National Stationery Week 2013

22 – 28 April is National Stationery Week in the UK! It seems like every week is a National-something-week at the moment, but this one is right up my street and aims to “Get Britain Writing”. Having just joined Anna’s Post Circle (along with 170 others), I now have another excuse to buy pretty stationery.

Here are my fave finds in the lovely world of stationery….

I also want to recommend some great stationery subscription boxes:

The Green Gables Eco Stationery Club which fellow craft blogger Hannah Ackroyd has reviewed here.

The It’s Paper Dear stationery subscription box by Zie of Darling Dear is a fabulous surprise box of goodies including notebooks, pencils, stickers, journalling cards and more. I love getting this as a treat and reviewed a box on my blog here.

I also want to give another shout out to Vivid Please, one of my favourite Etsy shops for stationery and quirky gifts. You can read my interview with them by clicking the image below.

Lastly, what do you think of my stamp bunting card? I tried hard not to cut into the Queen’s head!

  1. What a splendid card! I got Doctor Who stamps (postage stamps) today and may have got myself a little giddy. A few shared favourites for stationery shops there and a few that are new to me, so thank you! x

  2. YES!! Thanks for (another) excuse to just “pop into Paperchase for a little browse” Claire 🙂 Although I will of course have to balance it with purchasing from some indie stationery stores so I don’t feel like I’m selling out to The (Paper) Man…. Hard life! xxx

  3. Wow, beautiful stationery. And I think it so awesome that you guys have a National Stationery Week. We don’t have that in the states (to my knowledge)… and my birthday is on the 27th. It’s dorky, but I love hearing about things that are celebrated on the same day / week as my birthday.

  4. haha love your bunting! ;D

    Oh Claire, you’ve joined PostCircle too!? Oh I need to get on this don’t I!! JO told me she got someone from Cambridge! Id love someone from Cambridge haha!

    Lovely post! 🙂 xx

  5. I’ve just spent quite a bit of money in Sainsbury’s today – they have some Gorgeous bits and pieces – and washi tape! Woo!!
