Shop Profile: Ink Whimsy.

Let's put it this way--the term "paper goods" doesn't do Ink Whimsy's Etsy shop any justice. With so many colorful and imaginative notebooks, paper garlands, recycled map envelopes and stickers to choose from, we're thinking paper greats may be the more appropriate description.

Patterned notebook, $5.

Vintage map sticker seals, $4.50.

Color burst paper garland, $9.

Pennant notebook, $3.50.

Set of 10 vintage map envelopes, $11.

Part of our week-long "Colors" series. More finds all this week!

Theme Of The Week: Colors.

Turquoise, pink coral, blue curacao, avocado green, lavender...we can't get enough color. Even Pantone, the color identifying/matching guru, crowned "honeysuckle" their 2011 color of the year. Bold choice, Pantone--bravo!

Meet (and embrace) Pantone's color of the year, 2011.

This week, we're bringing you a little pop of color. Each day, we'll match up our favorite handmade and vintage Etsy finds with our favorite Pantone colors--how awesome is that?! Fabulous finds, bold can't go wrong with that! Even the black and white lovers will appreciate this one.
