This is my first blog post of 2018 and to be honest, my first blog post in far too long.
I have decided to take this part of my website in a slightly different direction from this year onwards.
From February I will be focusing on my creative development, within research and practice. I couldn’t be more excited. I will be using this blog as a place for reflection, somewhere to check in with myself and document the developments within my research and practice. I am hoping it will take a structured format. Like a virtual tutorial, with myself. I am hoping this can therefore be a place I can write freely and more frequently.
With this in mind, I wanted to introduce this with a different kind of post today. Returning to study, regardless to how old you are, means one thing. NEW STATIONERY.
Here are just some of my ‘Space Themed’ ETSY must haves. Think of it as my personal wish list.
I absolutely adore this patch! I have a huge bag which turns into a cave when I am at university. I feel like I am constantly looking in my bag to make sure I have remembered my laptop. Especially with my new one being so much lighter. I would pop this patch on my laptop case (of course also black, clever me) so I can just open my bag to see the glow in the dark moon staring back at me.
Ah of course I was going to include one of my notebooks. These are all designs I would personally buy and use. I am especially looking forward to Bullet Journal inspiration into my notebooks and research. Nothing better than reflecting upon notes which are beautifully presented.
So this is an easy one. I want them all.
I am someone who takes full advantage of washi tape. I use it mostly to secure post-it notes.
This beautiful ring may seem little out of place next to the stationery items on this ‘Round Up’ however I have been toying with the idea owning a moon stone, or some moonstone jewelry for sometime now. Although moonstone, among many other things, is a creativity charm. It is also associated with allowing us to be more receptive to ourselves and encourages balance within. I cant think of anything more beneficial to me as I return to studying.
Selfishly another one of my products. I actually designed this weekly planner with my own needs and space in mind. I do not have the room for an A3 desk planner, as much as I wish I did. This one fits perfectly on my desk next to my computer and in my diary if I need to rip pages out and take them with me.
Confession, I already own this exact pin. It is currently sat on my coat. It was a lovely gift to celebrate finishing my master’s degree with a distinction. It could not be more perfect.
I just think these are the absolute cutest, I especially love the turquoise ones.
As you can see from the vast range of items, I did not limit myself to just stationery goods, but everything and anything which took my fancy and could encourage me to be as organised and creative as possible.
I have linked the all their products above in the description and will link their social media bellow.
I look forward to sharing more about my creative and research practice, I also plan to share progression posts every month. This is now a place for me to ramble, It will not be something I promote massively or share but something those may stumble upon and potentially resonate with.
