A new year always means the chance for a new diary and some new stationary. This year it's safe to say I went a bit bonkers on the stationary front. I love buying my yearly diary from Sticker Stack as they source their products from Japan and Korea which means lots of beautifully designed pieces. This year I got the same diary as I did last year but in blue as it was the perfect size and has a really nice layout inside. I also bought some sticker sheets from them and a nice pen too.
The majority of stickers I then bought were from The Lemon Cat Shop who have an etsy page too. I spent a lot of my time trying to decide what to buy and in the end I treated myself to quite a lot of general stickers, memo stickers, diary stickers and mochi tape. The Lemon Cat Shop sell craft supplies and kawaii stationary. I'd certainly recommend both shops if that's the sort of thing you're into as well. I like my diary to look colourful and fun to use and both Sticker Stack and The Lemon Cat Shop has allowed me to do just that.
At Christmas I got a lovely new set of Derwent Artist pencils. I've enjoyed trying them out on this drawing of some houses in Sanna, Ardnamurchan. The colours are very vibrant and the pencils themselves blend together nicely. I look forward to using them in future work.
