and Paper Goods.

Modern, colourful, classic and funky DIY printable wedding invitations, save the date cards, personalized labels...notepads and lovely paper goods.

Notepads for organizing...

And really cool wedding invites ...

I am not going to question it, but the weather has been non-stop beautiful since Friday! And it had just put me in such a great mood. This is one of the things we did over the weekend (you can see what a nice day it was too). Then we hung out at home, after a little shopping. And I put the finishing touches on the new exhibition (which just went up this morning).

One of many new shops in this totally new exhibition is Lil3birdy, which is run by artist Clare Shields. Her work is really fun and sort of captures the spirit of our weekend, so I wanted to share a few of my favorites from her Etsy shop with you to round out the day...Love the way she plays with repetition...

1. (above) owls notebook

2. insects and bugs postcards (love, love, love these)

3. patterns and birds gift tags

I'll be back bright and early tomorrow morning to share Tiffany's part II article on pricing. The last one was super juicy (over 250 shares combined on Facebook + Twitter), so be sure to pop in tomorrow to read her second installment.



San Francisco based artist Julia Kostreva has an online shop featuring 2012 planners, notebooks, pillow covers and art prints. I really like her clean, colorful designs and I'm especially smitten with the planners seeing as how better organization is always my list of New Year's resolutions. Check out Julia's full selection goods here.
