Do you have stationery or art supply items that are waiting for their own special purpose?
Do you have a purpose in mind but have yet to find the right supplies for expression?
Do you flip between digital and analog throughout the day?

Join artist and web developer Julia van der Wyk as we match up methodologies and systems with our beloved stationery and art supplies. Our daily routines can be structured or fluid, and either way have great opportunities for enjoyment of stationery, pens and ink. We’ll talk about what we do, what we’d like to do, and finding a routine that sticks.

Bring your favored stationery or art supplies, questions, and conundrums!
