Friday Favourites #39

Have I mentioned how much I love that blogging keeps me in books and stationery? What else does a gal need for her life's happiness? I've built some fantastic working relationships with book publishers and stationery suppliers and I'm so grateful for the opportunities they provide me with. They're certainly keeping my postie in business!… Continue reading Friday Favourites #39

World Calligraphy Day 2017

When I heard that the Manuscript Pen Company were launching the first World Calligraphy Day, I knew it was something I had to get involved with. I've hated my handwriting for a long time (I swear it was ruined by learning shorthand!) and have been meaning to find the time to learn some hand lettering… Continue reading World Calligraphy Day 2017

Its Amazon description claims it's perfect for bullet journalling and it's not hard to see why.

Friday Favourites #38

I mentioned last week that I've brought back my traditional Friday Favourites for a few weeks while there's no #LittleLoves linky and, I have to admit, I've liked not having the restrictions of the read, watched, heard, made and wore themes. Especially in a week filled with stationery and books. Now that's a good week!… Continue reading Friday Favourites #38

A notebook and pen swap with The Crafty Lass and Paper Trail Diary

A few weeks ago I saw that Jessica was organising a notebook and pen swap and I had to sign up. I loved the recent stationery swap I took part in and wanted to take part in more.

stationery wish list

A stationery wish list

You may remember that I used to do 'item of the day' posts, where I'd share my favourite finds. I recently decided to switch to semi-regular wish list posts instead. It's been a while since the last one but I've continued to bookmark some of my favourite little treats and now it's time to share… Continue reading A stationery wish list

a new stationery community

A community for stationery lovers

I'm a massive nerd (shock horror!) - I've been looking for Facebook groups for stationery addicts and couldn't find one! I'm a member of different blogging and bullet journal groups but couldn't find one for stationery addicts - a place to share blog posts without being accused of focusing on self-promotion or spamming, and a… Continue reading A community for stationery lovers
