I have heard the term ‘December Daily’ being floated around the Internet for some years now but I have never really gotten involved in it. This year, I thought I would change that. I started out by figuring out exactly what it is and doing some research into what others have done in previous years. If you want to lose many many hours staring at beautiful pictures or watching videos, just search for the term on Pinterest, Instagram or YouTube. This project is a mix of journalling and scrapbooking. You can focus on either option or do a mix of both, as you see fit.
One of my favourite weeks in the year is National Stationery Week. It’s a great week to find likeminded people, passionate about stationery. This week tends to fall towards the end of April. Since National Stationery Week 2020 is actually their tenth year anniversary, the team are going big. They have already lined up a huge range of sponsors. I am really looking forward to seeing how it goes. However, I wanted to share this with you today for a few reasons. First, I wanted to share all of the brilliant sponsors they have. And second, the National Stationery Week team launched their #12DaysOfStationery today. This is twelve days of giveaways, for stationery lovers everywhere.
Every single quarter, Field Notes release limited edition pocket notebooks. Their annual subscription fills you with plenty of notebooks to get writing, wherever you are. I love their notebooks – and I’ve raved about a few of the different editions every so often here. But as it’s almost the end of 2019, I took a moment to look back at the last year’s release and it hit me how apt each and every one was. For perhaps the first time, the Field Notes limited editions all symbolise something related to the season they were released in for me. I am keen to see where they go from this.
For any event or holiday, planning in advance can make things a bit easier and less stressful. Christmas is no exception to the rule. It’s a very widely celebrated holiday that does take up quite a bit of time, effort and money. Planning – and budgeting properly – can make a huge difference to your mental wellbeing throughout the month and afterwards. Everyone’s Christmas Planner will look different, based on what you do and how you celebrate the holiday but I wanted to share mine in the hopes that it might give you some ideas. I have also included a free downloadable template that I used in my planner, in case you wanted to do the same.
Every year, the Royal Mail bring out the new Christmas stamps. They alternative between a religious themed set and a secular set. 2019’s Christmas stamps take a religious approach, bringing the nativity story alive. I quite like the style of this year’s collection. There are eight different stamps in the collection. It is very colourful, featuring beautiful paper-cut art and illustrations. You may have already seen these around but I wanted to share them with you, in case you hadn’t.
