London Stationery Show 2016

Reader, I failed! On Monday I said I’d blog every day this week and I only got as far as Wednesday. This week (like all my weeks it seems) ended up being super busy and I’m writing this from a hotel room in Scotland before going to a wedding. I may not have blogged very… Read more »

Happy Stationery Week 2016!!

Hi guys, It’s National Stationery Week 2016 – hooray! Forgive me for re-using my image from last year but there’s not much opportunity to share it and I still love this picture! Plus, I don’t have time to do another! I just thought I’d check in to let you know what is going on and… Read more »

How Marbled Paper Is Made

Guys, I cannot recommend enough taking 12 minutes and 52 seconds to watch this video! It’s a mini documentary about Cockerell Marbling and was made in 1970 by Bedfordshire County Council. I love everything about it, from the clipped voice of the narrator, to the music – even the Bedfordshire County Council logo is spot… Read more »

Paperchase Spring Event

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to Paperchase‘s spring event for bloggers, which gave us a chance to look around the new collections it he flagship store, learn a couple of new crafts and catch up with/meet some other bloggers. It looks like kraft and gold is having a bit of a moment… Read more »

An Origami Wardrobe

I’m a little bit obsessed with origami paper. The neat little squares have always appealed to me, even as a kid. Not even the origami itself necessarily, just the paper. I thought this set I saw in Muji in New York was particularly pretty. If memory serves correct it was $5.95. I adore the traditional… Read more »

And Smile Studio Colouring Prints

Last week I met up with two lovely ladies – Laura from Cardboard Cities and Viktorija from And Smile Studio – for a cheeky Nandos. Ha! In our defence it was VERY cold, we’d been walking for ages and it was the first place we came across. Anyway, I’m not here to talk about that, I’m… Read more »

2 Years in Stationery

2 years?! How did that happen. I’ll kick things off by saying that this isn’t a “New Year, New Me” post. It’s just a coincidence that my blog-iversary (sorry) happens to be the beginning of January. The 2nd in fact but I was flying back from NYC that day so am only just getting around… Read more »

Stationery at My Wedding

HOORAY! After almost 11 years together, Harry and I finally got married on 28th November. I try not to share too much personal stuff on here, but I thought you guys may appreciate seeing a little bit of how I incorporated stationery into my big day – of course I had to! We had an… Read more »

Bic Biro and Razor Advert

This is an oldie, but a goodie. It’s from 2008 but I hadn’t come across it until now. This is a print advert from Bic (published in The Netherlands), in which they advertise two of the products they’re most know for in a really clever way! On page 3, a picture of a man which… Read more »

Meticulous Ink Hand Lettering Workshop @ Snowden Flood

London Design Festival slightly passed me by this year. It’s a real shame as there’s usually so many incredible and inspiring things to see, and so much stationery! Unfortunately it coincided with a really busy work week for me so I didn’t get to go along to any of the shows. I did however manage… Read more »
