National Stationery Week | Calling all stationery addicts...

I always seem to have National Stationery Week earmarked in my diary - shows how much of a stationery addict I am! I love writing in my diary, writing letters and writing in an actual notebook - that also provides me with plenty of reasons* (*excuses) to stock up on pretty stationery!

National Stationery Week: In the diary!
National Stationery Week rolls around once a year, and runs from 27 April until 3 May, with the aim of celebrating the written word and all things stationery. The organisers say, 'writing by hand and being able to write by hand is as important as ever. It matters, and is one of the cornerstones of how we communicate with one another.' Further, their mantra is 'you can never have too much stationery!' and I couldn't agree more! On a serious note though, 2015 marks the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta - celebrating and reminding us how handwriting has stood the test of time, remaining as important now as it was then. Wednesday 29th April is World Stationery Day - what better way to mark this occasion then by putting pen to paper and writing a letter or card to the special people in your life, if only for one day instead of the usual email, text or whatsapp. Through celebrating stationery, the week hopes to get more people writing, more often - especially children - whether it's a little notecard, letter or postcard, or even just writing a diary or journal (all of the above for me!).

What better reason/excuse to celebrate National Stationery Week then to stock up on some new stationery? My edit of current stationery favorites is below.

Whilst we're on the subject of writing, a special shout out goes to TK Maxx for the fabulous notebooks available there - it's always worth popping in to have a look at the selection they have on offer at brilliant prices!

Love this 'dream' notebook from TK Maxx!
