Tuesday Treat – New Stationery

Well, I had a whole other blog post planned for today and then the postman delivered something that has thrown my morning into chaos: stationery. Yep, new stationery. I’ve received a¬†little box of goodies from the lovely people over at Viking and I am in a state of bliss right now. I’ll blog about the items in more detail over the next few weeks, but for the moment, I have to share this picture of my new Post-its.

I’ve already started using them and have written down all my ideas for blog posts that have been whirling around in my head and stuck them to my wall (the ultimate post-it test – will it stick? If so, how long for?). I’m like a kid at Christmas, and that is very excited. Seriously. I’ve written before about how much I love stationery and paper, but this delivery has put me over the edge into euphoric! What’s the one thing that would make you smile, no beam, from ear to ear like a kid, right now?

Tuesday Treat – Back to School

Is there anything better for a stationery geek that going back to school? Whether you’re still in education or not, September is a great time of year to take stock and get some new stationery. I still have fond memories of heading to WHSmith (the only stationers near us growing up) and stocking up on Bic pens, felt tip pens and Tipp-Ex. What a joy! If I was going back to school, I’d definitely want to get my hands on these little beauties:

The hardest bit is deciding which notebooks and pens to get because I want them all! I also loved the whole new uniform, new backpack, new exercise books feel to going back to school, plus the possibilities that lay ahead. Did you like going back to school? Or did you count down to the next holidays?
