Today I want to introduce you to Sleepy Bee Studio, share with you the stationery that I have been sent and launch a competition for one of you to win the very same set, so do read on….
I had a lovely phone call a week or so ago with Charlie over at Sleepy Bee Studio, chatting all things stationery. It was fun hearing about her exciting upcoming plans (go follow them so you’ll see them as they are revealed, they are good!) and sharing with her more about the Bring Back Paper series.
I knew that I was going to love sharing all about Sleepy Bee Studio with you just from our happy papery chat, and then I received the Bumblebee Collection Writing Set from her, and just wow. I mean, just look at it, gaze upon it.
Let me share with you a little about the creators behind Sleepy Bee Studio, and then we will talk more about this writing set.
About Sleepy Bee Studio
Charlie is an illustrator and product designer who loves nothing more than creating chaos of the pretty variety in her studio everyday (and dutifully tidying it away every evening as it makes Gav, the tidy one of the two, want to cry). Gav is a graphic designer who does the artwork set-up, manages print production, and the technical side of the products and social media. Charlie comes up with endless ideas for new products, colours, materials, and Gav tells her to calm down and focus on things one step at a time.
The first four stationery themes named ‘Cambridge’, ‘Botanical’, ‘Darwin’, and ‘Stargazer’ were inspired by Charlie’s home-town of Cambridge and its rich historical setting along with the beauty of its gardens & architecture to create something with more of a bespoke touch.
The packaging style has a quintessentially English look to it with the incorporation of hand-poured wax seals & delicate calligraphy. Each product has been lovingly handmade with high quality materials and presented as a beautiful keepsake to cherish.
This writing set has a luxuriously elegant air to it. I feel classy just by owning it!
It arrives wrapped in bumblebee tissue paper and the process of unwrapping it feels like a real treat in itself.
Once unwrapped, you find yourself looking at a faux leather pouch that houses your writing set. In all of my years of owning writing sets, I have never had one come in its own little pouch like this before, and I think it’s a special touch.
The Bumblebee Collection Writing Set includes paper, envelopes and a sleek pen, all that you could possibly need to write your happy mail.
The pen writes beautifully with black ink and the paper is a good quality, thick with the beautiful bumblebee design printed across the top. I then like how the bumblebee and hive design is printed all over the envelopes.
This is a writing set that I can see making a beautiful gift for a stationery addict or an indulgent treat for yourself. And we all need indulgent treats for ourselves from time to time, don’t we?
The only problem that I can foresee with this stationery is not wanting to actually write on it and ‘ruin’ it! If you’re a fellow stationery addict, you will know just what I mean!
Now, if you are looking at this beautiful paper and wondering who you could send a letter to, why not pop a surprise in the post to a friend, or find some pen pals and get writing? You know they will love it.
Now it is your chance to win the Bumblebee Collection Writing Set for yourself. To be in with a chance of winning it, just enter via the rafflecopter below.
This giveaway is open worldwide, to entrants aged 18 and over. It closes at 12am 11th October 2020, terms and conditions apply, see rafflecopter for details. Good luck!
