Black Cats and Magic – October’s Stationery Box

Black Cats and Magic

October’s Stationery Box has landed! This month’s theme was Black Cats and Magic!  I wanted to give you all a little treat as the dark nights are drawing in!

This was a truly international box, with contributions from Canada and Australia. Waiting for parcels to arrive through customs was more stressful than I’d planned though so next month’s box is going to be sourced from rather closer to home (in fact it’s all here already!)

Aurore McLeod ArtworkThe amazing stickers were handmade for us by Aurore McLeod. If you are not familiar with her work, do check her out. I’m a huge fan and have a mini gallery in my hallway. As soon as I saw her Halloween Misfits I knew they were perfect for this month’s box!

You can find her on etsy, Facebook and Instagram. I love the Bashful Bat, Problem Hair Pumpkin and Can’t be Bothered Cat!Black Cats Paper Clip

Have you noticed the great little tabs so even those of us with the shortest finger nails can get them off the backing paper easily! Thanks Aurore x

The lovely Ashley from Sparkly Crafty Shop in Canada made these paper clips for us. I love how the hat glitters! Purple is my favourite colour so when I spotted these I knew I wanted them for our box. Fell out with Canada Mail slightly in the process though!

November CalendarHopefully you’ll find a November calendar a useful addition to your box. Let me know if you like it and I can make a calendar page a regular addition. Punch it and put it in your planner or pin it to your memo board so  you can circle the day to order next month’s box 😉

I know lots of you had been lusting after these pens! I now have lots of stock in all colours. They make great Christmas presents. I have one in most colours for myself and the neon green as my ‘packing pen’ so I can’t lose it.

Black Cats

These cheeky chaps were all hand cut and laminated by me. I went a little overboard on numbers it would seem so you may find them popping up in your orders for some time to come. 

I love what one of our subscribers has done with her black cats: 

I also couldn’t resist these cute little witches! I loved Dorrie the little witch stories as a child and my son loves reading my old book now. These lovely ladies reminded me of her. I’ve printed them onto vellum which you can punch and use as dividers, add to your scrap book or just look at and admire their beauty.  I’d love to see how you use them. Be sure to tag me on Instagram so I can share your creativity.

I chose these washi tapes as they not only match the theme but I thought they could be used all year round. The gold moons are almost festive.

The box wouldn’t be complete without a little magic!  Popping candy is truly magical in the eyes of a five and thirty five year old alike. You should also hear it when it accidentally ends up in the washing up water.  Minutes of fun!

The little glass bottle contains some very powerful magic! Be careful to keep the stopper tightly closed so that it doesn’t escape.  It will be there for you when you need it most. Just hold on tight and whisper your favourite magic word then watch as you boss sprouts a tail or the traffic warden gets lost on her way down the street. I can not be held responsible for any irresponsible use of magic though!

November Stationery Box

November’s Stationery Box is now available to order. I aim to have them posted by the 17th November and will be releasing December’s slots around the same time. If you want to make sure that you don’t miss out, set up a recurring payment using paypal. You can cancel at any time as long as that month’s payment hasn’t already gone out.

I have a handful of October boxes remaining reduced to £10 until midnight tonight if anyone would like one?
