I am really excited to finally be starting the Paper Crush blog! It's been several months in the making and i've spent this time falling in love with some many great designers and crafters work. Along the way i've managed to both discover and acquire some beautiful stationery and cannot wait to share it all with you.

I've had a bit of a paper crush all my life and my favourite time of the year as a child was always spending that one Saturday afternoon in the summer holidays walking around the shops with my mum picking out all my new stationery for the new school year. There were tears and tantrums over never being allowed to buy those smelly gel pens - strawberries have never smelt so sweet! And there were wonderful afternoons spent covering my school-issued grey exercise books in mostly Homebase-sourced wallpaper samples.

As an adult i have more notebooks than notes to write, drawers filled with washi tapes and several penpals who receive hand-written letters in homemade envelopes each month. 
Anyone who knows me will know i'm a bit of a technophobe (ironic i guess that i'm sat here typing out my first blog post on a laptop!) and am always sat scribbling out my to-do lists or organising myself with post-its, index tabs and an array of neon highlighters. 

I hope to be able to inspire you with beautiful paper products, craft ideas and help to reconnect a little bit of our technology-filled world with simple stationery.
If you have any great ideas, websites, blogs or products to share, i'd love to hear from you too :)

Have a great week!
