Stationery crazy

Monday, 30 April 2012

You all know I'm stationery mad, from detailed gift wrapping, quirky stamp sets and embossed home-made cards to petersham ribbons and golden foiled pencils - I love it all (and collect it all). I have a slightly unhealthy obsession that takes up one whole cupboard in my house!

It is one of those things I have loved since I was a little girl. My space-case was always filled to the brim with bright coloured fine-liners, glitter pens and personalised pencil sets. It just makes me happy. This hobbie could be attributed to the fact that I can't get enough of writing people little cards, sending letters or keeping travel scrap books.

I am definitely wanting to share my collection with you one day when I have enough time to unpack it all and photograph it, but here are a few beautiful bits and bobs.






*A little tip that a reader once gave me to help remember which is stationary and which is stationery (one of those that tend to catch me out) is the "a" represents cAr and the "e" represents pEn. Easy, hey!
