  1. Hm, my stationary wishlist is crazy long, but at the moment I have my eyes on Palomino’s Aquarelle pencils in the wooden box. The box looked gorgeous when I saw it in the shop. I also want to get a Kaweco Al Sport to go with my Traveller’s Notebook.

  2. I’ve been lurking here for quite a while, drooling over each blog post. The chance to win a voucher from Notemaker … well time to wave my stationery addict flag! I have a long list of wishlist items … Moleskine notebooks would be No.1

  3. A TWSBI Diamond mini is on my stationary list. I could also use a Roaring Springs Computation Pad in Buff.

  4. I could do some serious shopping with $250! Thanks for the great giveaway, good luck everyone πŸ™‚

  5. This would be an awesome way for me to outfit my new office. Thanks for being so awesome!

  6. There is a (holi)day for my passion…? Wonderful! Truly a generous giveaway. There are never too many pens and notebooks, just too little shelves…

    Thanks Ana!

  7. If I won, I think I would share this with friends and family I’d like to expose to better materials. It would go a long way. πŸ™‚

  8. Those Craft design scissors are pretty amazing looking. Would love a pair of those.

  9. With a $250 voucher from Notemaker, a Lamy Dialog 3 would probably jump to the top of my stationery wish list – thanks for the the giveaway!

  10. Top of my wish list is a brass Kaweco Sport. And I can always use more pencils and paper too.

  11. Number 1 on my Wish List right now is the Lamy Safari in Dark Lilac. It is such a pretty pen!

    Awesome giveaway!

  12. I need to up my paper game from the cheapie notebooks and scratch paper I’ve been using, so at the top of my wishlist is some nice Rhodia paper.

  14. Fantastic giveaway!! Notemaker is awesome!
    I’ve been wanting a Lamy Studio with a gold nib in the Palladium finish. Or, one of those sweet Herschel bags – the Army Green Little America Backpack!

  15. My stationary wishlist is sheer endless but at the top are a Pelikan SouverΓ€n 400, Diamine Shimmer Inks and a TWSBI ECO.

  16. Notemaker has some beautiful stuff — I’d love to get some O-check items that are not widely available here in the US.

  17. The new Lamy limited edition in Dark Lilac and all the stationery sets from Evil Supply Company.

  18. I’m always looking for decent paper and notecards for correspondence, and interesting inks to write them in…and a new pen wouldn’t be a bad thing either!

  46. Shakespeare’s 400th has reminded me that it is time for us all to take pen to paper and express ourselves!
    A new notebook, fountain pen and bottle of ink would make my day and many days to come.
    Thank you!

  47. Short term i want to buy a Lilac Safari and hope to find a Orange Al-Star. Mid term the
    Monteverde Prima in Turquoise Swirl is one my list. In my future i see the trifecta of Lamy 2000, Pilot Vanishing Point/Capless and Rotring 800 on my wishlist.

  57. I really have been slow getting into the stationery part of this hobby, now may be the time!

  58. I’d love to try a TWSBI mini – never seen one in the flesh but I’ve seen many inspiring blogs and pictures online. That and some lovely stencils!

  60. a tough choice, just started calligraphy, i would love some tomoe river paper and a decent dip pen

  61. Pilot vanishing point in pretty much any color! And am always stocking inks and paper.

  62. Stationery wishlist… More notebooks and notepads (dot-grid by preference), more fountain pens (I want to try some fancier ones!), more inks (all the pretty colors…)

  63. There is too much on my wishlist to narrow it down. That fab Lamy dark lilac is sure catching my eye. I did recently just rip my work bag so I my need to coordinate.

  64. I live by notes and lists. My desk is cluttered with paper, pens, and pencils of all shapes, colors, and brands. Go Lami Safari and Kaweco Sports!

  65. The purple Lamy Safari is beautiful, but I already own 5 Lamy fountain pens. Maybe I will settle for a purple Leuchturm notebook

  66. My children bent a nib of mine, so I need some new nibs. Inks, Inks, Inks. I always need inks.

    I like the look of those scissors.

  67. My stationary wishlist currently is the Midori 10th anniversary tiny tins with tiny TNs. I love em to death and I want that tiny TN more than life.

  68. My wishlist includes a trip to the pen doctor for my Stipula fountain pen. It hasn’t written well in years but I’m terrified to give it to someone to fix. Duh!

  69. No idea what I’d get, but love this place! They’re the best here at home in Australia! Maybe a few inks though…

  70. I don’t think there’s enough room in this comments section for me to list out everything that’s in my wishlist. The latest additions are a Sailor Professional Gear Mini, a Pelican SouverΓ€n M400 in White Tortoise and the Lamy Safari in Dark Lilac.

  71. I’m looking at getting a new Kaweco and a whole bunch of new inks for my current pens!

  72. My wishlist right now is all the coleto refill colors and two 5 part multipens to put them in so I don’t have to carry around 10 of the pens at once (even if they are very pretty) and a pack of tomoe paper to make some notebooks for myself

    1. I forgot to add my wish list πŸ™‚ Hoping for a high-quality scissors and a multi-pen, along with some nice quality envelopes.

  73. I write for a living, so all stationery is wonderful. Can never have enough wood case pencils.

  74. I didn’t know about the NoteMaker website! I can’t stop looking at their bags. The Herschel Little America army quilted backpack is soooo good-looking. Besides storage, I’d like a nice rollerball for work. Haven’t done enough research yet (look at pretty pictures on the internet) to pick one yet, though.

  75. My wish list used to be mostly inks and stub nibs but it’s taken a sharp turn recently into fancy writing paper.

    Next is definitely something deckle-edge, with matching tissue-lined envelopes.

  82. I need more stationery like I need another hole in my head, but to support National Stationery week I’m willing to buy more. πŸ™‚

  83. I am looking for the perfect padfolio or portfolio for my notes and special paper. I am always on the lookout for new notebooks and for trying new items.

  85. More paper, more writing tools, more washi tape… gosh… too much of more. πŸ™‚

  86. The 10th Anniversary mini notebook would be a really adorable blythe accessory, don’t you think?
