Hello friends! If you know me in person, you might notice that I love my stationary.
There's just something so exciting about purchasing a new notebook or some new stamps or...I don't know, anything craft related! I think having notebooks available sparks my creativity and gets me excited to write blog posts and to design logos and...to just craft. I love doing these little projects. I find that they help soothe my anxiety and help me feel accomplished, overall.
So for today's blog post, I figured I'd walk you folks through my notebooks (as well as some other most-used items) and share why I find them valuable in my life.
I get it, they're both just standard notebooks on the outside. But on the inside, they're both unique. One of them holds my blog and vlog plans, and the other contains goals, savings plans, and even emotional journal entries that I've spontaneously decided to add into it. I bought the floral one with no true plan at all, and that's why it's filled with all of the random stuff. I've mentioned the white, marbled blogging journal a lot lately, but it is part of this stationary collection, so you get to see it once again!
I bought these cards from Modcloth around Christmas time since they were on sale, but since they aren't themed with a specific holiday, I've been using some for Christmas, birthdays, Mother's Day, and Father's Day. They're just simple and beautiful.
Tape and Stickers
I got this lovely, metallic tape from Hobby Lobby. Maybe it was an impulse buy, but I mean...it was too pretty to pass up! I know, I know. And the sticker book is one I also ordered from Modcloth. Just look how trendy those designs are. I like using the tape and stickers to dress up school supplies so I'm more excited to use them, if that makes any sense at all.
Yes, one just expired so I recently bought another one. I think it's super important to get your plans physically written down. I find that it helps me remember when I use a pencil and paper, but when I'm rushing I tend to just use my phone calendar. But even then, I head home and transfer those plans into my agenda so I can remember a bit better. Depending on what bag I take to work, I can carry my planner with me to write down when my next shifts will be.
Notepads and Writing Utensils
So these note pads are a bit different. The one on top is one that I tend to carry with me in case I need to write anything down if I don't have my planner. Anything at all. And the one underneath is one that stays on my dresser. I tend to use it for daily tasks or shopping lists. I bought both of these notebooks from Marshalls. And the pens and pencils are from Target. Aren't they precious?
My Design Notebook
So I purchased this notebook from Forever 21's website since it was super cheap and really cute. Look at the sushi ingredient dudes! Anyways, when I opened it I realized it didn't have any lines in it, so I began using it for fun stamp therapy, organizing color schemes, and even drafting some logos for this blog (which I wont reveal yet!). Side note: that bird (in the dress) stamp was carved by miss Angie. She gave me some stamps a while back and I think that one is precious.
Thank you guys so much for reading! What sorts of stationary do you keep with you?
