Taab London

You may have seen me mention TAAB London a couple of times before, but I’ve been meaning to properly feature them ages! The designs are the work of London based Thomasin Arnold-Baker, who train at Central St. Martins. They sent me an intro package a little while ago, and as I keep using all the bits… Read more »

Moustache Stationery: Bullet Journaling

I’m a bit late on this one but I still wanted to share April’s Moustache Stationery box because it was a really good one! The first thing that struck me was the new packaging, with these stationery graphics that I think are on point. The content was focussed on giving you everything you need to… Read more »

Pretty amazing, right? You can find out more about his crayon work here, and get some insight into his… Read more »

PAPERGANG!

I recently featured some Ohh Deer products, if you remember. They then offered to send me one of their new subscription boxes. It’s called Papergang, it costs a tenner (£9.95 to be precise) and is delivered once a month. They popped in this cute postcard with my box, which whilst I found mildly amusing, my… Read more »

Boring Conference

On Saturday I went to Boring Conference. The concept for the conference is that if you take ‘boring’ subjects and talk about them in enough detail, they’re actually quite interesting!
