In the spirit of Halloween, I thought it was an opportune time to get involved in a fun little Halloween tag – also known as the Hallotober Tag! I was tagged in this by Sabina over at RoseGold Reports, who is a relatively new blogger and I’m so pleased to see new bloggers surface into the community. This a new tag – perfect for this time of year, of course – so I am excited to see how far it goes!
For the past two weeks now, I have been taking part in an incredible event that I just had to shout out about. In honour of their 7th birthday, Design Cuts have opted to host an online event called Design Cuts Live 2020. Whilst it is not a stationery event, it does involve a lot of art and design – and I strongly believe that these things can help improve mental health. At least, for me, it’s been a lot of self-care and really helped me to relax in the stressful times. Best news: Most of this is completely free!
Thinking of You Week is not a new concept or national holiday. However, this year, it feels much more important than perhaps it did before. Given the current times, there are so many people stuck at home, without loved ones. With another lockdown ahead of us, it’s become even more of an issue. The week itself starts now – on 21st September to 27th September. It focuses on reaching out to loved ones through my favourite medium: physical post. Send a card to someone this week! If you need a card, keep reading for a free PDF of one you can print out!
Sadly, it’s the last day of National Stationery Week today. However, I have an amazing guest post today from a dear friend of mine. I have often spoken about writing letters and the benefits to me, or reasons to write. However, For #SendALetterDay, Laura talks about how writing letters is a form of self-care for her. I absolutely adore this post and honestly, think it needs no introduction. All I can say is that if self-isolation is getting to you and you’re feeling particularly lonely in these trying times, read this post and hopefully be inspired to connect to people through the art of letter writing.
Find out more about the #SendALetterDay campaign by searching the hashtag on social media. However, without further ado, let’s hear from Laura and why writing letters is important to her.
With the #PencilDay theme, it was only fitting that I spoke about some incredible pencils that I adore: the Sprout pencils. These “Plant Your Pencil” pencils can be planted and grown into a variety of different herbs, flowers or vegetables. A few of the sets actually also come with beautifully engraved quotes too. They also can be engraved by a logo or name, if your company is looking for sustainable pencils!
