i heart...

I Build Collapsible Mountains.

By far one of my favourite musicians & also one of my favourite people, so I'm very happy to say that we're featuring him - the lovely Luke Joyce (who also happens to be an awesome photographer, e-mail him with requests) on our website this month.

The track 'Face Of Thunder Grin' comes from his upcoming album 'Spectator & The Act' which will be released through American label Burning Building Records on the 11th October. I've been lucky enough to have a wee listen to the other album tracks too & by Jove your ears are in for a treat.

I Build Collapsible Mountains will be playing in the GoNorth Tour stage at the Wickerman festival this weekend, so if you're going make sure to pop in for a listen & if not head on over to our website & have a listen now!

If you would like your music to be featured on our website, send your tunes to our Soundcloud dropbox.

Stationery Love

i heart...


I love it. I get scarily excited about buying new stationery. It was the favourite part of the year when I was younger, the once a year trip to Inverness to get the back to school necessities. Oh, the butterflies I would get picking out my pencil case & pencils & pens & highlighters & tipex...
This love continued onwards as I grew upwards, moving onto unique cards, diary and letter writing-like stationery goods and of course a good pen every now & then.

Well, my love & excitement for stationery is still as strong as ever and I am super happy about a whole bunch of new eco-friendly products we've just added to the stationery section of our online eco-shop. Eee! Here's some of my very favourites...

Bicycle Stationery Set

Instant Comfort Pocket Box DIY Kit

Poor Thing Card

Hooray! You Tied The Knot Card

Bird & Cage Stamp Kit

There's a whole heap more too, head on over to our online eco-shop for a look-see.
