How cool is this bookmark! I love it.
So what I didn’t realise when I ordered it was that they were on holiday until 7th Jan (seems odd to me for people in the diary business to close for such a long time over christmas, but what do I know…) so it only arrived a few days ago, and of course I wasn’t home so had to get it from the post office yesterday…
I have booked onto this – so excited!
Nancy Straughan is running an afternoon workshop on using lino to personalise stationery at Smug in Islington, London.
You will learn how to carve and print lino stamps to create lots of personalised stationery and other paper products. You will be taught how to design a perfect stamp to print with and you will be able to create personalised greetings cards, envelopes and tags, or even a print to hang on your wall. You will be able to take your stamps home the end of the class to use on lots more projects. Everything you will need is provided but feel free to bring along any extra paper items you would like to print on. They will also be an opportunity to make a valentines gift.

My boyfriend bought me a really nice little notepad for Christmas – he knows stationery is the way to my heart! (He also bought me Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats which was a TOTAL dream come true and I have wanted for years, but that’s a different story!!!).
As you can see it’s a reporter style flip notepad, secured with a fabric elastic band. When you open up, it’s a ring-bound, grid pad.
I LOVE GRID LINES! I don’t know why as I hate maths, but they do seem to be an obsession of mine. I think it comes from when I had a a grid note pad at uni and used to spend lectures doodling in the squares. Anyway, since then, I never went back!
Here’s prime example of me using grid lines; this morning I have been drawing a pattern to knit in baby hat:
