Celebrating National Stationery Week

Going back to when I was a little girl (not too far back mind), I loved stationery. I had this massive collection of erasers. Dog shaped ones, character ones, ones that sit on top of your pencil, it was immense! As I have grown older my stationery obsession has remained with me. I don’t know if it’s being a blogger that sees me buying so many pretty stationery items, or whether I’m just generally a stationery geek!

Being a blogger generally sees me doing a lot of digital work, however when my Mac is turned off for the day,  I love the good old fashioned way of putting pen to paper. I have a bullet journal where I keep a record of many things, I have to do lists that I keep updated, I much prefer to write things down than to use apps or computers.

As you are probably aware, with all of this stationery talk,  this week is National Stationery Week.
