Happy National Stationery Week 2017!

What’s that I hear you day? Bringing out that picture for a third year in a row are you? Yes, yes I am. Because I’m too busy/not at home much at the moment so haven’t had a chance to do a new one 🙁 Plus, I still kind of like it though. ANYWAY, the point of… Read more »

Going out of my comfort zone…

A couple of weeks I did something I was scared of… A writing workshop. I was scared for two reasons; 1. because I hate writing and have very little confidence in it, and 2. because I am not a morning person. However, despite my reservations, I decided to go along to a Write and Shine… Read more »

Pencils According to… Me, on the CW Pencils Blog

Just a very quick one from me today. I was recently very excited to be asked by Caroline Weaver, of CW Pencil Enterprise fame, to do a little pencil related interview for the CW Pencils blog. Of course I said yes, and worked my way through her questions such as “If you could only use… Read more »

Review: Say Nice Things Journal

How lovely is this pastel geometric design? So pretty. Say Nice Things are a UK based company selling notebooks and journals, and they are very proudly designed and manufactured in the UK. This has been on my to-review pile for such a long time – which is completely a reflection on me, not the notebook!… Read more »

Mini Review: Robert Oster Fire & Ice Ink

Continuing my series of Tessa-talks-about-the-thing-everyone-is-talking-about-but-a-few-months-afterwards, I’ve had a play around with the much-hyped Fire & Ice Ink by Robert Oster. I’ve called this a mini review, because I’m no ink expert and I can’t give you much more insight other than how it looks and a little bit about how it behaves. If you’re looking… Read more »

Review: Baron Fig Askew Notebook

In classic All Things Stationery style, here I am talking about the product that everyone is talking about…. Except I’m talking about it about a month later. Gah. I can’t keep up. Baron Fig’s Askew seems to have been a bit of a contentious one, and a lot has been said about it already. It’s… Read more »

Review: Artline Stix

I like to think I don’t get drawn in by things like this too often but I saw a facebook video a few weeks ago, which I think was this one, showing someone using Artline Stix and promptly ordered a few from Tiger Pens. I didn’t want to buy a big pack so I just got… Read more »

Valentine’s Cards from UK Illustrators and Designers

About this time every year I’ll talk profess my hatred of Valentine’s day and then still do a post on it… The thing is, I know I’m in the minority, and i think it’s good to have an excuse to champion some independent UK companies/illustrators/designers. I thought the best way to do this would be… Read more »

Review: Mossery Planner 2017

I’m feeling a little paper-overwhelmed at the moment (as in, I have more than I can possibly ever use), but like any good addict when Malaysian brand Mossery got in touch asking if I’d like to try their 2017 planner notebook, I couldn’t say no! I’ve always been curious about this brand, as I’ve seen… Read more »

January Favourites @ The Stationer

I don’t want to make ATS all about The Stationer, because that’s just not that interesting for you guys. And I hope you will have seen that since I started The Stationer I have kept up my normal kind of content. One thing that I thought would be nice to do though is to do… Read more »
