This website and blog are my creative outlet to share daily inspiration, good design, my artistic and DIY endeavors, inspired fashion and styling, and even some of my favorite recipes here and there.  It will also be the platform for gracefullyNOTED designs, which will be launching in a couple of weeks.  I am really excited to share my artistic process and to present quality stationery, paper goods and prints for both everyday and special occasions.  It is something I have always loved and been passionate about and I can't wait to introduce it to the public soon!

In high school, I developed a love for the works of Vladimir Nabokov. In short, I became addicted - reading everything I could get my hands on. To this day, he is still one of my favorite authors. So, when I found out he used an anagram for his name in some of his works, such as in Lolita, I really wanted to create an anagram using my name, Meghan Harcar, for any creative endeavors I may undertake. What I ended up with was Grace H. Harman - not nearly as cool as Nabokov's Vivian Darkbloom - but special to me. And ever since then, I always knew that if I ever started a company of my own, the name Grace would have to be involved. Combine that with my love of all things stationery, paper and type related, and gracefullyNOTED was born.

Thank you for visiting! And I hope that you come back soon!
