    MD Paper A5 Notebook Review

    For a long time, the Leuchtturm1917 was my favourite A5 notebook. I even wrote a blog post about how it was the best A5 notebook you could buy. Well, it turns out there is a new contender and it might be even better than the Leuchtturm. This is quite surprising for a number of reasons. The main one being that I didn’t like the MD Paper notebook when I first saw it. I guess I should explain this story a little more. I was browsing a few stationery shops online when I came across the MD Paper notebook. At the time I was looking for a new notebook and thought…

    Papergang Unboxing | December & January

    Today I have two Papergang boxes to share. I’m getting a little behind when with my Papergang posts so I thought I would merge two boxes together.

    HeyTibbs | Papergang Subscription Box

    Today I want to share a slightly different kind of stationery subscription. A little while ago I came across Stickii Club.

    March & April | Papergang Stationery Box

    Today I want to share two Papergang boxes from earlier on in the year. For various reasons I never actually got around to sharing these at the time. Papergang is a stationery subscription box run by Ohh Deer. Every month they get a different illustrator to create artwork and apply that to various paper items. In the past, I’ve mentioned how Papergang can be quite hit or miss with the quality of the box. These two particular boxes show that very well. One was an experiment which didn’t go over well. The other was a particularly good box which I really liked. THE TUBE EXPERIMENT In March of 2018, Papergang…
