monogram stationery

my MIL's birthday was this week. she's one tough lady to shop for and i've exhausted all my creativity on her recent christmas gift and other birthdays, so this year i decided to go the homemade route.

i found these cute letterpressed letter tags (products of my favorite place, natch) and created some simple notecards around the design.

she loves brown and cream and decorated her whole house in those colors, so i thought something neutral would be just right for her. no stamps, no wild paper, no ribbon. just something elegantly basic.

i did want to spice it up a little bit, so i added some polka dot lining inside [which also helps written notes to show up a little better]. happy birthday to you, momma j!


  1. Great idea! I love monogrammed stuff these days too. I'm sure you MIL will love it.

  2. v. classy! i never thought of making cards for someone else to use. great idea!
