Bring Back Paper: Read, Write Create.

28 Jan

Well I thought I would join in once again with Jocelyn at The Reading Residence Bring Back Paper challenges.

New for 2015 Jocelyn has introduced Read, Write, Create for 2015.


The idea is to Read, Write and Create each month then on the last Wednesday of the month link up with Jocelyn at The Reading Residence with your blog post of what you have been up too.

So let’s begin …

I’ve actually not purchased any new penpal stationary for a while as I am trying to use up my stock pile before I invest in anything new.
So I’ve been trying to be inventive with what I have.
Joining – sticking – cutting – doodling.

As I write this Im remembering the couldn’t be refused Washi tape I purchased at the beginning of the month.


So correction I’ve only made a little purchase.

January’s activity was to send some happy mail & as a letter writer an additional piece of happy mail you would not normally send- I’ve written a post earlier in the month about this activity as I am participating in ‘Pay it Forward’ this year.


However I was moved by Jocelyn’s post featuring the Charity Postpals and although I haven’t put pen to paper yet I fully intend to in the next few weeks.
Postpals charity enables letter writers to “Post a Smile on a Sick Child’s Face’ by the sending of cards, letters, emails and little gifts to seriously ill children and their siblings”. Letter writer or not why not take a look at their website you may want to take part.

Read, Write, Create

Read: Well I haven’t done much book reading at all of late but I have had a lovely letter from my #postcircle #goose pal in New Zealand.
Which I read over a cup of tea and cheered up a dreary day.


Write: I’ve been catching up on a long over due letter this month as well as my usual catch up snail mail.


Create: I’ve been trying to be creative with my stationary supplies of late in an attempt to use some up before I replenish stocks.


I’ve also been creative with my Filofax this month; making my own planner pages as well as decorating my diary pages.


That’s my papery month!

You can see others & Jocelyn’s papery month over at the The Reading Residence .

    That’s a pretty and full looking Filofax you have there! #paperypeep

    Oh everything looks lovely, especially the Filo Fax! I used to have loads of them – well, that was when I had a “career”. I just felt that I don’t have the need for them now, but seeing this (also saw another Filo Fax in someone else’s post), I’m now yearning for one. Will keep an eye open for them 😉 #paperypeep.

      Thank you. I was the same, having not got a career at the moment I didn’t see the need. But I’ve made mine a household file as well as a diary. I made my own personal size pages relevant and laminated them.
      Birthdays, spending, chores etc.
      Keep your eye out in TkMaxx & Homesense for some bargain Filofaxes.

        That’s such a great idea! Thanks for the tip, will keep my eyes posted 😉

    The washi tape is glorious! I adore how you’ve blinged up your filo fax. I need one in my life now!

      Thank you – I think they are a natural progression as a stationary lover – not long before you get one – two -three haha

    Love your filofax – so pretty – and that washi tape is lovely and colourful. I love the idea of Post Pals – it’s on my to-do list as well! 🙂
