Yup, I managed to wheedle my way into yet another stationery swap ;-P This one was organised by the delightful Jocelyn, over at The Reading Residence , who hosts a papery themed swap every month as part of her #BringBackPaper campaign. Yep, she encourages us to play with paper, every month. She’s an awffy nice lady, is that Jocelyn ;-P Technically, this month was supposed to be something different (possibly something to do with Smash* books?) but as the previous stationery round in February was so well loved that she decided to repeat it. (I definitely enjoyed it! So much so, I participated twice 😀 )
Jocelyn makes it super easy to sign up for her swaps; you just pop her an email with your name, address & whether you are willing to post internationally; and she pairs you up with a fellow
paper nerd swapper. The ‘rules’ for what to include seem pretty free and easy in these swaps (possibly so it remains fun!), so the gist of this one was “It’s really simple, package up a little bundle of stationery papery goodness for your partner and ensure that you get it sent by the end of July to them. Perhaps a few items from your own supplies, or if you’re running low, nip out and choose a few goodies. I’d suggest around £5’s worth in total.” Pretty straight forward, huh? You can of course read more about this particular swap here.
I soon set to work putting together a little bundle for my
I tried to include a good mix of items, so hopefully Hannah (my victim) finds some things she likes, and maybe even one or two she loves.
Anyway, I packaged them all up and headed off to the postoffice. Imagine my delight when I got home to discover the Postie had already been and Hannah had already sent hers!
I received a fantastic parcel of goodies in return….
Did you notice the lovely tapes (you know about me & tapes, right?) And can you believe how cute those sticky notes are?
Hannah also included a lovely stripy pencil, eraser and the cutest pen.
Yep, another successful swap!!
If you are tempted, there’s still time to squeeze in on this swap, so long as you can send off before the end of the month. Go on! You know you want to..
Because everyone likes to share, the #BringBackPaper hash tag is used on Instagram or Twitter and Jocelyn also runs a monthly ‘Papery Peep’ linky on the last Wednesday of every month.
Have you received any exciting papery mail recently? Please share in the comments 😀
As always, thanks for popping by! x
