These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things

Maggie Holmes and Amy Tangerine Scrapbook Paper.

I love the craft/book section in TK Maxx. They always have notebooks and stationary you can't get anywhere else. I picked up a couple of 12x12 scrapbook paper pads and I'm already dreaming up things I can make with them.

Steal Like An Artist, Austin Kleon.

10 things nobody told you about being creative. This one was a present and something I've wanted to read for a while so I'm excited to start it. The chapters that stand out at a glance: Don't Wait Until You Know Who You Are to Get Started. Side Projects and Hobbies Are Important. The Secret: Do Good Work and Share It With People. And Be Nice (the world is a small town).

Washi Tape.

You can never have too much or at least I can't anyway. This washi tape was another present. It's from Tiger. We don't have a Tiger store anywhere near us but I did get to visit one when we were in Brighton earlier in the year and loved it. They've got so much good stuff and it's all really cheap. You can get a Diy Stamp Kit including 3 ink pads as well as 2 blocks of rubber and a carving tool for £5. £5 people! It's well worth a trip if you have one nearby.

Paperchase Christmas Cards.

Every year Paperchase do a bumper pack of 40 Christmas cards for £6. I love that you get a random mix of cards in each box. I spent longer than I probably care to admit picking a box. I know it's only October but it's not too early to be thinking about Christmas is it? There's only 10 weeks to go after all.

Derwent Watercolour Pencils.

I was given these double-ended watercolour pencils as a present and have been experimenting with them over the weekend and I love them. They seem to have mixed reviews on Amazon but I haven't had any problems with the lead cracking on mine so far and I love the bright colours.

Secret Garden Colouring Book, Johanna Basford.

These colouring books for adults have been popping up everywhere. I bought this as a birthday present for a friend and I not so secretly want one for myself. Gorgeous.
