It's no secret that I love stationery. Ever since I was a little girl. It must be in the blood, as both my Mum and my Dad love stationery. We used to live in a very rural area, so every Saturday morning, my Grandpa, Dad and I would go into town. They would often go to the pub for a drink and I would go rollerskating, but before that, we would go to the newsagency (paper store) and I would spend, what felt like hours, gazing at all the cute erasers and pens and swap cards (we are talking 1970's here folks, so they are now called trading cards). I would usually end up leaving with some new swap cards or an eraser and a small packet of lollies. And that's how it all began.
Ever since then, I've not been able to resist buying a pen here, a notebook there. Many of you know that I have an excessive amount of notebooks. I just love buying stationery! Recently, the addiction to stationery has become full swing. A friend and I started the Stationery Enablers group on Facebook and we will often text each other links back and forth over the course of an evening of the various stationery items we have found on the internet. Having a casual position in a stationery store is also fuel for my addiction too. And I love every minute of it. Knowing that there's so many others out there who share a love of stationery is loads of fun too! I used to think that it was just me who would pick up a new notebook and smell it's pages, or delight in the fact that adhesive tape now came in a range of gorgeous colours and patterns, or that the new range of pens at the store was just too good to be true and I would simply just have to buy a set. Don't even get me started on Kawaii stationery! So, I'm proud to admit that I have a full blown stationery addiction.
Before I leave you tonight, I might just add that something rather exciting will be happening very soon! Early in the new year in fact! I know you guys are going to love it and I'm finding it very hard to keep it a secret for very much longer, but you will just have to wait. At least for another few weeks, which isn't that long, really... I think I might just explode with excitement in the meantime!
