I Heart Stationery



* * * Fruit cake alert! * * *

Pretty notebooks, post-its, highlighters, clips, staplers, fancy pens, files, labels. I adore stationery, though I'm not entirely sure why. I can wander through stationery shops for ages or even gaze longingly at the stationery aisle in the supermarket. Quite recently I discovered the tiniest plastic tubs with clip-on lids. I wanted to buy some but couldn't think of anything that would fit in the tub that didn't come with a box of its own.

My favourite stationery item is post-it notes. I have stacks of the things and use any excuse to whip them out. Shopping list? It's on a post-it. To do list - post-it. Notes for writing - post-it. Writing targets? Yep, you've guessed it. Good old post-it.

I'm also going through a bit of a plastic file stage. I have individual ones for my writing projects (one each for books 1-3 and one for short stories), one for newspaper clippings etc and one for very old (and embarrassing) submissions. They each have a sticky label with their purpose on them, of course.

I know from Twitter that I am not the only one who has a bit of a 'thing' for stationery (and it was a bit of a relief to discover I'm not an actual fruit cake).

How about you? Do you have a 'thing' for stationery?
