This week is National Stationery Week – a whole week to celebrate all things stationery! Yayy! Being a stationery addict all year round, I wanted to do a special post to mark the occasion. So, I was superrr excited when my lovely friend Rachael got in touch, offering to gift me a selection of her beautiful new notebooks.
Rachael is a UK based Freelancer, Artist and Blogger at www.rachaelhope.co.uk. Rachael designs the most fun, colourful, eye-catching, abstract artwork I have ever seen, just check out her Instagram and see for yourself, it’s bright, bold and beautiful! I’ve always admired Rach’s work and it never fails to add a splash of colour and creativity to my social media feeds. So actually having three gorgeous notebooks to share with you all in National Stationery Week meant that it was the perfect excuse to have a little photo partaay…
There is no better feeling than getting a brand new shiny notebook, knowing it can be anything you want it to be. It could be a life-changing project, inspirational quotes, a collection of random thoughts or maybe just a few doodles of cats in astronaut helmets. The possibilities are absolutely endless.
To celebrate the joy of getting these lovely notebooks (thanks Rach!), I am going to share with you a selection of suggestions on how to use them. I hope this inspires you to grab a pretty pen and cute notebook and start something exciting today… Here are 30 Creative Ways To Use A New Notebook.
