Timely! While I refrain from going abroad, and my friends can’t visit, I’ll be sending them lots of letters.

The silver lining of the current global climate is that I think we're all slowing down and appreciating the little things. Letter writing (and receiving!) is such a joy, and some cute stationery definitely makes it all the more enjoyable!

Japanese stationary is so cute and neat! I always buy book marks in MARUZEN made as paper dolls. And calendars - there is such a variety!
