I do a regular blog sharing talent that I discover on Etsy and that I think more people need to know about, but now it’s time to share some great supplies and suppliers, starting with Pretty tape (the name says it all) which sells bright and beautiful washi tapes. You’ve not heard of washi tape? Can that be true?? Well don’t worry as here are 3 reasons to buy it and use it ALL the time:

1. If you still send snail mail, someone has to keep me company in the battle against e-mails, then this is perfect for grabbing the attention of the postman so he takes extra care of your letter/card/parcel but also to make the recipient smile before they even open the envelope. Plus, if you need a little help when you wrap presents this will hide a multitude of sins!

2. If, like me, you keep a sketchbook and want to add a bit of colour to the page or even make it a bit less daunting (it can be scary starting a blank page) then this is perfect for sticking around the edges, across the middle or all over your book/pages to get the creative juices flowing

3. Who needs an excuse to make things pretty? Just stick, stick, and stick it everywhere… let’s make the world prettier!

Ok, I’m off to choose my fave tape now and get sticking… hmmmm maybe my sewing machine needs a bit of colour 😉
