What is it with stationery?
Why does it suck me in? I just lashed out and bought a packet of GORGEOUS pastel markers yesterday. I just couldn't leave them in the shop. I don't need them, I don't know what I am going to use them for (I am not in any way arty or crafty) but they're so beautiful I just had to have them. They even have pretty names:
Cloud Nine Grey
DELICIOUS!! Hang on, let me take a photo...
See what I mean? Delicious.
Is anyone else addicted to stationery? Do you like pens and paper and folders etc? Do you have stacks of markers in all kinds of colours, pretty crayons and loads of coloured or patterned paper? Do you have boxes or packets full of stickers? Dozens of journals and diaries?
Do you actually use them? Or are you like me, and buy them and hoard them?
How can I encourage myself to actually use all of this stationery in a creative way? Bear in mind that I can barely draw a stick figure, and have all the craft ability of a mollusc.
