Stationery Love!

Another topic from My Facts post and definitely something I’ve been obsessed with for years, stationery!

I think, for as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with stickers, pens, and paper. Even as a child, I wanted them in every color, size, and type, and multiple copies so I could collect one copy and use the rest. I wanted to look at them and touch them and admire them and feel them. I don’t know what it is; maybe I enjoy the color combinations of the ink on the paper, maybe I like the creativity that the stickers provide, maybe I’m just a weirdo. We’ll never know for sure (but I do coo over the colors of pens and paper, and the adorability of stickers…).

Before I realized my obsession, I used to want notebooks for the sole reason of owning them. It didn’t matter how many plain Mead notebooks I already had, I didn’t have that one in that color. Thankfully, my mom didn’t indulge me on my every whim, but as soon as I got an allowance, the first thing I bought, after a quick 7-Eleven trip, was some cute stationery from a Korean store called Morning Glory. I had some of friends who were also into it, so we bonded quickly over brands like Blue Bear, Babu, and White. I still think the best, and cutest, one is Blue Bear. Another thing I bought as a kid was a Blue Bear planner, and filled it with cute month/week spreads, and even cuter memo paper.

Nowadays, I’ve moved on to stores like Maido and brands like Strathmore, but I’m still a huge fan of all stationery, especially cheap (but cute) stationery, so stores like Daiso are the epitome for an addict like me. I am also really into bookbinding and other DIY notebooks! I can’t wait to share my future projects and notebooks with you!

That’s all I can think of right now! I hope this provided a little insight into who I am and what I like to talk about!
