I think this month we’ll go for a stationery swap as these are always super popular. You seem to love these!
We had our last one in January and there were around seventy to eighty of you that took part, from far and wide. Most participants were from the US, followed by the UK and then we had a few people from Canada, Australia, New Zealand and a few folks from Europe. I love seeing where everyone is from and imagining the happy mail flying about!
The stationery swap is a chance for you to spread some happiness with happy mail as you get to enjoy putting together a parcel full of pretty papery goodies for your swap partner and then you get to unwrap their offerings as a treat for yourself.
It is a nice and simple activity to get involved with. All you need to do is pop a package of stationery bits and bobs together and send them out into the world to your swap partner so that they have received them by the end of April.
You can include whatever you like, from notepaper to jotters to stickers to pens to clips to washi to postcards – it really can be whatever suits you. We’re not talking huge amounts of stuff here, just a pretty little parcel to brighten someone’s day, spending around £5.
I know a lot of people just raid their own, often prolific, stash to do this which is absolutely fine. Get that stationery out in the world!
The swap is open to everyone worldwide, aged 18 and over. If you would like to share details, do post a photo of your stationery bundle with the #BringBackPaper hash tag or pop it in the Bring Back Paper Facebook group and we can all ooh and aah over it with you!
