National Stationery Week – Hosting #StationerySwaptastic

I can’t believe National Stationery Week is coming to a close today and I have not blogged about Stationery at all, this is not like me, as I am a Stationery Nut. But life has been manic and with trying to make sure all #StationerySwaptastic parcels are being received the opportunity before now has not arose.


You are probably wondering what #StationerySwaptastic is, well if you follow me on Instagram you will know this month I have hosted a Stationery Swap, basically it was simple I paired people up who I thought were of similar styles and they had to send a £5/8 Stationery gift. I can honestly say some of the parcels being received are just gorgeous and way more than the budget but that is the fun of a swap. It is awesome seeing all the lovely photos and how happy people are, I can just imagine all their smiles, my main reason for hosting.

It has also been great to find so many fellow Stationery lovers, 30 people joined up for my 1st little swap and I was over whelmed. I of course am going to be hosting more swaps, my next is going to be a washi round robin so if you are interested do leave your details below so I can add you to the list.

I thought I would share some pictures of a few of the parcels received but do check out the hashtag on Instagram to see more.

I love the Monochrome
