As most of you will know, I am a massive stationery fan! I have so much that I am never at a lost for notebooks, or anything stationery related for that matter. Recently I found out that today, Wednesday 26 April 2017 is World Stationery Day, I swear there is a National Day for anything and everything now a days. I jumped at the chances of celebrating this day as I am a stationery addict.
I am sure you are all thinking what exactly is World Stationery Day, what is the point of this celebration? Well, after some careful research on their website, I have learnt a lot about the day. It is a day of celebration for the written word and all things stationery. Their aim, to get people all over the world talking and writing about stationery as well as speaking about why writing by hand is important.
I can not believe how fast 2017 is going! One minute it was 1 March and now March is finished and April is in full swing. That means a wrap up of my favourite things from March. For me, March was pretty busy as I traveled a lot during the month, first I went to London for an interview for a Magazine Training Course with Press Association.
I had a lovely time in London, I was only there for a day but as the interview was in the morning, I was able to spend the afternoon sightseeing! Which I loved as I haven’t had a stroll around London in a while, when I went for my Autosport interview for the Junior Programme I was busy all day. Press Association is based a ten minute walk from Buckingham Palace, so I jumped at the chance to visit there.
I am very excited to show you something that I recently received, I was luckily enough to receive March’s #Paperhaul, a monthly subscription box by Crafty Creatives. I’ve seen this box for a little while now, but never got my hands on one until now. I have heard a lot of good things about #Paperhaul and I was not disappointed when I opened the envelope!
#Paperhaul is an exciting stationery subscription that celebrates great design and high quality stationery. Contents of the box will vary each month, but you could expect, greeting card, postcards, sticker sheet, notebook, mini notebooks and wrapping paper. The subscription box is delivered monthly and costs £10 plus £2 postage.
Before you can move forward with the New Year, I think it’s always good to look back on the previous year to see your achievements. Looking at it, 2016 has been quite a successful year for me! A lot has happened and I am really proud of myself. I thought I would share with you today my highlights of 2016.
