Say 'hello' to photographer Grace Hill. She's the latest person to tell us about her life in stationery. We like Grace; she likes fountain pens. And she's quite enthusiastic about sticky notes (these need their own mini subscription!).

First things first, what's your name?

Grace Hill

Photographer Grace Hill

What's the best thing you've ever received in the post?

Probably either flowers from my dad when I was little and he went to Morocco (he surprised my mum and I!) or flowers from my boyfriend on my 18th birthday when we were doing part of our relationship long distance and he couldn't see me!

What's your current favourite stationery item?

Post it notes – if I don't write on them, things don't get done!!

Are you a diary writer? Tell us about your journal habits if you are (and don't worry if you're not!)

I'm not! But I do blog, so I suppose that's a virtual diary!

And are you a list maker?

Most definitely!

Favourite ink colour?

Blue! Something about traditional blue fountain pen ink. I was the only kid in my classes throughout school to write everything with a fountain pen and blue ink!

Your favourite place to write?

Probably in my room at night, I seem to be most creative and in control then, so I can plan ahead and get things organised!

Last thing you posted?

Camera equipment!

Want to have a peek at some of the fabulous images that Grace captures? Head over to and prepare to be amazed. She's pretty keen on furry things, tea and travel so if they're up your street you'll get on great!
