Wow, I cannot believe it’s November already I feel like I say this on a daily basis right now but I genuinely cannot believe how quickly this year has gone. There are only two more ‘Sarah’s Stationery Find’s’ blog posts left of 2020 and this is one of them!
Welcome to November’s installment of ‘Sarah’s Stationery Finds’. In this monthly blog series I share with you new stationery products or businesses I have come across in the last month that I love and being a stationery geek I feel the need to share this with other stationery lovers out there - don’t worry if you’re not one yet, there is always time to be converted.
As it’s getting closer to Christmas all of the products featured would make fab Christmas presents for the stationery lover in your life and in fact they don’t have to love stationery, they would make beautiful gifts for anyone. I should also mention that this blog is completely independent, I haven't been sent freebies or paid to talk about these products, I wish that was the case ha ha. If that ever happened I would be completely transparent about it.
Here are November’s ‘Stationery Finds’...
This 3 in 1 planner is cleverly split into three sections - Weekly, To-Do List and Note. It’s the ultimate organisation tool for someone with multiple projects on the go, whether it be business, college or family logistics. You can keep all of those important tasks and dates in one place so nothing falls off your radar. Plus how gorgeous is it? It might even be too good to use, you’d have to get your nicest pen out and best handwriting ready.
Katie Leamon is a creator of luxury stationery, I’m a huge fan of their flat lay notebooks. Now they have a pencil range and I never knew I could be so excited about pencils. They come in a range of colours but I love this assorted box so much so it’s on my Christmas list. There is something really lovely about writing in pencil, especially in a diary or planner when things are likely to change, there is no need for crossed out pen markings with a pencil. You can gently rub it out and write it again keeping the page and your plans looking all neat and tidy. We’ve all been doing a lot of that this year!
We’ve all been there, scrambling around in a Tesco garage at the end of the road to buy a last minute card for someone popping round for a cuppa. Why do we do it to ourselves. Well We are Pretty Post are here to save the day, you can create a ‘pick n mix’ card selection to suit you which will keep you stocked up. How brilliant is that. November is a busy birthday month for me so I bought a pick n mix of 5 cards last week so I’m ready to go I just need some stamps now. The cards are beautiful and really good quality too. Why not get yourself organised and bulk buy your cards so you’re not caught short. Or buy some for that forgetful friend for Christmas so she no longer has an excuse to miss your birthday again.
I’ve been a long time admirer of Daisy Emerson’s artwork on instagram, I don’t really have the space for one of her boards but I love the content she posts on them especially behind the scenes and the process videos. Now she has launched a range of mini prints that are just as gorgeous and even better I can definitely find space for in the house. I’m just deciding on which one to go for, I hope they don’t sell out before I do. I’m torn between Calm and Play. Which one would you go for?
That’s it for November's edition of ‘Sarah’s Stationery Finds’, hopefully it’s given you a little inspiration for your Christmas shopping or a treat for yourself for no reason other than it’s 2020.
If you can this Christmas please do try and shop small and shop locally to sport small businesses. It’s always important but this year more so than ever with the impact Covid-19 is having on shop closures and Christmas market cancellations. Even if you cannot make a purchase, a lovely comment, like and share on their social media pages goes a long way to increasing their visibility and it also gives a little boost to the person behind the brand. On my instagram page I have saved a highlights of lots of lovely small businesses, not only stationery ones if you don't follow me already come over and take a look.
