Launch Giveaway #4 – Fountain Pen Friday

Launch Giveaway #4 status: Closed.

For the final giveaway for National Stationery Week, I thought it would be perfect to tie it in with Fountain Pen Friday.  I absolutely love fountain pens.  There’s something satisfying about writing with a fountain pen and ink.  I’m pretty sure it makes my handwriting a lot nicer than other pens too.  However, not everyone is a fountain pen user.  So for Fountain Pen Friday, I wanted to do a giveaway that was open to everyone but also tied in with the pens I love.  As a result, I’ve chosen to add the “J Herbin Rollerball pen” to the bundle.  This pen has a rollerball nib but uses fountain pen ink.  It’s a great combination, allowing you to experience the variety of colours and fun of writing in ink whilst using a nib that most people are familiar with.  Be sure to check out the other two giveaways running over here.

Launch Giveaway #3 – World Stationery Day

Launch Giveaway #3 status: Closed.

As National Stationery Week continued on, I find myself falling more in love with the industry – if that’s even possible.  Being a stationery addict is incredibly fun.  Unfortunately, it also meant I was so busy that I didn’t manage to get this post up in time.  In honour of World Stationery Day, which was on Wednesday, I wanted to giveaway this second stationery bundle.  You can find the other giveaways for National Stationery Week over here.

Launch Giveaway #2 – Pen and Pencil Day

Launch Giveaway #2 status: Closed.

In true better late than never style, I thought it was about time I did the other three giveaways I promised in honour of launching a new domain.  The first one is a planner bundle, that you can find here.  Whilst these next three will be small stationery bundles, each slightly different.  In honour of National Stationery Week, which starts today, these giveaways will take place over the course of the week.  In addition to this, I will be active on social media and be sharing lots of other exciting news.  You can find links to the other #NatStatWeek posts and giveaways over here.  So without further ado, let’s jump into the first giveaway.

National Stationery Week 2017

The week we’ve all been waiting for is now upon us (or at least, the week all of us stationery addicts have been waiting for!).  Stationery addicts and users across the country are coming together.  All to celebrate one thing: their love of stationery.

Due to personal reasons, I sadly won’t be able to get involved with the activities this week as much as I would have liked.  Last year, I shared a post daily.  You can find these posts by clicking here.  I planned to do the same until unexpected personal reasons cropped up.  However, I still want to do something.  My first launch giveaway is currently underway, where the winner will get a planner bundle.  This week, I will be holding three additional giveaways and will be updating this post as I go along.  So check back here daily for the update!  Where possible, I will also be around on Twitter – so please drop me a tweet to chat!  For now, let’s jump right in.

National Stationery Week 2017

With less than a month to go, I wanted to talk about something very special to me (and to this blog): National Stationery Week (#NatStatWeek).  On the last week of April, head over to social media to see everyone talking about the campaign.  #NatStatWeek trended on Twitter several times last year.  It’s a good excuse to find any old bits of stationery you haven’t used in a while or take out your favourite products (or even go shopping for more goodies!).

I’m looking forward to it already, it’s something that has never ceased to amaze me.  In 2015, I first came across #NatStatWeek and it inspired me to start this very blog.  In 2016, I beat my own expectations by posting daily during the week.  Every year, there’s a theme for each day of the week – the 7 days of stationery.

#NatStatWeek Seven Days of Stationery

There are some great themes this year.  A few of them were carried over from previous years but there’s a couple of new ones.  I’m particularly fond of  Tuesday’s #GetCrafty as that’s something I’m always saying I’ll do more of.  I never seem to have the time to do all of the craft that I say I’m going to do, however.  Whether you’re a stationery user or an addict, get involved throughout the week.  Not only is it incredibly fun but it’s also provides you with lots of opportunities.  You’ll find some brilliant new items, meet fellow stationery addicts or even win prizes.  A few of my giveaways will be running during that week too.

#NatStatWeek Stationery BloggerWhat else happens in the week?

The Stationery Blogger of the Year – an award decided by you – will be announced during #NatStatWeek.  You can vote for your favourite stationery blogger on the website, once they’ve shortlisted the nominees.  I’m really excited about this award as it’s a good opportunity to find some new bloggers that I may not know about already.  If you’re a stationery blogger yourself, I would recommend you check their website out to find out more about the award.

There is also a London Stationery Show, for companies to source new products or for stationery brands to promote their latest products.  It’s a two day event, with tons of brands.  I’m honoured to announce that I will be attending the event this year, so watch this space as I’m sure I’ll have a lot of blogging to do after the event.  If you are attending, let me know so I can make sure I visit you!

Like most stationery addicts, I will also be active on social media throughout the week, so please come say hi.  My Twitter is the best place to catch me during the week but I’ll also be posting pictures or doing live stories on Instagram.

Pop over to the #NatStatWeek website to find out more.

Will you be doing anything special for National Stationery Week 2017?

Leave a comment and let me know.  I always enjoy talking to fellow stationery addicts.

National Stationery Week 2016

As a Stationery Blogger, there’s nothing really more exciting than this week – National Stationery Week (#NatStatWeek) – and the best part is that this week is finally upon us.   That is 7 days of stationery, each day has its own theme and it’s perfect for anyone to get involved in.  I love how active the hashtag #NatStatWeek gets this week – in particular on Twitter.  It’s a perfect combination of digital and analogue – mixing my favourite thing in each area: Social Media with Stationery.  One is my profession and the other is my passion – it’s a pretty perfect combination for me.

And whilst I say “National” (meaning here in the UK), there is actually something for everyone to celebrate, no matter where you are in the world and that’s World Stationery Day on Wednesday!

To celebrate the week, I’ll be doing a week long series of daily posts – yes that’s right, daily.  Me.  The “one post a week when I feel like it girl”.  Even though I recently decided to relaunch with the aim of doing one post every Saturday, I thought it was only fitting to dedicate a short post every day to talk about these 7 themes of Stationery…

As the week goes on, these will (hopefully) become hyperlinks to posts.  You know, if things go to plan, that is.

On Twitter or Instagram?  Lets be Social Media friends!  I’ll be engaging throughout the week and talking all about Stationery during that time – as well as sharing some great items and goodies I have for you all.
