For the Love of Leo

It's August! That means the final days of summer vacation as well as the end to Leo on the zodiac calendar. I happen to be a Leo and this year I had a couple requests for gift ideas. That question always leads me to Etsy. I never have a problem there finding items that are handmade with care or vintage goodies; both of which I adore. Below are just a few of my August themed favs.

The Love of Notebook Paper

June is a big month for me. Not only is it flag day (a.k.a. Mr. a. favorite design's birthday), it's also my mom's birthday, father's day and is filled with many friend's & acquaintances’ birthdays, more than any other month, in fact. Naturally, I spend a lot of time shopping for gifts many weeks before & all month long. On more then one occasion this has led me to obsess about notebook paper products. I found some amazing gifts and I can't help notice they pair perfectly with my notebook paper cards!
