Kirsty @ The Little Craft Mouse

I’m a creative stationery addict who loves chocolate and a glass of white wine once in a while. I live in North Devon and I’m a work at home mum. I dabble in different arts and crafts, but there is one consistent thing I have always used. My bullet journal.

After being one of those people who’s bag is always full of far too many thing I could never find a pen at the bottom of my bag. I designed my Notebook Bookmark and my pen is now always handily attached to my journal. Before becoming a mum I was a graphic designer and that has naturally lead me to designing printables for use in notebooks and bullet journals.
