A friend commissioned this fabulous blank notebook for writing recipes in. Love the cover paper she chose! I cut out a section and added a title on the front.

Lunchtime Lusting- travel stationery sets

It’s a mere two weeks before I will be jetting off on a family holiday to Positano, Italy, for some much needed rest and relaxation. Of course I will be taking a notebook and pen/pencil with me, but sometimes it just doesn’t cut it to simply have a couple of items loose in the bottom […]

Customised stationery set

Very sad indeed! The winner, though, was my good friend Helen, who wrote in pink ink and […]

I love pens

Pencils, too. Writing implements in general, really. Love ’em. And I don’t care who knows it! Yes, it’s National Stationery Week, here at last to help get Britain writing. It’s actually got me thinking about my own pen collection and how I write, and I’ve come to realise that I’ve neglected things of late. Even […]

National Stationery Week – The Competition

In light of the upcoming National Stationery Week, I’ve decided to run a little competition amongst my Facebook friends (indeed, the ones who are actually my friends!). All they have to do is post me a hand written letter. That’s the whole brief, they can make of that what they will! As a prize, the […]

National Stationery Week! 22nd – 28th April, 2013

While National Stationery Week is a mere 7 days away, I am glad I’ve found out about it at least a little in advance. As it says on their site, ‘National Stationery Week is a celebration of the written word and all things stationery.’ ¬†And just to be clear, that’s stationery with an ‘e’, NOT […]
