blissen GIVEAWAY!



I don't have the "back to school" status which makes it hard to justify new outfits and paper products just because it's {almost} September. For those of you who still crave fresh pencil pouches and pretty pads of paper.. keep reading. This is where we tell you that no longer do you have to miss out. Better yet, Blissen is bringing us paper products and office accessories turned art work: all are "naturally full of color, sly humor and hand-tinkered style."

Jill Bliss, the bliss behind Blissen, is simply delightful and obviously brilliant. She says, "raised in two distinct environments, the suburban technological sprawl of silicon valley and the natural rural slowness of northern california, i must confess i prefer the irregularities of nature than the perfection of technology. no matter where i am, i need to build, make, and improve things with whatever materials are at hand."
From this came her unique line of handmade. All of it gently illustrates natural. We like that.

"we delight in improving our corner of the world - and inspiring others to do the same - using our hands, minds, conversations, and a little ingenuity, mixed with scraps of mainly found, left-over, or recycled paper and fabric. in our mass-produced world, blissen goods celebrate the genuine, unique, and irreplaceable aura of the handmade object, and the organic process from which it was created."

Three cheers for resourcefulness. And pretty resourcefulness at that! Let me share my favorite of her creations, {all available to win- one winner- by entering a comment on this post!}:


redwoods notecard set, $12.


forest coral notecard set, $12.


sealines journal, $12.


treelines journal, $11.


Be sure to also check out the pocket mirrors, fabric wallets and pouches, and endearing plush birds. I have always been drawn to Blissen {ever since my Native Herbs journal purchase at Anthropologie} and am beyond excited that her pretty has found its way to Tangled and True!

The great news is that with the coupon code "tnt," all readers will receive 25% off, active August 31 - September 7! What's in your cart?
