National Stationery Week Giveaway 1 #PenAndPencilDay


This week is National Stationery Week and as part of that, I have a new giveaway starting every day this week. Each giveaway will last for three weeks and will obviously be stationery themed! This is giveaway number one.


National Stationery Week is from 24th April until 30th April and is all about celebrating the importance of writing. In these digital times (oh wow that makes me sound very old..) some people rarely feel the need to pick up a pen or a pencil to write. With memo and notes functions on phones and more.


Emails and text messages which have replaced letters predominantly. As a slight stationery addict who gets excited every December not just over Christmas, but also the fact that the new year is coming and that means a new planner to write in… I love stationery and I love the idea of a week to celebrate it.


If you want to join in on social media with this special week, pop to the  National Stationery Week website for more information. Also you could use any of the following hashtags this week:



Each day this week has a theme for social media and today’s is #PenAndPencilDay . So today’s prize that you can win via the Gleam widget at the bottom of this page is very aptly a lovely Sheaffer black ballpoint pen.

My usual competition and giveaway rules can be found here – A Cornish Mum’s Competition Terms and Conditions.


UK Only – make sure you keep an eye out for all of the competitions coming this week, there will be a new one every day between now and Sunday when the last one goes live. All stationery themed, perfect if you love it as much as I do!


Good Luck!

    there is nothing better than being at work and pulling out your favourite pen. the one that makes you smile.
    when you write a list having a fun pen to do it with makes it seem much more important.
    when you need to write a card to someone dear but just can’t think of what to say, your favourite pen will always be there!
    the pen is indeed mightier than the sword.
