The Stationery Edit

National Stationery Week started at the beginning of the week and ends on Sunday 6th April - what better time to put pen to paper and celebrate your love of stationery?!

I will openly admit it - I'm a stationery fiend - I love notebooks, pens, writing paper, coloured washi tape, notecards... You name it, I have it somewhere at home in a drawer or cupboard.  But before you start calling me a hoarder, let me just say that I use all my stationery! I'm quite old-fashioned like that - I love sending (and of course receiving!) letters, cards and more and I also love taking the time and effort to wrap and decorate my gift packages for others! I must have at least ten unused, pristine notebooks but I will find a day to use them all - with each page featuring ultra neat, tippex free prose...that novel awaits!

I love the fact that beyond sharing a love of stationery, National Stationery Week is all about getting more people back into writing by hand, especially children, not to mention teaching people to correctly spell 'stationery' (with an 'e' not an 'a' people!)

So this week, forget about whatsapping, facebooking, texting and tweeting - send someone you care a handwritten letter or note!

I've rounded up my edit of favourite stationery of the moment to help you get inspired!

  1. I'm doing a stationery post this week too and included the Kate Spade set too. Quill is the best for stationery, I think...
