It’s World Stationery Day!

What kind of #stationeryaddict would I be if I didn’t celebrate #worldstationeryday?

If I had my own brick and mortar store I would celebrate the day surrounded by beautiful stationery…

OH wait!!

I do that already!!

Thoughts of the Future

The infamous Stationery Show in London gives me #goals. I hope to (one day) walk around and feel the different textures of paper, see the new product lines of my favorite stationery designers, and most of all to stock up on more notebooks!! (Of course, after I achieve what I have set out over the next five years).

My love for stationery overflows into desk accessories and I’ve never worked at a desk in my life😂. But if I did…you can bet it would be the prettiest, cleanest white and gold desk you’ve ever seen. I vision it now:

A gold stapler

A 24karat gold block as my paperweight.

All white pens, pencils, and notebook covers. I would throw in a few gold pens.

Gold paper clips. Jumbo to a mini in size.

My charging port area would be set up with a huge comfy gold, leather, oversized chair adorned with a white sequence pillow and a fluffy white, long pillow.

The chargers and cords would be gold and my laptop alternating gold and white stripes.

My office chair would be a metallic gold while my desk, a crisp white.

Pictures hanging throughout the space that is simple and singular in design.

Everywhere gold and white intricate frames, some small and some big. No pics occupy the frames. Instead, beautiful papers that deserve to be framed.

I would have an adjacent desk that is black with gold drawer pulls and white front faced drawers. There would be something white and abstract that displays an art form on my desk.

…….

No, I’ve never thought about what my office would look like 😂😂😂


Do You have a desk job? Is your desk a mess or nice and organized? If you have an office, share with me how it is decorated. I would love to hear about it!!


I started a post about yesterdays # put I didn’t finish it because… who the hell knows why but I didn’t. This post is being published a bit later than my normal but what the hell? It’s all good in tha hood.

I will share with you my favorite brand of pen and that is Sigma Micron micro pigmented artists pens. These pricey archival ink pens are worth every cent. The words you string together will be forever when using them. Each time I write something I want to last, in terms of actual documenting, I use these to ensure the life of my words live on.

Do you have a favorite brand of pen or do you use a particular ink tip?

I hope today brought smiles and laughter in your lives and for tomorrow,

I’ll deal with that when it gets here.

Ta-ta,

4.19.19

I am ready to let go of the attachment

that has caused me to quit giving.

I am a giving person

and do so with thought

But

That’s stopped.

I am ready to rid myself of

the idea

I am not good enough.

I am.

I am ready to initiate change in my life

and

trust the outcome.

I have stopped trying to find

me

And now

Allowing it to be.

I am stepping from behind

what everyone expects,

including me;

Me to be.

An Extensive Guide Defining 62 Terms of Stationery

An Extensive Guide Defining  62 Terms of Stationery

Let’s begin by acknowledging the other form of the word stationary which means to stand or stay in one place, not moving.  The spelling of the two is different by one letter. Make sure when you are discussing stationery, as discussed here on Revenge of Eve, you use the spelling with the ‘e’.  I wouldn’t feel this was necessary but I have seen it misspelled being used in this context quite a few times.

Although my love of paper and office supplies can be traced back to my childhood,  I never knew the extent of the terminology that defines it. To be honest I wasn’t aware that stationery included office supplies.  I innocently thought it to be pretty, decorated or personalized paper pad/notebooks. See even I learn something every day!

That leads to the research behind this in-depth post, defining 62 terms of stationery.  Be sure to comment if I have left something out. By no means do I have it all figured out.  Y’all ready?

Let’s do this thang:  Beginning with the definition of stationery.

Stationery is a mass noun referring to commercially manufactured writing materials, including cut paper envelopes, writing implements, continuous form paper, and other office supplies.  It includes materials to be written on by hand or by equipment such as computer printers.

Sad but True: R.O.E. News

Updated 4.5.2019 – Thank you, Ashley, for your donation of $10 and for helping me figure it out. This problem has been solved ❤

Due to recent events, I am saddened to say that I cannot afford to pay the up-coming annual fee that allows me to operate Revenge of Eve.

Revenge of Eve

The annual fee of $97.00 is due no later than April 25th.


Because of a recent backslide in my mental health, I was forced to take a week off from work. There are no paid days off for those of us who work as service workers in the restaurant industry. On top of that, the hourly rate at which we are paid – $2.13, doesn’t compensate for any lost time acquired. Basically, I sell my personality in order to provide an income for my daughter and myself. When I am experiencing a mental episode I am unable to pretend that it does not exist. The timing in which this episode occurred couldn’t have come at a worse time; site renewal month.

As it stands, I owe $300.00 for March’s bills which I aim to pay, plus late fees, this week along with my car insurance and storage unit bills. This totals $575.00, not including late fees.

My living situation will also change in the upcoming two months. My daughter and I will get a small space of our own. April has always been the hardest month of the year for myself mentally for various reasons. I was hoping to change that this year but so far, yes only one day in, it isn’t looking so good. But I will say this… I am grateful to have a job, a roof over my head for the time being, and the ability to stay connected using my newsletter.


If you find it possible to donate, all donations will go to keep this site afloat.

Revenge of Eve

Keep R.O.E. Alive

All donations will go to the operations of the site, Revenge of Eve.

$5.00

If you wish to donate more than $5, you can do so by opting to purchase multiples by changing the number in the box allocated. This will be done in $5 increments ( number in box: 4=$20 example).

Paper packs will be available in two sizes and will include vintage papers, vintage ads, designer paper, cardstock and embellishments. No two packs will be the same. Want a custom theme pack? Chat with me to see if I have what you want!

Finding the silver lining in this situation, I will not lose the domain because it was purchased later than the plan. Please keep an eye out for postings that will offer paper product packages that can be used in your journals for creating beautiful pages or for use in your art journal projects. Because I currently do not have a store for such sales, purchasing a paper package will require you to send me your mailing address via email once payment is processed.

Shipping costs will be calculated into the price of each paper pack except for international shipping. Dependent on international shipping fees, it may not be worth it for you the consumer. Waiting until I have the store up and running may be your best bet for purchasing my products. Also, the prices reflected here are not necessarily the prices of my products in the future. Custom package prices differ.

I will do everything possible to keep things going here on Revenge of Eve. Blogging has been my saving grace and I fear that if it goes, so will I.
