I had this on my list to post today, but after peeking at Shelteriffic, I saw they beat me to it. Rascals! :)
Call me old school, but I cling to my address book for dear life. I’m completely lost when I leave home without it. I’ve had my cell phone die so many times (because I talk so much on it, imagine that?) and after it’s dead, I realize that I don’t have the phone number to call the person back. Not good. Since you can’t reboot a cell phone to gain access to its directory, you’re pretty much screwed at this point. Sure, you can go to a pay phone and dial 411, but if the person was also on their cell phone, there’s no way the operator will have that number. This, my friends, is why a good address book is a must-have. Don’t let anyone talk you into going 100% paperless. These sexy gadgets we roll with nowadays are only good until the lights start flickering and… Hello? Can you hear me now? So, my first grab is the Angela Adams address book for $13.95. You have to get you some of that. Plus, it’s wayyyy cute, just look at those colorful pages…
Next on my Angela Adams shopping list is for all the sticker lovers in the house. Your twinkle toes will curl in delight with the Box of Labels. For $15.95, you walk away with 100 peppy labels varying in shape, size, and pattern. Use them on your envelopes or as bookplates in your most cherished novels. Also handy for labeling shoe boxes and other containers in your closet or craft area.
Finally, a photo album. Remember those? In the digital age, we’re a bit hooked on uploading photos and storing them online, with the exception of maybe 5 that we decide to print out to display so we’ll always remember our days in Venice. Well, sorry to break the news, but photo albums are vital to transferring our memories to the next generation, and so on. Clutter phobes may cringe, but you should seriously consider having a few in your home. I can totally see my adorable grandkids-to-be huddled around my photo albums cracking up over the way ‘grandma dressed back in 2006’. If owning a few photo albums is important to you, go stylish with the Lulu from Angela Adams ($35).
All of Angela’s collection of papergoods can be purchased via her website.
Psst: Most are not available on the Chronicle Books website until after October. Scoop yours up today!
