Flow magazine: an ode to creativity and paper

IMG_8439-001IMG_8502I’ve got to tell you guys about this amazing magazine for paper lovers called flow.  It’s from Amsterdam and has been around for years, but only recently in an international edition.  It is also about positive psychology, imperfection, and life’s little pleasures… helping readers reflect on their happily busy lives.  In the Netherlands, they even publish a holiday edition, calendars and stationery, and even special issues on topics such as mindfulness.  I mean really, they may as well have named the magazine, “You hoo! This is for you, Naomi!”
