a sure-fire way to know that the holiday season is upon us (apart from the christmas carols playing ad-nauseum in the supermarkets) is the sudden appearance of the new year calendar. just in case you needed to be reminded that 2012 is O-V-E-R. on to the next! here are some of my favourites (there are a couple in my recent gift guides too).
design i like that seem to have a common thread of pastel colours and bold type.

i really like the idea of Love vs. Design where you can choose templates for your wedding stationery, personalise them and then have them printed yourself (or get them to print for you). this obviously isn’t a new concept, but the fact is that there are some really nice designs to choose from – so it’s a pretty cool option for people who are on a budget and don’t have the luxury of hiring a designer to whip up their wedding invitations.
i’ve been looking forward to the launch of Our Paper Shop ever since Emma mentioned her and Bre‘s new collaborative online project on her blog. well, they’ve just launched this week – so go check out their shop (i love the paris postcards, naturally). they even have a beautifully photographed lookbook… these are not your average paper pushers.
okay, it’s official, i have found my favourite website in the world. Simon Foster is a designer and former DJ who has rolled his love of design and music into the magically epic Decorated Playlists. i have already made my way through Run For Cover Part One and Part Two featuring cover songs 99% of which i didn’t even know existed. not only is the music selection superb (and highly educational) – the site is an absolute dream to use.
