Moustache Stationery: Bullet Journaling

I’m a bit late on this one but I still wanted to share April’s Moustache Stationery box because it was a really good one! The first thing that struck me was the new packaging, with these stationery graphics that I think are on point. The content was focussed on giving you everything you need to… Read more »

Pencil Shaving Flowers by Haruka Misawa

A photo posted by Haruka Misawa (@misawadesigninstitute) on Mar 5, 2016 at 5:57am PST Via Colossal, I saw these beautiful paper sculptures by Japanese designer Haruka Misawa. You can read about the idea behind it here, but essentially she noticed when sharpening pencils that the shavings resembled flowers and decided to try and reconstruct this… Read more »

Stationery Organised Neatly: All White?

Today’s Stationery Organised Neatly is concentrating on all white everything. I knocked this one up in a bit of a hurry, and it’s not one of my best… But still, I think it shows off a nice selection of white things. Items as follows: (from top left): Vintage labels from Present and Correct (featured on… Read more »

Christian Faur: Portraits from Crayons

Just a very quick one from me today. I saw this very cool video and thought I’d share. Christian Faur packs crayons into boxes to create images, as if each crayon nib (or end) is one pixel. Pretty amazing, right? You can find out more about his crayon work here, and get some insight into his… Read more »

This is my second experience of a Diamine ink. You can see my review of the Beethoven dark green here. The orange is another shade that I got in my Wick & Hide ink sample package. It’s also my first ever orange fountain pen ink. I wouldn’t normally go for an orange, it’s just not… Read more »

PAPERGANG!

I recently featured some Ohh Deer products, if you remember. They then offered to send me one of their new subscription boxes. It’s called Papergang, it costs a tenner (£9.95 to be precise) and is delivered once a month. They popped in this cute postcard with my box, which whilst I found mildly amusing, my… Read more »

Boring 2

Boring Conference

On Saturday I went to Boring Conference. The concept for the conference is that if you take ‘boring’ subjects and talk about them in enough detail, they’re actually quite interesting! And often funny. In their own words: “The Boring Conference is a one-day celebration of the mundane, the ordinary, the obvious and the overlooked; subjects… Read more »

Bamboo 7

A curious pen…

Last month’s Moustache Stationery box was on the theme of sustainability, and within it was one really interesting item: a bamboo calligraphy pen, the likes of which I’ve never seen before. Apologies, these photos aren’t up to my normal standards but this was un unplanned shoot! I was just sitting at my desk looking through… Read more »

Diamine Beethoven Ink Review

What better way to end National Stationery Week than with an ink review. The guys at Wick & Hide got in touch with me recently to tell me about their ink sampling service. You can either buy a set of samples from a certain brand, e.g. Diamine, J.Herbin or they have a monthly ink sampling… Read more »
