This week is National Stationery Week, celebrating all things stationery (with an ‘e’) and with the aim of ‘getting Britain writing’. Last year there was a National Stationery Day, which was such a huge success that Chris Leonard-Morgan and his super team of stationery enthusiasts decided to turn it into a whole week – and rightly so! I was lucky enough to win their competition with an amazing prize, which was a £500 stationery hamper 🙂 and as many of you know I’m pretty obsessed with stationery so this was an amazing treat! Chris even came all the way up North to present me with my hamper, which was so kind and it was great to spend the morning chatting about stationery! This is us with Emma (far left) who is assistant manager at Paperchase in Newcastle, and we were grateful to them for letting us take over the shop for a while!
There has been lots of excitement about it in the press this year, and I was really chuffed to see this feature in Crafty Magazine last month!
This year the competition is running again, so why not enter? Find out more by visiting the National Stationery Week website. If you’re looking for things to make and do to celebrate, watch out for more posts here this week!
