For someone who spends a vast amount of time online, I do love a good piece of stationery. Evernote and the like can shove it, you’ll never part me from my paper notebooks. Where other bloggers fill their IKEA plant pots with make up brushes, mine is filled with pens and pencils. And Smencils. That’s scented pencils to the uninitiated.
Staedtler Fineliners, Sharpies and gel pens, fancy patterned calculators, neon highlighter tabs and mini rubber stamps. These are a few of my favourite things.
Muji don’t just do make up storage y’know, they also do awesome acrylic magazine files. And when the magazine file overflows, they get cut up and go in the folder.
A small selection of my notebooks. There is nothing I love more than a good notebook! NOTHING! A cute notebook is honestly one of the best presents you can get me. Some of these have a use – my Nail Polish Diary (cats), my Job Hunting Journal (skulls, obvs), and my Ticket Stub Scrapbook (you can work it out), the rest are still to be assigned but no less loved.
And the current cream of the crop – a polar bear eraser. I couldn’t bear (haha) to use him, instead he stills on my desk looking up at me, reminding me not to make mistakes lest I have to rub his adorable little face in it. Here he stills on top of my current blogging notebook. It’s a little beat up because it goes everywhere with me. Not shown are my matching orange pens (one blue ink, one black). I’ve got the stationery addiction bad.
Slightly random post there, but I had to get the love out! How do you feel about stationery? Please tell me I’m not alone in marveling at its wonder.
