OK, here are a few autumnal beauties available now to help you feel fresh, upbeat and on it. We’ll start with a fine selection of notebooks, as there’s sure to be Read more >

Come Join the #BringBackPaper Club!

You may have spotted that I ran a pen pal sign up here recently. Well, it went down very well and I have to say I was a little surprised by just how many people did sign up for it. I’d imagined I would be receiving five or six people looking for pen pals, but it was a lot more than that! So much so that it did take me a few hours more than I’d anticipated to match everyone up, double check and then triple check that it all worked, before emailing everyone with their new pen pal details.

5 Reasons to Keep a Journal in your Family Life

5 Reasons To Keep A Journal In Your Family Life

Today I am delighted to be bringing you a guest post from the lovely folks over at Say Nice Things Stationery… We humans have always kept written accounts of our everyday lives. Whether carved into tablets (the stone kind!), decorated on cave walls or painted onto parchment, we’ve always found a way to reflect and record events for the benefit of ourselves and others. More recently however, as the digital world begins to take over almost every aspect of our lives it’s easy to view the written word as out of date and old fashioned in an age of pixels, Read more >

Getting Started with Brush Lettering

Getting Started with Brush Lettering

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, the Husband has decided to take up a new papery hobby, brush lettering. He’s always enjoyed typography, fonts, designing colour combinations, hand lettering and so on, so this does seem like a natural choice for him. For me, I admire it but I’m not a neat writer at the best of times so am not drawn to this one, though I have to say watching him practice and create does tempt me to have a go myself. Maybe when he’s out I’ll sneak a try! Anyway, if you fancy giving this a Read more >

I’ve been adding some new collections and spreads to it this month to support me in improving my health and fitness, so I thought it might be useful to share them here. At the moment, I already track my daily water intake and keep a food diary within my bullet journal, I do Read more >


5 Papery Hobbies to Enjoy

As regular readers will know, I run my #BringBackPaper series here hoping to inspire and get more paper enjoyed, more letter writing taking place, more happy post being sent, more books shared around, more news on beautiful products, and simply more indulgence in pretty papery goods. Books and stationery are my go-to pick me up treats. I’m always going to enjoy starting a shiny new notebook, settling down to write a few letters, covering envelopes in washi tape, or my first papery love and firm favourite, curling up with a good book. These things make me happy. They also help Read more >
