Bring Back Paper 2015 Challenges
As you know I do like a lovely bit of stationery and I particularly enjoy The Reading Residence‘s #bringbackpaper posts. So when she decided to issue some 2015 challenges, I decided to give them a whirl.
If you want to join in, you can find all of the details here.
As well as returning to blogging, January has been the start of me trying to get organised again after hiding away in my new baby cocoon. Which has meant this beauty has come out to play again.
I love Filofaxes, and I may have erm… quite a few (but that’s probably another post). I also love pens and this Waterman is one of my faves, I also have a purple version, and a different pink version I bought on my honeymoon (yes I do have a bit of habit of collecting styles I like I can’t help it…). I may use my phone for my diary dates, but nothing beats writing down to-do lists and planning in a filofax.
January’s challenge is happy mail. To send one piece of mail in the post to someone that will make them happy. I’m not actually very good at the whole posting thing usually preferring email or texts.
But, January is of course all about thank you letters after Christmas. So with my (3 year old) son having received his very stencil kit from his grandparents we set off to make thank you cards for generous relatives. Sending not one, but eight pieces of happy mail. One is a camel and one if a giraffe – you can totally tell.. right? 😉
January is also my Mum’s birthday, and this year was a biggie. So my 3 year old partner in crime and I also set about creating a card to represent the afternoon tea present we had bought her. However, I was supposed to draw the pictures and my son colour them in, but a certain crazy little dude decided he couldn’t be bothered and that playing with his stickers was much more fun. But, anyway that makes 9 pieces of happy mail in January. All child-led I’m afraid, I’m thinking next time I should try and send some ‘grown-up’ happy mail too.
February’s challenge is stationery swap, so I am currently looking for fellow stationery fans that might be interested in doing a stationery swap with me? I’m happy to post goodies if you are? Either comment here or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org. All swaps will be featured on next month’s #bringbackpaper blog :-).
