Simon and I were both at London Book Fair this week, which had a Korean theme – yes, I know! – and I managed to find a stall about Naver, a popular webtoon site now publishing comics as books (I was allowed to take two to try in a lovely tote bag) and, while I was there, was given a lovely biro pen with a paper outer casing. In case you can’t tell, it says “Korea Market Focus 2014 The London Book Fair”. An excellent souvenir from an excellent day. You can hear more from me about the London Book Fair over on http://www.adventureswithwords.com

What’s your stationery pick this week? We’d love to know!

Clearing My Desk: Organiser Giveaway

On Saturday 5th, it was Get Organised Day of National Stationery Week and I used this as my inspiration to get to grips with my desktop and desk drawers. I get rid of a whole bag full of rubbish and paper to be recycled, found room for all the bits and bobs that were cluttering up my desktop and stopping me using it to work at, and now it’s a lovely, tidy useable workspace again. Yay!

When I was investigating the forgotten depths of my desk drawers, amongst the old phones (I found a Nokia 3330 in a Tigger phone case) and old knickknacks (blue sparkly plastic recorder, anyone?), I came across a lovely mini-sized personal organiser. The calendar inside it dates from 2010, with one or two notes scribbled inside but, apart from that, it’s in perfect condition.

Mini Personal Organiser (Paperchase)

I bought this from Paperchase before I had a smart phone and was thinking about getting better organised, keeping track of dates but, in the end, I didn’t use it much as, soon afterwards, I got my first iPhone and never looked back, calendar-wise. To continue the theme of clearing out and life-tidying, I thought one of you lovely people might have a use for it even though I don’t. It’s such a cute design, small enough to fit in a handbag, and, because it’s a standard size, you’ll be able to get new, up-to-date inserts from any stationers.

Just complete the Rafflecopter and you’ll be “in the draw” to win it!
