Stationery Shopping

My New (Essential) Stationery Loves

You know by now that I have a serious penchant for stationery - like way too serious!  I just loooove it!  The good thing is that I buy stationery, tapes, pens and notebooks, but actually use them.  It brings me great joy to be able to use pretty things to spread the love too - especially through wrapping gifts.

This past weekend we headed to Joburg for a lovely picnic wedding.  The weekend flew by, but I did manage to fit in a visit to my beloved Typo and spoilt myself with these absolute essentials! I mean surely life could not continue without these crucial Eiffel Tower scissors! What I like to do is take a basket and add all the items I love and then I edit the basket before paying by deciding what is really necessary items (read Eiffel Tower scissors).

Some items are gifts, I like sharing!  A few others are to brighten my day.  The clutch pencil is called a Writer's Companion and has cute tasks to do each day for example Monday: Read a Book, Tuesday: Watch a Film.  The stickers are for using on cards and wrapping and the notebook is for meetings.  See...these are all totally necessary daily items!  That's my story and I'm sticking with it!

Have you bought any new stationery, tape or wrapping goodies lately?
