stationery swap


I really do love stationery. After a yarn/craft shop I think my next favourite shop would be an office supplies store. I did scrapbook many moons ago and so amassed a large collection of papers etc., which I still can’t bare to part with although I no longer scrapbook!

As a child, the first day of school was always my favourite with brand new files, boxes of colour pencils and super sharp HB pencils.

And so, it was with enthusiasm that I jumped on board when Viv from Brunch with Viv opened a Stationery Swap via her blog. She set us up with a partner and only 2 rules – the swap must contain at least 5 items, and one of these items had to be a journal or notebook.

My lovely partner was Carla from My Yellow Heart. My goodies arrived late last week and here’s what I received:

Very spoiled, I love it all! And I’m sure it’s going to be put to good use.

Hopefully Carla’s package from me is not far away, the mail in country/remote Western Australia can be a bit unreliable sometimes due to distances. I forgot to take a photo of what I sent, but maybe Carla will be kind enough to take a photo so that I can share here at a later date.

Do you love stationery too?

    Yes I LOVE stationery too:) One of my favourite things to do is all the ordering for the school year-I love looking through all the catalogues and choosing. You got a lovely lot of goodies from your swap partner

      That’s no worries Carla! Glad you loved it, I had a hard time remembering to take a photo before I started using my goodies! Enjoy :-)

      I think I’ll always love it too, now to make sure I actually use some of it so it’s not just sitting pretty on my shelf 😉
