The Rainbow Wishlist

The rainbow has been a symbol of LGBTQ+ pride ever since Gilbert Baker designed the iconic rainbow flag 40 years ago. Fun fact: the original flag design had 8 colours rather than 6. Each hue had its own meaning; pink was for sex, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sunlight, green for nature, turquoise for magic, blue for peace and violet for spirit. Nowadays the official pride rainbow has 2 less colours but is more popular than ever, used to decorate celebrations during pride season all over world.

As it's officially Pride Month, all this week I have a whole host of pride-themed blog posts. My aim is to celebrate the rainbow community - I learnt this term whilst researching the content and I like it alot - in all it's glory, starting with a list of some of my favourite LGBTQ+ creatives...

Papergang Box No.23

For their first Papergang box of 2018, Ohh Deer have teamed up with one of my favourite ever illustrators. Queen of the tropical trend Jacqueline Colley was invited to collaborate on the stationery subscriptions 23rd box. And as expected, Jacqueline created a beautiful collection featuring plenty of plants as well as the odd dinosaur!

Papergang Box No.22

After a very busy end to 2017, I have taken a bit of blogging/ social media break over the last few week. Today though, I am back with a classic Papergang unboxing! This is actually December's box as I forgot to change my delivery address whilst I was back home in Glasgow for Christmas. This silly mistake meant I got a shiny new box of stationery as soon as I got back to Dundee - the best way ever to be welcomed home!

Papergang Box No.19

Happy October everyone! To kick off a month which I want to be filled with lots more blogging than September I have a brand new Papergang unboxing to share. I do a Papergang unboxing every month but often forget to explain what it actually is so to recap - the Papergang is a stationery subscription service from Ohh Deer and I love it a lot!

Papergang Box No.18

I've been back from my week away in Spain for 2 days now and the holiday blues have definitely set in. Everyone knows though that the best cure for holiday blues is a fresh box of stationery and, as luck would have it, the latest edition of Ohh Deer's stationery subscription service was waiting for me upon my return. August's Papergang box was created in collaboration with Ohh Deer favourite Gemma Correll and was just as funny and pug-filled as I hoped it would be!

Papegang Box No.16

After a post talking all about me and my own work, today I am going back to something I am much more comfortable with - oohing over beautiful stationery! I feel a little late to the paper party with this unboxing as this box actually came out in June but it took it’s time getting to me so I only received it a few days ago. July’s box is actually on it's way to me too now so I better get a move on and tell you all about box 16.

Nina Cosford

If you have visited Ohh Deer's online shop recently (or one of their bricks and mortar stores -  a pleasure I have not yet had) then I am pretty sure you will agree they are on a bit of a creative roll at the moment! Their collaboration with Arden Rose created one of the best Papergang boxes and collections to date (read my unboxing post here) and their new Nina Cosford collection is equally as beautiful! I have been a fan of Nina’s work for a while and even interviewed her for Inkygoodness once so when I heard that she was collaborating with my favourite stationery brand I was more than a little excited. Ohh Deer debuted Nina’s collection in February’s Papergang box. Sadly I missed it as I was away traveling but very happily, Ohh Deer sent me a selection of the notebooks from the collection to blog about!
