Apologies for going quiet for two weeks. My good intentions to write the posts before I left for Dorset were lost as I was swamped by your wonderful orders.
But now it is back to school this week and I know that a lot of you will be relieved to be getting back to routine! Me - I used to like school, one of those freaky children that actually enjoyed being tested, ha ha. But the very best part of going back to school after the holidays was not the new uniform, the anticipation of new teachers, or even seeing my friends (as we had seen them during August anyway!) No, the best part was getting a NEW pencil case and filling it with lovely new pens and pencils, possibly even a protractor. So I have put together a few things that I would like to see on my desk this month and that will keep me motivated to work through the festive madness.
Our favourite woodland chaps adorn each zipped pouch, perfect for pencils etc and priced at just £10, view them here.
And to pop inside, I would love a set of these Viarco silver toned pencils (pack of x12), £10 from Liberty London. Shop here
We cut A LOT of transfers here at Julia Davey HQ. The pairs that we fight over are made by HAY. Not just pretty, these are so very practical and precise. Priced at £25 find them here online.
When I do find inspiration a beautiful pad to draw them on always helps. I am a terror for then ripping out the sketches to manipulate and scan. So it helps if the cover always still looks perfect! This stunning Paloma sketchbook is by Grace & Favour Home and is pried from £13. Find this (and a whole lot of other gorgeous things in this fabric) here.
With 2017 coming to an end sooner than I think I am going to replace my planner with exactly the same one I bought this year. I have found this brilliant - fantastic sectioning and titles throughout. There is enough room for me to write my scribbles without them getting lost on top of each other. The personalised 'Dream It' planner is by Love Give Ink on Not On The High Street, £29. Find it here
Finally, and you know I want to save the best until last! There is the ultimate collaboration this month between the behemoths Anthropologie and Liberty London. A stunning stationery and home collection. I would just love all my orders to be contained on this clip board. A little pricey at £24 but this would egg me on to get them all sorted. Shop the collection here .
