stationery addicts anonymous; week 5: Mai

Another week, another meeting. I hope you all find solace in the fact that you are not alone in this addiction :) This week, we meet Mai; a self-confessed stationery addict. 

Remember, the first step to conquering this addiction is to admit that you have one. Moreover, if you find your addiction getting worse in these initial stages - don't worry: it has to get worse before it gets better :)

So without further ado, let's hear Mai's story of her addiction.


I'm only going to show you one component of my addiction. Just this one image alone can tell you that I'm an addict. As you can see, I have an addictive personality (only for stationery...and coffee). I have a love for washi tapes. I use them for scrapbooking (I'm an untraditional scrapbooker, it's more like tape cool stuff on a page rather than decorating it all pretty). I use them to decorate my planner. I use them to decorate my knitting tags that I attach to my projects. I use them to make personalized cards. Washi tapes are AWESOME!!!!!!!


Thank you, Mai, for sharing your story with us. Hopefully, through empathy, we will all be able to conquer our addiction ;)


  1. I recently purchased my first washi tapes (after reading your blog and seeing your beautiful weekly diary!) and seeing this post makes me really want to purchase more!
    I am using washi tapes this year to make the "To/From" tags on Christmas gifts. :)
    Thank you for sharing your collection Mai! And thanks for this weekly segment, Angela.

  2. Ahhh! That's my box of WANT! I *high-five* anyone who has a washi tape addiction ^_^ I'm trying to figure a unique way of displaying my vast stock of washi tapes, as well as making them easily accessible to get too... since, at the moment, they are scattered everywhere and hiding in drawers.
