Ok so I’m sat at my desk having a thrilling day surrounded by office paraphernalia – staples/ers, rubber stamps, pens, paperclips – the usual office junk. So this week I want to see you getting up close to OFFICE JUNK – ok maybe not junk but stuff that I guess comes under the heading of STATIONERY……..

The rules:
1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. YOUR IMAGE MUST BE TAKEN AFTER THE THEME IS ANNOUNCED.
3. The image must be uploaded in a comment in this thread by 8pm (UK time) on the following Sunday
4. Only one upload per member
5. The person who hosts is the judge for that week's challenge and the judge’s decision is final
6. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week
7. Photos in the thread, no links.

So...if said pieces of stationery are inanimate objects, then they are stationary stationery?

I knew a man who used to put flyers into envelopes but his business folded ...

And the word stationery does really come from the fact that the person selling books (originally) had a fixed place or station and was thus stationary.

Stationery balancing act: bulldog clips, paper clip, hole reinforcers, keyring, Blu-tac, a calculator and too much time to spare!

I see that Chris had the same kind of idea as me and did it better too.

I left it too late and no time for anything else now. Smile
