We were so excited to hear about Moniek Paus' soon-to-be-released Graduation Guide for Design Students! And Since we're true believers that every design pupil, no matter how many years they've been out of school, is in need of some work inspiration, we can't wait to get our hands on the book! Be sure to boogie right over to designworklife for a full review of the book.
Yippee!!! The 2012 London Olympics are here! Us ladies here at Haute Papier, have been watching the trails and putting in our favorite votes. As the world watches, we'll be watching for our favorite events. After an afternoon of chatting while letter-pressing, I asked some questions to the team. Here are our answers!
Sarah responded with the following.
Which is your favorite sport to watch and why? Gymnastics
What one are you most excited for? I love love love watching the Open Ceremonies to see all of the performances and I love watching the finals of any sport. From rowing to the marathon to the beach volleyball, I've got them all DVR'd!
If you could participate in one sport what would it be and why? I'd say the marathon. Having been a distance runner, it would be the ultimate for me in terms of competing in an Olympic event!
Erin was up next!
Which is your favorite sport to watch and why? Overall I like swimming. The athletic ability of Olympic swimmers is amazing! And the male swimmers have the nicest bodies in all of athletics so that's not too shabby of a reason to tune in :)
What one are you most excited for? I love the opening ceremonies! I love seeing the world come together every four years to celebrate national pride in a positive way. I also can't miss the women's gymnastics finals.
If you could participate in one sport what would it be and why? Probably women's soccer or field hockey. I played both growing up and so the learning curve might not be too terrible!
Purnima your turn.
Which is your favorite sport to watch and why? I would have to agree with Erin and say the swimming!!!
What one are you most excited for? I find all the sports to be wonderful! I am going to stick with swimming.
If you could participate in one sport what would it be and why? I would have to say participating in the floor routines for the gymnastics events!!
Kate, last but not least!
Which is your favorite sport to watch and why? I have a few favorites! If I had to pick one it would be volleyball! I played in high school and it was wonderful to see the teamwork play out!
What one are you most excited for? I love the gymnastics events!! It is unbelievable how they focus and balance on such a small beam. I am just amazed in their strength.
If you could participate in one sport what would it be and why? I would love to participate in the equestrian events! I have no horse riding skills, however I would find it enjoyable learning.
Good luck to all the competitors and we will be routing on the good old USA!

A few days ago, in the midst of her annual Spring cleaning, my mother came across a special piece of artwork I made when I was seven years old! She emailed me this picture and proceeded to explain how I used to hand paint note cards and sell them to my friends and family. I have to say though – minus the awful clip art and misspelling of “stationery,” my price point was right on... not exactly! Clearly, I’ve been passionate about stationery from a young age!
