Dig out your sparkly pens again

When was the last time you got something in the mail other than the water bill or a pizza menu? Why does mail always have to be bad news?

Clean and of things to come.

Clean and of things to come. My stationery fetish reaches new heights. Cute pads 2cm by 5cm I must have. 1B pencils and thickly nibbed felts in a black rubber coated organiser shaped like a pyramid. This dispenser will go to the left.
