My Favourite Things Part 3, Project of the Day and The Way of The Prompt!

Dear Scribblers

One of my first entries on The Crafty Scribe blog was about my favourite stationers - Smythson of Bond Street. I'm sure it's no surprise that their products are showing up again in My Favourite Things series.  Click here if you want to read the original entry.

When you enjoy writing by hand, you begin to appreciate the feel of a free-flowing ink pen and the smooth paper that will become the depository of your thoughts and ideas.

The name Smythson is linked to history, style, elegance and quality. Using their products evokes the feeling that you are part of that.

One of my special presents each year is a new diary. I'm also lucky to own their  journals, notebooks, writing pads and correspondence cards. Each one has a different use, although a couple of them I can't bring myself to use yet, I just love to stroke and look at them! Even on days when writers' block encroaches, putting one of the notebooks in front of me brushes the negativity away and lets inspiration spring forth.

Note: If you ever find yourself in Bond Street, London, drop into Smythson. Not only to see all their lovely products, but to visit their mini-museum which explains their history and also displays famously-owned diaries and notebooks from the past, such as royalty and movie stars.

Project of the Day: Do you have favourite products that you like to craft, write or draw with? Do you have them at hand to use or even just to look at to give you inspiration? Make up an area, maybe in a basket, box or file and put all your best bits and bobs together where they are easy for you to get hold of, that way when you are in need of a boost, or when an idea hits, you are ready to go.

Happy Scribing!

Don't forget to follow me on Twitter to get regular Prompts for Journalling and Scrapbooking. Take each one and jot down ideas which you can turn into a layout, mini-book, journal entry, story or art page. Have fun with them. Who knows where your imagination and memory will take you.
