I will be celebrating with lots of stationery related posts, as usual, so keep your eyes peeled!
Hello! Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet for a couple of weeks. It all got a bit busy, and then I was on holiday, skiing in the French Alps. Anyway, now I’m home, and back on it! The other day, a friend tweeted a link to this website (thanks Gav, if you read this!) and… Read more »
Ok, that doesn’t *quite* work, but I’m trying to illustrate is how brilliant these iPhone shaped notebooks are from Paperscreen, which I originally saw on Ed Jelley. Such a good idea. Very geeky, but I think it would look very satisfying on my desk! Would also be great if they provided an elastic so you could hold your… Read more »
My big brother is getting married tomorrow (!!) and in honour of this, and the fact that the wedding season has officially started, here are some of the internet’s best wedding cards: And so it’s not all too lovey DOVEy (^^^^ geddit?!)

How great are these! And my favourite: Doo Daa Studios are based in Brooklyn, NY and I think their Moustache cards are prettttty fun! They’re a tad pricey at $5.50 each, but they do do a set of 8 for $27.50 (about £17).
I visited SMUG a few weeks ago to do a Lino printing workshop and slightly fell in love with it, so thought I’d go back for a proper visit last weekend. It’s in the lovely Camden Passage in Islington, and here is what it looks like: It’s run by Lizzie Evans (you can read all… Read more »
I walked past this window in Islington the other was and was impressed by this novel way of using stationery! This person has created a cool (and cheap!) pattern using masking tape to act as a sort of window shutter to stop people on the street staring in! They probably didn’t appreciate me taking a… Read more »
