As today is National Stationery Day, I thought I'd share some of my favourite pieces of stationery with you. It has been quite hard to choose just a few items to share! Websites such as thepaperie.co.uk and papermash.co.uk sell a lovely range of stationery, and are well worth having a browse. Etsy is also good for finding unique pieces, such as notecards, and many sellers will also personalise pieces, such as invitations. I design and sell a range of stationery myself, which you can view and buy here.

This beautiful feather and fern print above is from The Wild Unknown .
This is an illustration for The Secret Garden, from fellow Middlesex University illustrator Emma Block, who has many lovely pieces for sale in her Etsy shop.
This screenprinted canvas bag, with illustrations of food from each state is from melangerienyc on Etsy. I love this idea, and I love the combination of hand rendered type and illustrations.
This 'Make Your Own Garland' kit, featuring illustrated birds from Kaye Blegvad is a lovely idea, and suitable for any age.
I love the idea of giving out and collecting recipes, and these beautiful letterpressed recipe cards from Brown Parcel Press on Etsy are perfect for doing so.
I've loved a lot of the items from Lush Designs for a while, and I especially love the details of the beetroot on this apron.

I am one of those illustrators, and here's a sneak peek at the tote I've created. It has beeen hand drawn in permanent marker, which was a little scary to do, but I'm so pleased with how it came out.

This week I've been creating new things for my shop re-launch on Monday 3rd October. Above are some little snippets of a 2012 desk calendar I've been designing, based on seasonal fruits and vegetables.

I'm busy creating lots of lovely new things for my online shop, which I will relaunch on Monday 3rd October 2011.
Some of the things I will be selling are: illustrated brooches, wrapping paper and tags, cards, small prints, cosmetic cases, pocket mirrors, and a few other things I am currently working on!
In the meantime, my friend has started her own business, recycling vintage crockery finds into lovely cake stands and gifts, at the moment, she has set up a Facebook page for you to register your interest, but they will be available to buy very soon! Click here for 'Pretty Useful'.
