I’m just going to put it out there… Bloggers love stationery. Specifically, notebooks. I challenge you to try and find a blogger who isn’t even the tiniest bit in love with notebooks of all different shapes and sizes for all different purposes. I definitely fall into that category and whilst I’ve always loved stationery and even in school I always loved to keep my notebooks in perfect condition and whenever something when slightly wrong; my writing wasn’t neat enough or the pen colour didn’t match it made me ever so sad, I think since blogging, I’ve become even more of a notebook addict. I recently wrote about my blogging essentials where I specifically mention that I couldn’t survive without my various notebooks.
I’ve seen bloggers on Twitter taking part in blogger box swaps, snail mail swaps, happy mail swaps and all sort of cute swaps ever since I started blogging really. I’ve had a couple of pen pals but I’ve never done a gift swap before. Until now! Lydia asked if I wanted to do one with her and I loved the idea and joining in with something like this so of course I said yes. Our budget was £5 and we chose ‘stationery’ as our theme. So it was going to be a challenge but that’s half the fun right?
