Every week is Stationery Week

National Stationery Week is over for another year but, when you’re A Cornish Geek, every week is stationery week. You can still expect to see a post a week dedicated to my favourite paper products and I want to take a minute to wrap up all of the awesomeness from last week.

You might also have noticed that I went to the London Stationery Show for the first time. I got the train up and back in a day so I could spend a few hours networking and researching upcoming trends. Next year I’m going to try and stay overnight and pop along to some workshops and talks too. It’s such a great event. I’ve already got some collaborations in the pipeline and will share a few of my favourite brands below. This is quite photo-heavy but you’ve gotta see how pretty.

I fell instantly in love with the diaries and journals from Peter Pauper Press.

I met Narcyz from Narcissus and had a chat about bullet journals. He has a fab range of soft notebooks and hardback journals, plus an extensive washi line.

The Show featured an exhibition of new products, which led me to the awesome day planner from Hello Day. Definitely one of the most beautiful stands.

One of my favourite brands, which I hadn’t heard of previously, was Legami. Would you just look at this fab range? Desk planners, notebooks, staplers, washi… So much cuteness.

The pastel trend continues to reign at Stabilo‘s stand but it looks like it might be time to make way for the metallics.

I was also treated to one of Dingbats‘ new journals! I’ll be sharing a full review post soon, so here’s a little preview.

One of the highlights of the show was the trends stand and tour, led by Scarpet Opus. They discussed four upcoming trends in the stationery world: clarity (products that calm and enrich our lives), imperfect beauty (celebrating imperfection and repairing what is damaged), own your impact (creating a super-sustainable lifestyle) and out of the ordinary (finding the magic in modern life).

It’s been a while (pre-baby) since I was up London way, so I had to get a few snaps of Paddington.

Paddington Station

I had some time to kill at the station so treated myself to a little Paperchae haul. When in Rome and all that.
