Stationery

My love of stationery started when I was a young girl. I remember getting pens and “keeping them for best”. I have so many that when I looked recently I realised some of them are from my school years, nearly 40 years ago! Here I will be telling you about all the wonderful stationery I buy, what I might use it for, or just keep for best still.

June Art Challenge
So this month I have once again set myself up to do some more art challenges, honestly what am I like, it's not as if I don't have enough to do but I just have to add myself to some more too! WorkshopWeek2021 – Art classes hosted by Becca of …
Wanderlust Week 22 Shawn Petite – Finding your inspiration and story
For today's post I am going to go through an art class I have just taken as part of Wanderlust 2021.  The tutor is Shawn Petite, based in the US, she is a longstanding teacher and creator and is a wonderful mixed media artist.  The class is in the “poems” …
I made another journal!
Sorry Not Sorry… But I've made another journal, filmed a flipthrough and popped it onto YouTube. This time the inspiration for the journal came from Instagram /YouTube artist Francine of JunkJournalJoy. She showcased an Alice in Wonderland journal that I just fell in love with. The digital pack is designed …
Another Chunky Journal Flip-through
I have another YouTube video out in the wild!! OMG what's going on with me huh! This second video is another journal, it's probably has twice the pages of the last one, and so the video is a bit longer. It took me quite a long time to put the …
Notebook Review
For my April 2021 art challenge I chose to test three A5 dot grid notebooks I had previously purchased because they looked amazing and would look fabulous on my shelf. Obviously there comes a time when being on a shelf not being used is just a bit silly, especially when …
Day 30, I did it!
The Blog-along – a summary So April has been an interesting month! I participated in Effy's blog along where we had to blog every day for 30 days, the commitment to the challenge was to read and comment on 3 other blogs. I have really enjoyed the commitment to writing …
Day 29, The Penultimate Day!
Today has been a pretty good if an easily distracted day. I spent a reasonable amount of time making a journal pages from the Lollipopclub Subscription boxes. I had no need to be doing this, I'm just making them, but it's arting and I enjoyed myself! I'm afraid I don't …
Day 28, Fairy and Superhero
Its late, I'm watching TV with hubby and I realise that I have almost missed the day's blog! Oh No, I cant miss it this late in the month, so I think this will be a quick jotting today – Sorry! Today's art journal page is a quick drawing in …
Day 27, Art Play, Seaside and Menopause
Today I have had a good day at the art table. I feel like being creative every day really is starting to pay off and I am becoming more able to take an idea and run with it in my own way. Art piece number 1 was from a freebie …
Day 26, Monday List day
I started the day off by making a list of all the things I NEED to achieve today, over and above all the things I normally do on a daily basis. I achieved about 50% of it then decided it was time to Art 🙂 Today's art journal page has …
Day 25, Sunday Art Day!
We had to get up early today, our daughter made plans to go out and see friends, and that meant we all got up for early breakfast, the plan was to have a decent walk, and enjoy the day. But for some reason, we both felt a bit Meh, so …
Day 22 Time to Escape
I really am amazed that I have managed to keep this going for 22 days. Its a big ask every day to read and comment on other blogs and to then also write my own, and to have something interesting to say. I do wonder what will happen at the …
Day 21, Lollipop
It's the tail end of day 21, and I have been very much "offline" today. I read and commented on some blogs this morning, but I have been away from all things social media today – very unlike me! My Notebook challenge today, was done in my Scribble & Dot …
Day 20 – Its an Art and Shopping kind of day
Today I decided to go supermarket shopping, and thanks to Cheryl post yesterday I decided to go to one of the out of town stores, and it just so happened to be right beside The Range. I have missed the arts and crafts stores, so I was at Sainsbury's for …
Day 19, Digital Art & Haircut 🙂
So I keep thinking about getting involved in digital art, its easy isn't it, you just draw shapes on a screen and hey presto there is an image!. Well..that's what I thought, but the reality is a bit different. I bought Affinity Designer for the windows laptop. I don't have …
Day 18, Sunny Sunday
Its been lovely here today in the East of England. Hubby and I went out for a nice walk we completed another 5.5 miles for our monthly target. It was warm and sunny with a gentle April breeze. We saw some deer, a heron and a baby duckling that was …
Day 17, Chips on the Pier
Day 17 already! I am pretty amazed that I am still here to be honest, this is not my normal sort of challenge and it's most definitely out of my comfort zone, I really did think I would have failed by now. But I've found I am enjoying it and …
Day 15 – Sleep deprived crazy
Today started well, despite a rubbish nights sleep (no idea what was wrong but don't you just love the peri-menopausal leg twitch and wide awake-ness when you just want to be asleep!) Anyway despite not being awake, I managed to tease the daughter enough to get a FacePalm and eyeroll …
Day 13, Tech Day
Its been a bit of a tech day today! We have some concerns over the way the page is broadcasting to email and social media, so this has meant we have spent a lot of time trying to understand what WordPress and our Website Host configure for each other and …
Day 10, #100dayproject completed!
Day 10, and I am so happy to say that without really trying I have actually completed a 100 day project. I didn't follow a particular theme or thread, just "I will do something every day for 100 days, and hopefully will post it to Instagram" so what did I …
