Outgoing [January]

This month I was able to use a mix of English and Japanese stationery. I didn't actually pick up much while I was in the UK. But the few things I bought or picked up were put to good use. Needless to say I have picked up loads of new stationery bit since coming so there has been a nice mix of Japanese and English. So happy with my ink stamps and bakers twine which have been in valuable. A few letters went out to friends and family thanking them for the Christmas times and presents.

Incoming [January]

It's always lovely to come home to a full mail box after being away. I also got the last of my Christmas mail so there was a little bit Christmas left in January. I got a lot more postcards this month probably due all the Christmas postcards that I had sent out. Additionally there were a few letters form people I hadn't heard from in a long while so it's nice to start the year replying to some of those.

Stationery Stash #3 [Etsy Finds]

Yesterday for the first time ever I was home when Mr. Postman came a knocking. Not only that but I was at home an in a decent state of dress i.e. hair combed and wearing a bra (^_^). More importantly he was here with a package I thought would take much longer to arrive! So a good start to a day off.

I spied these stickers, labels and mini postcards online almost 2 weeks ago on Etsy. I thought they would be perfect for my Traveler's Notebook and a few certain pen pals. I can't wait to start using these in my TN I'm not that good at drawing so these will help to liven up my pages.

I am made my first Etsy purchase in ages from MULK and indulged in some gorgeous geometric writing paper. I loved the colour schemes. The paper is of good quality too as are the envelopes. The set also includes 8 seals in the same patterns and colours.

The 4 designs are great and I have 8 envelopes. My only complaint is that there are 12 sheets for 8 envelopes. But to be fair I would have settle for 6 allowing for 2 sheets per envelope. But I'm pretty sure some of my mail will be limited to one page so it all works out in the end. Delivery was really quick and for me it was great to buy from a UK based shop.
