I first learned about bullet journalling when I was watching Lily Pebbles videos on Youtube and fell in love with the concept. I spoke to my auntie and she had already been bullet journalling for a while and shared her tips and where I could buy the essentials. I fell in love with creative outlet it gave me, I was able to design my layouts and be proud of what I had created. I have used a variety of different planners and journals, bullet journals are definitely the ones that not only make me the most productive but the ones that bring me the most joy. If you want to read about my old bullet journal you can see the post here. I thought I would share some of the pros and cons, so if you are undecided about whether it is for you, hopefully this post can help you. Read More
If you are a fellow stationery lover, then I am sure you are also a lover of washi tapes. There are SO many different designs, colours and sizes. I have so far around 50/60 different tapes, no I am not ashamed and yes I am always looking to buy more ha ha! I get asked questions on my blog and social media about what you can use washi tape for, so I thought I would share a list of 25 ways you can use your tapes.
When I was sent the Stampin’ Up! set at Easter to make cards, I enjoyed making the cards so much. If you would like to see the set I was gifted or the designs I made you can see them here. After making these cards I wanted to participate in a card swap, Lena expressed an interest when I posted on Twitter and we arranged to send each other 3 cards. I was so excited for this to be creative and hopefully make Lena smile. Read More
I found CharrWillson Stationery on Instagram and her feed was stationery goals, so I knew I had to share my thoughts. I sent a private message and Charlotte and I got to chatting. Charlotte expressed an interest in working with others who share the same passion and I think she understood that I was stationery obsessed haha! You only have to look at my blog or my Instagram to know this.
I love brush lettering it is so beautiful and there is so much inspiration on Pinterest. It makes me want to practise more and buy all the different coloured brush pens that I can, yes that is the slight stationery addict within me saying this haha! I was contacted by the lovely sisters at Keikaimono about collaborating with them on their brush pens and I was so excited. Stationery is a big passion of mine and I could try new coloured brush pens yayy!
I love collecting mementos, I have always kept hold of special birthday cards, tickets and receipts for special days ever since I was young. I love being able to look back at memories and remembering the feelings of happiness and joy.
To keep all the beautiful mementos I decided I would start scrapbooking these to keep them safe and I have a place to store them all. I enjoy scrapbooking as I find it such a relaxing activity, it also allows me to be creative. It also means I can dig out my pritt stick and any excuse to use washi tape haha!

Happy Stationery Week! It is the last day of Stationery Week, so sad. But definitely doesn’t mean the end of stationery on this blog haha! Today is send a letter day and I thought I would put my own little twist on this day. I decided to send little letters in card form to some lovely bloggers.
Happy Stationery Week! I can’t believe it is near the end, it has been so much fun being extra creative and sharing everything stationery!
