What I got for Christmas 2014…

A bit of a showy-offy title I know, but I thought I’d share the stationery related items I got for Christmas: A handkerchief disguised as an A4 sheet of lined paper, and a pin/brooch disguised as a fountain pen nib, both from my mum. Finally got my hands on my dream scissors, by Hay, from… Read more »

They recently got in touch to let me know that they’ve launched their new online shop, which you can check out here. I think my favourite thing about Studio Sarah is that although they have fairly simple… Read more »

A stationery themed proposal…

This isn’t the usual thing I’d share on this blog, but I thought a few of you may appreciate it, so here I go… On Friday morning, my boyfriend said he’d been allowed to go into work late (as he’d worked late the night before) and asked if I would like to join him for breakfast… Read more »

London Design Week Picks: Pulp
