The Paper Trail Diary is a blog about paper-loving hobbies.

Here you will find:

Books: reviews of some of my favourites, especially ones that have to do with paper goodness; magazines to check out; bookstores to go to; events…

Zines: In-progress updates of the zines I make; features on the zines that I love; zine issues to discuss; events…

Snail Mail: Mail art; snail mail-loving things to buy such as stationery; my pen pals and packaging, mail issues to discuss…

Crafts: Anything else paper-related, really, so the crafts that I make; the goodies that I like to make things with; stores that sell paper things to check out; DIY projects…

The Paper Trail Diary also runs the Chain Letter Short Story Project (a group of people write a short story as a chain letter, it’s then made into a zine) and the Notebook & Pen Swap (people get to send each other notebooks and pens).

So here’s a bit about me:

I’m a big fan of paper. I always have my nose in a book, my hands busy with writing letters to my pen pals all over the world, making crafts or assembling zines. I work in marketing in the publishing industry. I ran the community zine Static Zine and its distro, Static Cloud, and sometimes I make my own personal zines. I love to use Instagram to connect with others and show off the things I love. I will easily squee at cute and exciting things, never say no to a cookie and can easily hold an entire conversation in Facebook stickers. I love finding the next great paper products and books, so thank you for listening to my suggestions!
