The Poundshop!

Since I moved to Peckham I’ve been slightly overwhelmed by the plethora of pound shops in the area (for those of you not in the UK, these are shops where you can buy anything in there for a pound, funnily enough). I keep getting told off for popping in to get some toothpaste and coming… Read more »

The Society of Crossed Pencils

Today I am declaring that I am  proud member of The Society of Crossed Pencils I’ve been a fan of And Smile Studio for aaaages (especially all the PERFECT Wes Anderson illustrations!), and actually sat opposite the lady behind it, Viktorija, at a recent flower arranging workshop I went to, but didn’t realise until I… Read more »

Moustache Stationery Blogging

Dear reader, I’ve been cheating on you… I’ve been moonlighting over at the Moustache Stationery blog, providing a bit of content for those guys. In case you’re interested, here’s a round up of what I’ve been writing about over the last month. Why Do We Love Stationery So Much? I pondered why we’re all so obsessed… Read more »

What’s Your Doodle?

I was thinking recently about how I pretty much have 3 stock doodles that I do. I thought I’d share them with you… And I just want to make it very clear that I am NOT an artist. In fact, it often frustrates me that I can’t draw. Anyway, here they are: The first one… Read more »

That’s One Use For Post-Its…

Have you guys seen this? In Brazil someone wrongly parked in a disabled spot and some people decided to teach him a lesson by covering his car in post-it notes… So funny. It doesn’t look like anyone captured them actually doing it, but someone caught on camera the man’s reaction when he got back to… Read more »

Kickstarter: Mr Bingo’s Hate Mail Book

This wasn’t what I was planning to post today but I saw it a couple of days ago and thought it’s SO good, and actually kind of connected to Monday’s The Importance of a Handwritten Letter post.  So, there’s going to be a lot of bad language in this post so if you get offended… Read more »

The Importance of a Handwritten Letter

We all love getting a handwritten letter, and (for me anyway) it’s quite a rare occurrence these days. I also wish I sent more letters and am always impressed with people who take the time to do it. Pen Heaven have started a Handwriting Matters campaign, highlighting the importance of getting people writing by hand…. Read more »

BLOGTACULAR 2015

It’s taken me a week to digest! But I think I’m ready to write about my Blogtacular experience. I’m just going to talk you through my day… FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER Blogtacular organised an informal dinner at ChaCha Moon the night before, which I thought would be a nice ice breaker, and I’m so glad I… Read more »

Blogtacular & West Elm Photowalk: Southbank

You’ll have to forgive my slight foray out of stationery this week, but I went to my first ever blogging conference, Blogtacular, this weekend so wanted to report back on a few things I did, thought, saw, discovered. More on the actual conference later this week (when hopefully I’ve had a chance to digest it… Read more »

On taking a step back…

I decided last night, that after making myself feel guilty all weekend because I haven’t set up this week’s blogs, that actually, it doesn’t matter. And I should have a few days off. I mean, I’m failing at that clearly, as here I am blogging, but on a different subject matter; on taking a step… Read more »
