This week we celebrate all things stationery with a whole week devoted to the art of all things desk-worthy. Today itself is actually National Stationery Day, win win! As you know I design stationery and am an all round lover of all things pretty in this arena and all that to say I know I’m not alone at all because so many of you obsess over new stationery to the point where it’s hard to actually use it and ruin it’s beautiful shiny, newness.
Today I’d like to introduce you to Maker Monthly, a concept that definitely ticks all my boxes! If you love stationery as much as I do (and I know lots of you do) then you’ll probably get a little heart flutter to learn about these monthly subscription boxes, filled with premium notebooks, art supplies and creative curiosities delivered straight to your door. It’s the best post you’re likely to receive and with a different selection each month it will keep you on your toes waiting for the next paper party to drop through your letterbox.
Happy Friday people! I can see your tired out eyes lighting up as you leave work and travel home for the long weekend and even though I only need to travel from my table to the kitchen this evening I share the tiredness and excitement! To make things all the more sweeter I’ve illustrated some jolly free desktop wallpapers for August (just). I’ve been very aware that September is fast approaching and it made me think of all the fun of new term stationery. You know the drill, that feeling of satisfaction when you arrived on the first day back to school with your sparkling new pencil case, untouched pencils and perhaps even the latest gel pens to grace the shelves of WHsmith. I still haven’t grown out of that and I know many of you are total stationery magpies too.
So come join the stationery party and download your free desktop wallpapers right here! As I said last time, please do use #somethingforyourscreen if you post any of my monthly wallpapers on Instagram. It was such fun seeing you guys get on board with the brush lettered sayings from last month. Have a lovely weekend!
