Stationery-or feeding my addiction!

It's my turn to blog over at Sarah Hurley365 today and I need to get something off my chest!

I'm a stationery-holic. There I said it! I love stationery sets, can't get enough of them and am a huge fan of snail mail. I write a lot of letters and belong to a group called Postcircle dedicated to writing just because! It was started by Anna aka Miss_Beatrix and once you sign up, you get assigned to a group of five or six other people and off you go! I'm a member of two groups, Rabbit and Stoat and really enjoy it. It's a great community too, both on Instagram and Twitter.

We all know how nice it is to get a letter on the mat that isn't a bill, especially if the envelope looks all pretty!  Well I was about to start a letter to a friend who likes sewing but couldn't find any sewing themed paper in my stash.

Then it occurred to me that I could make my own! Me and Craft Artist don't get on so I tend to avoid digital crafting and print/cut things out instead.But- I bit the bullet and gave it a go.

I used Sarah's All Sewn Up digikit and printed out some sheets of paper in various sizes and a couple of envelopes and I have to say that me and Craft Artist seemed to get along quite well together for once!

This has opened up a whole new world to me and I'm looking forward to a) doing some more digi-crafting with Sarah's kits and b) making tons more stationery!

I urge everyone to pick up a pen and write some letters - just because! And if you enjoy it and want to get involved, follow the link to Miss_Beatrix and sign up!
