Papery Peep May 2016

It’s already time for Papery Peep! Where has this month gone?! For this month’s post and going forward, I am opening the linky up to vlogs as well as blogs, as both are rather gorgeous ways of peeping!

Right, before I get sharing, I do want to mention a couple of my posts this month which will definitely appeal to papery peepers. I shared 10 Beautiful Instagram Accounts for Bookworms and 10 Addictive Instagram Accounts for Stationery Lovers. Both are just gorgeous, so don’t miss them!

So onto a peep for this month, and it’s a random collection of snaps from home involving pretty paper.

Snail mail time…

My teeny-tiny notebook collection (these are just the A6 pads I have, you understand)


And my new journal that the team atย Book Block Original were kind enough to design and send me…

Love! I’m thinking I’m going to use it as my next book journal.

My Bring Back Paper Pledge

OK, my reading’s gone out of the window this month. The only book I’ve managed to finish is The Taming of the Queen by Philippa Gregory, which I really enjoyed. It’s actually my first by Gregory, and I am now a convert so I’ll no doubt be reading more. Other than that, I’ve started 3 different books, read my BBC History magazine, a few gardening magazines and A LOT of my Open University course materials. Yes, I have my exam at the end of this week, so this month has really been all about revision.

I have kept up with my journals and I’ve sent a handful of letters out, so papery things are still ticking over.

I am also vlogging every Wednesday for Bring Back Paper, so do pop to my YouTube channelย to subscribe and to catch the uploads so far which include my desk & stationery tour, the fun NYT book tag, my regency romance reads recommendations and I’ll share a papery peep below of some happy mail I received last week.

And now it’s over to you guys. Please feel free to share any papery blogs or vlogs with us here, I just ask that if you blog it you grab my Bring Back Paper badge in the sidebar there. Thanks!

The linky will close at midnight Tuesday 31st May.

What paper have you been enjoying this month?
