SO professional

My studio has gradually morphed from being a tool room/bedroom to being a fully functioning workroom for me. We got rid of the bed, and today my huge new shelves arrived. I've got those fabulous mail ones (I think that is what they're called) with tens of little cubes for pens and envelopes and stickers. There is only one thing better than stationery, and that is stationery storage. It is lovely.

Next on the list is a proper office chair, so I can whizz efficiently between computer and work table.

As you can probably tell, life isn't all parties and rock and roll. Mind you, Sue came over yesterday, and we drank A LOT of damson plum gin. I think it must have some magic health giving properties, because today I have achieved much, and felt full of birds.

I love stationery almost as much as I love hardware. An exciting weekend for me is an afternoon at the Stationery Warehouse and Mitre10 Mega.

Umm.. from whence does one obtain damson plum gin? I'm salivating...

Oh, and do you have babylicious T-shirts? I could swear I saw one being worn yesterday.

Hers, yes, I suffer the same illness.

Stephen, I made it. It is very delicious. I've also made damson plum brandy, I think that will be pretty good too.

Get an account with a big stationery firm (say, Officemax) they invite you to their stationery fair every year then.

Freebies!

Stationery porn!

Hmmmmmmm how can I put this... as the Wellingtonista's resident gin expert (Tom who? ;) I feel I must become acquainted with your damson plum gin at the soonest possible juncture.

Would you be open to a trade for a wee bottle of King William Lemon Genevas style gin from a vineyard on the Coromandel?

Martha said...

Sounds like a fair trade to me. Better do it soon or the gin will be drunk.
