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 »

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 »

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 »
