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 »

Rather than do either 1 massive blog post, or several similar ones, I thought I’d make a quick video about the contents of the boxes. The thing that’s interesting about… Read more »

Insights on Insights-X

Friday and Saturday before last, I went on a stationery adventure! I headed over to Nuremberg, Germany to attend the Insights-X stationery trade show. I hadn’t heard of the show before they got in touch with me, but it ran for the first time last year and as part of their 2nd year, they were… Read more »

Book Review: Cut It Out! by Poppy Chancellor

A few weeks ago I went to TWO celebrations to mark the launch of Poppy Chancellor‘s incredible new book, Cut It Out! I went to the launch party, where we celebrated with Prosecco and Vicky’s Donuts (so good!), and then the next morning I was up bright and early to head over to Penguin’s HQ… Read more »

Grief, and the importance of writing stuff down

Just over two weeks ago, I lost my mum. It was a massive shock and at the moment it feels like I’ll never quite get over this. I know that time is a healer but at the moment it feels pretty tough, especially for my dad who has been by her side for the past… Read more »
