My daughter has just turned seven and in the first grade and she is just beginning that stage where she loves to write letter to her friends and experimenting with creative writing. she is also in that stage where it is very important to have her own identity and her own things separate from her little sister. She is also very aware of the world we live in and is on the forefront of living an eco-friendly lifestyle so she is an advocate of us purchasing items that are recyclable, made with recyclable material, biodegradable, and items made with sustainable resources. That is why when I had the chance to review Night Owl Paper Goods I became down right giddy with excitement.
I ordered my daughter the Scootin' Hedgehog journal and within minutes of it's arrival it was gone from my grasps. I literally had around ten minutes to inspect and review the item before my daughter came running down the stairs to confiscate it (she was very excited and asked daily if it came!). When I asked later to have a better look at it she declined my offer and said it was her "new secret journal" but if I had any question to just let her know! Every night I watch her tuck the journal under her pillow which is now filled with her own thoughts and dreams.
When the journal arrived it came in this adorable drawstring reusable bag which was such a nice extra that has now found home with my youngest daughter as a carrier for her baby things. The journal cover was made from birch wood and is sturdy enough to withstand even the toughest of conditions (or the tiniest of hands). The journal comes with recycled paper that is line on both sides for extra writing room. The comfort of knowing that the journal itself is completely biodegradable, made from recycled and sustainable materials, and is made in the United States makes my heart sing with pride!
Night Owl Paper Goods also sent me something a little extra which I was super excited about. They sent me a few of their cards from their Christmas selection. Each one was made of wood and so unique. I hate to admit it but I am one of those woman who love to outshine the other ladies and purchase things that leave a lasting impression even if it costs a few dollars more. I love when someone opens something that I purchased and the discussion turns to me and where I purchased such unique and interesting items. These cards are the type of items that begin an conversation and that is why they will be my Christmas cards this year! I love everything about them~ their whimsical, classic, fun and I love them!
Night Owl Paper Goods can be purchased from their on-line store or a fine retailer in your area. For new product announcements, specials, and up to date news follow Night Owl Paper Goods on Facebook and Twitter.
