I LOVE stationery! Whether it is pens, pencils, notebooks, rubbers, pencil sharpeners, you name it and if it’s stationery I love it.
I was the child who used to love preparing to go back to school after the summer holidays because that meant new stationery. I was even known to use my holiday spending money and go and buy stationery in the local WH Smiths! One of my favourite purchases, which I can still remember vividly, was a pair of folding scissors which fitted inside my pencil case. I am also one of those people who buy lovely new notebooks all the time but then don’t want to “spoil” them by actually writing in them!
Anyway back to stationery, it is National Stationery Week here in the UK from the 27th April to 3rd May 2015, with World Stationery Day being on the 29th April. What a perfect excuse for drooling over and purchasing lovely stationery (not that I need any excuses).
With this in mind I have done a bit of a trawl of the internet to try and find some lovely handmade/crafty/small business stationery bits and pieces that I thought you might like.
There is lots of other gorgeous stationery out there, whether you are looking to replenish your own supplies or to buy as gifts for others. There are even stationery subscription boxes that you can sign up to now and receive a box of stationery delights each month.
Do you have a love of stationery? What are your guilty stationery pleasures?
