Positive affirmations and sweary stationery from Calligraphuck

I love growing my Calligraphuck stationery collection. There's something about calligraphy which makes me feel fancy AF, so it's totally fine that this stationery is sweary. I already owned the flexi journal, list ledger and pencil case, so when I spotted the hardback journal in Abrams + Chronicle's catalogue I had to have it. A… Continue reading Positive affirmations and sweary stationery from Calligraphuck

Stationery porn: Gemma Correll Papergang box #3

I had to cancel my Papergang subscription a while back because we don't really have much in the way of a disposable income these days. But when I saw that there was a new Gemma Correll box on the way, I knew I had to sign up again. I did the ol' 'put-it-on-the-credit-card-and-worry-about-it-later' thang (not… Continue reading Stationery porn: Gemma Correll Papergang box #3

Stationery Swap [June 2018]

I've taken part in a few of Jocelyn's stationery swaps now and I'm never disappointed (take a look back at my August, and February swaps).

I use my bullet journal… Continue reading How I use my bullet journal to track my reading
