Today is a super special day for me. I am currently standing in the London Stationery Show. It’s an amazing event that takes place annually. The show itself is organised by a fantastic team of stationery geeks, so it’s always a great day for a stationery blogger such as myself. Unfortunately, it’s a trade show – which means it’s not open to the general public. I’m honoured to be able to say that I was selected by the team to cover this fantastic event.
But fear not, there’s a way for everyone to get involved in today’s National Stationery Week theme! Jump online and check out #StationeryTheWorldOver on social media. Share pictures of stationery stores all over the world.
I’ll be sharing some thoughts from the London Stationery Show next week so watch out for that if you’re interested. However, today, I wanted to quickly share some fantastic products that I received from the team that organised this event. These products were generously sent by the sponsors of National Stationery Week. I’m incredibly humbled by the fact that I was one of the chosen bloggers to receive this bundle and wanted to share what was in it with you.
The National Stationery Week Bundle
The bundle contains:
- An A5 journal from Nuco’s Spectrum range
- A couple of Staedtler’s pigment liners
- A T-Rex style highlighter from Mustard
- An A4 storage folder from Santoro
- A clipboard planner and pen from Santoro
- A pencil case from Santoro
- One of the Spectrum Noir metallic markers from Crafter’s Companion
- A ballpoint pen and pouch from Cross
- And it all came in a box from G.F. Smith, who included the colour of the year envelope and information.
I can’t wait to use all of these products in more depth. Throughout the week, I’ll drop pictures of them in use once I get around to testing them. I have already started using a few products, however, which I’m super excited about. Those metallic markers, for example, jumped out at me. Although my lettering is not the best, I felt compelled to try them out. As a result, I ended up creating the ‘National Stationery Week’ sign above. The colours are so beautiful in real life. The camera fails to capture it’s beauty, in my opinion. I love Crafter’s Companion and have a number of their products. However, I haven’t had the chance to try out some of their newer ones so receiving this really made my day. There’s a few other products that I really want to try out!
Once I get a chance, I’ll test out all of the products and share my favourites with you. If there’s anything you would like to see in more depth, let me know and I’ll whip up a review for you.
Until next time, why don’t you check out my Twitter or Instagram page? I’ll be sharing pictures and thoughts on there throughout the day – and the rest of the week – from the show and the week itself.
