What is it about stationery? Although I love the digital age I just cannot leave good old pen and paper alone.

It started when I was a child. Pocket money and present money was spent on notebooks and pens and I loved nothing more than cracking open a new journal. In primary school I loved buying new paper to use in writing letters to my penpals and now I am the teacher I still love buying paper to use for writing to penpals.

My main obsession is collecting notebooks and finding that special job for them. I love collecting pens and trying to find that perfect fountain pen. I sadly adore spending a few hours sitting and organising paperwork into dotty folders. When I am out shopping I always have to check out the stationery shops and when I get the chance to visit a new town or city…well you can guess! However the explosion of amazing online shops and places like Etsy have made it even easier to find some stationery goodies. 

Beautiful bindings are just part of the allure of notebooks.
