#RymanLovesPens – Writing Matters

I had the pleasure of having a lot of brilliant conversations today. One that stood out was about pens – and more specifically, about writing. As a child, I was taught using pencils and pens. I made my notes by hand. Every year, as technology advances, the number of people making notes by hand seems to go down. And since it is #RymanLovesPens, I wanted to take a moment to stop and appreciate the fact that I do write. Writing truly does matter – and having a good pen just helps make the experience even more fun.

#PaperchaseLovesLists – A List A Day Journal

It’s the first day of National Stationery Week! I am really excited that this week is finally here. I have a lot to share with you. Glad that I can finally start kicking off with the celebrations now. So let’s dive right into it with today’s theme: #PaperchaseLovesLists! It is a day sponsored by Paperchase, dedicated to lists and why they are amazing.

Lists are very popular for many reasons. They are probably a growing trend among people, actually. There is a variety of different listmaking challenges and books available out there. With this theme in mind, it seemed only apt to share one of my own journals for list lovers from Paperchase themselves. So without further ado, may I present this ‘A List A Day’ book:

National Stationery Week 2019 – #NatStatWeek

National Stationery Week 2019

The long awaited National Stationery Week 2019 is almost finally here!  In one sleep, we will wake to a week long celebration of all things stationery related.  Yes, that’s right, seven full days of stationery.  At the Aumsome HQ, every day is a day full of stationery though.  However, it’s really nice to be able to celebrate with likeminded people – stationery addicts.

National Stationery Week (#NatStatWeek) is a great way to encourage more people to get writing.  So many people have not held a pen or pencil in so long!  Technology is taking over, with everyone emailing or direct messaging each other.  Digital planners exist or online calendars.  Ask your friends, family and colleagues when the last time they wrote something with a pen was?  The answer might surprise you.

My #The100DayProject, featuring Stationery Self-Care

#The100DayProject TitleI spoke about a few challenges that are occurring April recently. One of them is #The100DayProject. I wanted to talk about it in a bit more depth and share some ideas that I have had for this project with you. The 100 Day Project is an opportunity to be more creative. It challenges you to pick up any creative projects that you want to do and dedicate the next one hundred days to it.

The challenge officially started on the 2nd April this year. However, I am running a little behind and so, I am going to start it today, on the 13th April. You can definitely start it at any point though and just do a hundred days from whenever you start. I was trying to come up with ideas on what I should do. So I wanted to share what I came up with. If you have not started and want some ideas, hopefully this will inspire you.

If you’re already doing it, I would love to see your own challenge! Let me know what you’re doing. And mostly, good luck to everyone taking part!
