Santa and Sales

A combination of being a terrible spendthrift and having amazing family and friends has given me even more lovely stuff to play with in the new year. Not least of this is a massive pile of discarded wrapping paper, which is going to be turned into gift tags, Christmas cards, Filofax Stuff and anything else I can think of. There’s a lot of it, and I think I’m probably still going to be finding uses for it this time next year, after I gain another huge pile. I love some of these ideas.

A Vintage London organiser from Paperchase.


First up is this beauty. It’s an A5 Vintage London organiser from Paperchase. I asked for this from my mum, as they had them on sale when she asked. They then disappeared from the website and I thought I’d missed my chance. Popped into the one in Leeds, though, and they had loads, so I grabbed it and passed it on to her to give back to me. It makes sense, I swear. It’s (as you can see) really pretty, it’s a chunky size with big rings, plenty of pockets, and a week on two pages layout that I really like. It came with a full calendar from July 2014 to December 2015, but obviously at this stage I didn’t need most of the pages.

Shop update! Price drop

Because I am hopelessly behind on NaNoWriMo (about halfway to where I need to be) and need some encouragement, I’m dropping the price on these gorgeous gift sets by £10 each. That means that the biggest box with all its goodies is down to £40, and the littlest one is just £20. Perfect for Christmas gifts for the writer in your life, especially if they’re doing better than I am at reaching the NaNo target! They’re available on my Shopify store at Creativity In The Box, and shipping worldwide.
