Hey stationery fans! Thinking about spring-cleaning your desk/hoard? Then you’ll need some shiny new products. I’ve been searching the internet for the best new stationery for the new season.
High Street Finds
Over the past few years, high street shops have upped their game in the fun stationery stakes. Unicorns everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Which is fine, because who doesn’t love a unicorn? I’m starting off in Paperchase with the all important storage.
Look at all those compartments ?? For £10 you get a pretty home for sooooo many pens and pencils. If you don’t have desk space for something this size, you’re going to need an epic pencil case. WHSmith has the answer.
Squee! Bit too ott for you? They have plenty of subtler options to suit.
Ok, time for the filling!
£12 for a set of 12 coloured pencils (Paperchase), with a different mood or emotion stamped on the bottom, associated with that particular colour. You even get a little booklet on the psychology of colour.
For perfectly pretty pastel pens, head to John Lewis and check out the kikki.K range.
Marvellous, if you simple HAVE TO peruse your stationery in real life; but this brand has a pretty awesome website – trust me, you’ll love it. And with that, let’s head online for the…
Best of the Web (OK, Etsy)
As always, I began my search over on Etsy, and to be honest after much searching elsewhere, I headed back and stayed there. Being a maker and seller myself, I know how much hard work people put into their creations and love to buy handmade. If you weren’t aware, you can now purchase as a guest, so you don’t have to sign up for an account. Huzzah! You’ll have to click the links to see these beauties.
- Feather gel pens from ThePensnicketyCo.
- Anything from TheCraftRedButton, queens of beautiful stationery sets, but this letter writing set is my current favourite.
- The prettiest push pins you ever did see from GardenStudioCrafts.
- Floral washi tape from rowantreessupplies.
- Spring flowers rubber stamps from noolibirdstamps.
Is that enough to keep you going? I hope so! Don’t forget, you can head over to The Craft Fantastic Etsy shop for hand bound notebook and journals to go with all your new stuff.
