Postcard Airplane

Now you can send mail that can be immediately recycled into something fun.

…Excellent for kids and grown-ups who are just big kids, it’s made from balsa wood and the pieces easily pop out to form your very own loop-de-loop, flying glider. It’s much more fun than ordinary mail and once you write a little message on it, it becomes post with a bit more love and personality.

Daily Color Planner

Happy New Year! What better way to start off the year than with a new planner?
