For the last few years, the Bay Area has seen little rain. Now it’s come pouring down and will be doing so for the majority of the week. Finals are coming, and I’ve been sick twice already. I know I should be happy about the rain, but some part of me wonders is Mother Nature has a wicked sense of humor.
Hello all. For a while now I’ve wanted a travel case of some kind to safelly carry my pens and a few other necessities. And once again Amazon pulled through for me. A few days ago, I was searching through pen cases online and came accross this one, on sale. The case is definetly bigger than I thought, about 8X4 and 2 inches thick (which gets thicker depending on how many things you put into it); and though I got the black version, it’s made of a sturdy glossy material that makes it look almost charcoal gray. Now, if the inner link g were black too, I would be one hundred percent happy with this. But, I can live with brown. Here are a few pictures of my current set-up:
(I added a charm to one of the zippers for easier opening.)
(Pens from left to right: Parker Hotter in red, Kaweco Sport Inkball, Pilot Coleto 4 chamber, Pilot Metropolitan in black with dot design, Pilot Petit blue, Lamy Safari in Charcoal, Lamy Al-Star in Purple, 3 Pilot Hi-Tec Cs in blue, purple and green, Staedtler Noris Pencil, Red Stabilo, a Palomino Blackwing pencil, Black Artist Loft Pitt Pen, Brown Sakura Pitt Pen, and a Pilot V5 fine point.) I may change out some pens in the future, but for now these are my favorites.
Okay, and on the other side, I have a pocket foldable box cutter, earphones, earplugs (for noisier locations), an eraser and extra ink catridges for my fountain pens, a glue pen, silver sharpie, a portable bottle of medicine, extra earphones in case I break the first pair (which has happened before), and a notebook with sticky notes inside.
With this baby, I’m read for anything!
(Except for Armageddon.)
Well, hope everyone has a great evening!
My Special Edition of James O’Barr’s “The Crow” finally came in, along with Keri Smith’s latest Wreck this Journal. This second I plan to use for my snailmail and craft blog.
Well, have a great day everyone!
Hope everyone started off the weekend well. I met it with a little annoyance, thanks to the neighbor’s sudden decision to renovate her roof. Safe to say, sleeping in will be near impossible till the work is done, leaving my nerves more than just a little frazzled. A happy surprise, however, is the realization that I had this book stashed in one of my bookcases: Keri Smith’s “THIS IS NOT A BOOK.” Why exactly I put it away, I have no idea, but hey, at lease I have something to work on as I go about my day. Anyone else have one of her books, and especially a completed one? Please let me know!
Well, have a great evening and week!
PS: Anyone else finds discover things long forgotten recently?
I realized that I never uploaded a video of this second notebook, but thanks to my wonderful reader Althea, I was reminded and so you can thank her for this guys! Just click the picture and enjoy! (PS: Sorry for the poor lighting in the video, I only had my phone to work with.)
Also, if you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a link to the first flip video I made:
Have a great weekend everyone!
So, who’s participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Last year, I made it to 30,000 words. This time though my plan is just to finish a story, word count not priority. What about you?
After two weeks of waiting, I finally got this in the mail. Though the fountain pen model of the Kaweco Classic is quite popular, I thought to try out another rollerball style pen that takes fountain pen ink. After the disappointment with Noodler’s Nib Creaper, I did some research and found that Kaweco had a better inkball pen. I have to admit, it does. While the Creaper felt too cheap for the amount of money I paid, this one was much more sturdily built (though also made of plastic). At first, it wrote a bit scratchily, but little by little it’s smoothing out. Now I just have to get used to the small size.
How was everyone’s weekend and Halloween?
