Pencil Me In // Etsy Buy



Dearest friends of the internet, please let me introduce you to my new scrummy treasures, purchased from a wonderfully sleek and quirky Etsy store DubuDumo **big dreamy sigh**


When surfing the tumultuous waves of online delights, it can be super tricky to choose that special piece of desk wear that will organise your chaos, keep you up to date and hold your hand, leading you through a new year, with ease and style!


There are so many gorgeous designs, beautifully sumptuous papers and all manner of notation devices that when you see one (or the two, in my case!), that really jump out at you, then you just know it's meant to be! Hey, I take my stationary seriously...




This leather covered academic monthly/ weekly planner (or journal as I will be making FAST use of this beauty), and it's cute partner in crime, the standing weekly scheduler found their way into my greedy little hands through the Aladdin's cave that is Etsy, specifically DubuDumo. Seoul based but shipping worldwide, DubuDumo sell all kinds of organisational wonders and stationary delights, from sticky note macaroons to animal shaped wooden business card holders, so good I had to buy two pieces!












Both of these planners were exactly as described online and if I dare say, even better in the flesh. The soft buttery fabric used for the blush pink diary is beyond gorgeous and the quality paper used for each of them is such great quality. The desk planner sits perfectly sound and displays two pages, ready for your weekly notes, reminders and important dates, not forgetting space for your all important to do list! The smaller slim diary has the perfect combination of a year review spread over two pages, monthly sheets and of course the ever useful daily slots. There are also a great amount of empty pages that always house the odd phone number, blog post idea and doodle procrastination!




A gentle push to get my shiz together, to keep on track of up coming events and to remind myself to record more of my thoughts and ideas but also daily happenings. Now, where do I buy a purdy pencil with which to write upon my shiny new pages...

  3. And what better place to get your essentials (and of course the occasional naughty treat), than independent makers, designers and crafters, supporting the hand made and small boutique business : D

  4. Totally agree. I set a goal for myself late last year to try and be conscious about every single purchase I make and buy from small, indie makers whenever possible. It feels much more rewarding to shop that way.
