Stationery Swap October 2018


I’m thinking we can fit one more stationery swap in this year, I know they’re always popular!

This is a chance for you to spread some happiness with happy mail as you can enjoy putting together a parcel full of pretty papery goodies for your swap partner and then you get to unwrap their offerings as a treat for yourself. It is all round stationery happiness!

It is fun and simple activity to get involved with. All you need to do is pop a package of stationery bits and bobs together and send them out into the world to your swap partner so that they have received them by the end of October. You can include whatever you like, from notepaper to jotters to stickers to pens to clips to washi to postcards – it really can be whatever suits you. We’re not talking huge amounts of stuff here, just a pretty little parcel to brighten someone’s day, spending around £5.

The swap is open to everyone worldwide, aged 18 and over, and you need not blog or be active on social media to take part. You just need to enjoy stationery. If you would like to share, do post a photo of your stationery bundle with the #BringBackPaper hash tag or pop it in the Bring Back Paper Facebook group and we can all ooh and aah over it with you!

To get involved, email me with your name and address at jocelyn@thereadingresidence.com, and I will then pair you up and get back to you with your swap partner’s details as soon as I have done so. It’d be really helpful if you could let me know whether you’d be willing to or would prefer to post internationally, please. It’s open until 28th October 2018.

Is this something you like the sound of? Would you like to receive a bundle full of surprise stationery this month?
