Ultimate Stationery Giveaway – #ShopStationery – 12th April to 18th April 2021

The past year has been a difficult one for everyone, without a doubt. I for one have lost far too many loved ones and attended too many virtual funerals. As such, blogging kind of took a backseat as my mental health quickly suffered. However, I know I have missed it and there have been a lot of things that I wanted to share with everyone over the coming weeks. However, without further ado, I wanted to kick things off with the Ultimate Stationery Giveaway! For your chance to win over £1,500 worth of stationery goodies, continue to read this post and get involved. It is super easy to do so!

The Ultimate Stationery Giveaway:

Retailers have suffered heavy losses during these closures. Even when open, they have not necessarily made enough money to recuperate their losses. With this in mind, a new campaign has been created called #ShopStationery to encourage people to go outside, get some fresh air and replenish their stationery supplies! For a chance to win, all you have to do is:

  1. Visit your favourite local stationery store between 12th April – 18th April 2021
  2. Take a picture of yourself shopping for stationery
  3. Use #ShopStationery + tag National Stationery Week
  4. Share this photo on social media!

As if stationery lovers really needed a reason to buy more supplies, right?! But if you did, this is a perfect one! I do recommend that you continue to stay safe, however, by washing your hands regularly, wearing face masks and maintaining a social distance whilst out and about.

Send lots of love, smiles and joy in honour of Thinking of You Week 2020

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!

Lockdown Hiatus and some updates in the World of Stationery

2020 has been quite a rough year for a lot of people, no doubt. Of course, I’m no exception to that. With everything happening, a lot changed in my life in the past six months. Whilst there has been quite a lot of negative in that, there were also a few positives. They do not diminish the negatives, of course. But focusing on the positives is helping me to personally cope with these trying times. It’s been mentioned to me regularly but my blog is most definitely one of the things I love and have missed over the months without. Whilst I am technically not in lockdown anymore, I do pretty much stay at home now. So, in an effort to deal with these semi-lockdown blues, I am going to focus on the things I enjoy. For now, let’s talk about some stationery updates from the lockdown.

Stationery Updates

In an attempt to catch up with some missed things, here’s some updates in the Stationery World that have happened during my hiatus. Continue reading “Lockdown Hiatus and some updates in the World of Stationery”

#SendALetterDay – Writing Letters is Self-Care

#SendALetterDaySadly, 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.
