I love stationary.
Bloggers and stationary go hand in hand. Especially book bloggers. I think we’re born with an internal magnet for gorgeous stationery. Notebooks for TBR’s, post-its for noting beautiful passages. I stumbled upon Jemma’s Etsy shop after joining in with a #TheGirlGang chat. Later that week I was trawling twitter and saw Mel had made an order. Checking the bank balance, crossing my fingers I wouldn’t want everything and searching for the Dorkface Etsy shop a short while later I clicked order. This is what I picked.
Let’s get lost
The first thing I clicked was this gorgeous A5 print. Jemma’s artwork is very unique but eye-catching to boot. Cartoonish, girly, cute images all perfectly pastel. However, this print was a little different. T and I constantly have a travel bug biting us and Canada is one of my all-time-wants to visit. The phrase ‘Let’s Get Lost’ and image definitely reverberated with me. I’ve ordered a frame for it (which is yet to appear.) But this is going to sit pride of place on our bookshelf.
Blue Blogging Stickers
My next choice were some of Jemma’s stickers. I don’t have a separate blogging diary so things can get, messy. I picked out a selection of Jemma’s blogging stickers. Blue in colour and covered in helpful phrases. These include phrases like comment on blogs, writing posts and twitter chats. I am forever forgetting when twitter chats are live so these will help stash the times/days in my memory. The stickers are a really lovely quality and I received lots more than I thought. They will last me quite a while and when they do get used up I’m sure to make another order.
Cute Candy Stickers
The final set was a selection of the cute candy stickers. I wanted these to decorate my ideas notebooks. I was really tempted by the bookish set but I’ve started to stray into more travel/lifestyle posts. I’m a book blogger by heart but I couldn’t resist these. Jemma has a really wide selection of sticker sets; from travel adventures to cute doughnuts and milk cartons there’s something for the blogger in everyone. There are also stickers and a notebook covered in the words ‘nasty woman’ which are helping to raise money towards planned parenthood. (Planned Parenthood.org.) They are on my ‘order soon list.’
I would definitely recommend Jemma’s products. There is a wide range of designs/products and they’re all really high quality. I will 100% be using my discount code very soon to order more prints. Jemma also regularly runs twitter giveaways/codes/releases new products. Her twitter is full to the brim with her love of blogging and bloggers, inspiring and promoting happiness, self-love but also how to cope when things take a wobble. I’ll link ya and share the love.
Which small businesses do you support? Oh and have you bought anything from Dorkface yet?
