There’s nothing quite like a little stationery haul to perk up my boring old week. I’m not sure it’s normal to get so excited about stationery, but hey, it’s the little things, right?
I popped to Hobby Craft this week, on the hunt for a pen to cheat calligraphy. I love beautiful inky handwriting, which is something I definitely don’t have. I’m left handed and my teacher in primary school basically though left handed people weren’t worth teaching handwriting, so my chicken scrawl leaves a little to be desired. I found this pen in the calligraphy aisle, it’s a flat tipped felt tip essentially, which means it gives the effect of pretty calligraphy without any effort. It was only a pound, and I want to use it in my Project Life scrapbook!
I also picked up this pretty mint sketchbook, for practicing different calligraphy styles too, it’s pretty, got gorgeous thick pages, and was a steal at £1.80! I also picked up this pretty starry notebook in the sale, for keeping in my handbag for on the go notes!
I managed to resist buying a ton of Project Life bits, but I did pick up these little sticky notes from the SmashBook section. I figured they’d be cute for my scrapbook, but also in my planner.
I popped into Home Sense after, which is normally my downfall, but I actually only picked up one thing that I needed, a little set of cute notecards! I love the pastel pink and the gold foil, these will be perfect for sending to my friends, and to use as thank you cards!
