I’ve always had a love affair with stationary, but back to school has to be my favorite time of the year. Even when I’m not shopping for all the stuff on my kids’ lists I love spending time wandering the aisles at my local supply store to admire all the new styles of scribblers and pens available for back to school. I almost always walk out with one of each under my arm and a smile on my face. There is something special about a brand new scribbler and pen and all the possibilities they hold.
Our go to brand has been Hilroy for as long as I can remember. Their modern palettes, patterns, and designs make buying them for changing discerning teen tastes easy. Plus they last through everything my teens and tweens can put them through. This year’s product lineup is no different. They are designed to inspire.
I’ve seen the amazing things that can come out of a simple idea when it’s put down on a piece of paper. From the bags I used to design and sell, to the wood carving that my daughter drafted on paper, then crafted in wood working, to the sketches my teen uses to tell a story, each idea is vastly different, but they all share a simple scribbling start.
I love technology, as do my teens and tweens, but when a great idea hits, the first thing we all reach for is a pencil and a pad of paper. In my case writing it down helps me keep track of where my mind wanders in the process of creating and it gives me something tangible to look back on when I’m ready to write. My kids however take their scribbles to the next level and I love it! From sketching ideas for weekend projects, to writing novels, they continue to teach me the endless potential that a simple piece of paper and a pen can hold.
I invite you to check out Hilroy’s new YouTube Channel where they will be sharing stories, demos and did-you-knows, that shows all of the awesome ideas that start on paper. In addition to an inspiring new YouTube channel Hilroy Canada is also on Instagram and they are looking to be inspired by you!
