Since I started this blog (yes,a whole two weeks ago!), I have spent a little time surfing around other peoples blogs, and have been astounded at what I have found and also discovered about others as well as myself. For instance, I have just discovered that I hoard (or collect) pens, and have for my whole life. I love them. Also, diaries/planners as well as notbooks and other stationary related products. I never imagined that others around the world had similar interest and collections – or much to my surprise, actualy atively enjoy, record and document them!
I recently wrote to http://mysupplyroom.blogspot.com/, about his collection of Bic pens, to which he replied that he would like to see pictures to mine. It wasnt until he asked that I realised I dont have any pictures of my pen collection. In fact, all these pens live in various drawers and shoe boxes scattered around the house and garage, with hundreds still at my parents place. It was at that point that I realised that, up until now, I have been an ‘in-the-closet’ collector. No one really knows about my stationary collecting habits, not even my husband, who to his credit, is not a nosey man and thus does not open shoeboxes and drawers.
So, George, if you are reading this, thank you very much for inspiring me, I have taken a photo of the pens that I am sending you, and intend to start going through all those boxes to both clean them out and document them as well.
Also, being female, I went out on a bit of a online stationary shopping trip and and anticipately awaiting Ebay purchases from all around the world! Will blog these as they come in.
