#stationery365

stationery365-mosaicSince 10 September I have started each day by posting a photograph of stationery on instagram. I snap these photos with my iPhone and upload each one with the #stationery365 hashtag that I made up to keep track of them all. As the # suggests I plan to post a stationery pic every day for a year! I love stationery, obviously, and snapping pics on my phone, so I wanted to challenge myself to style and photograph a mini stationery vignette for every day of the year. I don’t know if I’ll manage 365 shots but I’m giving it a jolly good go!

You can see a few of the pics above and if you check out the hashtag you’ll see all the photos I’ve taken and shared so far. If you’re a stationery addict it’s not a bad way to get your fix each morning! You can follow me on instagram, I’m @thegreengable, and let me know what you think of my stationery snaps. I post other pics too, quite a few of the countryside around me, and my dog, tea and biscuits…

So, only ten and a half more months of stationery snaps to go…

PS You have until 10pm GMT tonight to enter my Happy Post Day giveaway to win a prize of your choosing!
