For #FountainPenFriday, it seemed entirely appropriate to share the reasons why I love writing with fountain pens. In fact, I actually write most of my journal entries and letters using one. Writing a letter without using one has become a little odd now. It happens, when the paper isn’t right for the fountain pen ink but it is rare. As such, here are my top ten reasons why I use a fountain pen – and hopefully, to tell you why you should too!
I used my Manuscript Curve Fountain pen for this, which I am really enjoying writing with. It has a very smooth ink flow and is very comfortable to hold. This pen is also inexpensive so works for any budget!
Moleskine is a name that most people have heard of – whether or not the individual is a stationery addict. They are a very well known brand in the stationery world. Mostly for their vast range of notebooks but they do have a ton of other products too. In the past, I have tried the odd product of theirs and thought they were decent. However, today, I wanted to share one that I very recently got – and my initial thoughts on it. The Moleskine Bullet Notebook from the Art Collection. This was one of the items from my National Stationery Week package and I am so utterly in love already. Since it’s #LetsGetCreativeDay, I figured I would showcase how I am using mine.
I really do not know how I’ve spent this whole time without one and am super excited to actually use it as a travel journal in the coming year or two – once I actually make some proper travel plans! But I do think it is versatile enough that you can use it for pretty much anything – even as an ordinary notebook.
It is World Stationery Day! And what better way to celebrate this wonderful day than my sharing a variety of stationery to meet a variety of needs. I was lucky enough to receive a lovely bundle of items from some of the National Stationery Week sponsors in the past few weeks and I wanted to share what was in the bundle today. Many of these items will also be appearing in their own posts or within other posts so I will share a link with you so that you can see them in action.
With the #PencilDay theme, it was only fitting that I spoke about some incredible pencils that I adore: the Sprout pencils. These “Plant Your Pencil” pencils can be planted and grown into a variety of different herbs, flowers or vegetables. A few of the sets actually also come with beautifully engraved quotes too. They also can be engraved by a logo or name, if your company is looking for sustainable pencils!
It’s National Stationery Week! Day one’s theme is #MakeANoteMonday so let’s jump right into that! It’s actually interesting to see how everyone is going to interpret this theme. There are plenty of different ways to interpret this. As most of us are restricted to our homes, I thought of some ways for you to get involved from the comfort of your own home! Whilst this theme might just for Monday, I think these ideas are definitely something you can carry on throughout the weeks. They are particularly effective during this period where you might need something to do or a way to cheer up your friends or family.
These ideas are a great way to promote self-care too, using stationery. You can get as creative as you want. Fancy adding more colours or drawing? Sure! Go ahead! You can also just keep them simple if you prefer, it’s completely up to you. Some of these ideas will also work to help bring joy to other people, which is always a bonus!
