For various reasons that I won’t bore you with now, I had to take a hiatus from the blog and writing. Today, I’m back with a quick post to share something I love dearly. It is, perhaps, my favourite week in the entire year. Probably even more so than Christmas. Starting tomorrow, you’ll be able to enjoy seven days of stationery. Yes, that’s right, seven whole days. Because tomorrow, National Stationery Week starts. Or NatStatWeek, for short.
If you haven’t heard of it already, NatStatWeek celebrates all things stationery. It’s a whole week dedicated to everything from a blank of piece of paper to ink splatters all over the page. A week that encourages people to write things by hand – because writing matters. It’s a topic I’ve spoken a lot about already so I won’t go into details about that now.
What I did, however, want to share with you was what you should look forward to this year. As usual, there is a daily theme. Each theme is sponsored and supported by a different company. I’m super thrilled to be able to say that I was selected by the team to blog about this fantastic week.
This year’s themes are:
Monday 23rd – Make A Note [#makeanote by NUCO]
Tuesday 24th – Pen and Pencil [#penandpencil by STAEDTLER]
Wednesday 25th – Stationery the World over [#stationerytheworldover by LONDON STATIONERY SHOW]
Thursday 26th – Work Happy [#workhappy by MUSTARD]
Friday 27th – A Place for Everything [#aplaceforeverything by SANTORO]
Saturday 28th – Get Crafty [#getcrafty by CRAFTER’S COMPANION]
Sunday 29th – Signature Saturday [#signaturesaturday by CROSS]
There’s a few days that I’m rather excited for. Well, I’m excited for all of them but perhaps more so for some! Do any of them stand out for you?
Personally, I just can’t wait to follow the hashtags through social media on each day and see what comes up!
For the Love of Stationery…
If you’re a fan of stationery then make sure you get involved. I highly suggest keeping an eye out for discount codes and giveaways too – there’s always some around. Your favourite stationery stores may be getting involved too.
Throughout the week, be sure to watch the main hashtags too. #NatStatWeek and #WritingMatters are the two to keep your eye on.
Let me leave you with this, the aims of National Stationery Week – as quoted directly from their website:
To get stationery lovers talking about and sharing details of their stationery and what they use it for, plus the products, brands and retailers they like and can recommend
To promote the importance of hand writing and encourage people to keep writing
And to get more people spelling stationery with an “E”!
That last one is definitely my favourite. Remember, it’s “E” for Envelope!
That’s all from me for today. I’ll see you tomorrow. Follow me on Twitter or Instagram to what I get up to! I took a hiatus from those two, as well but I’ll be back tomorrow with things to share there too.
