New inks into freshly washed pens!
We have been running a stationery shop now for going on eight years and in that amount of time, we’ve always contemplated why we carry Iroshizuku inks but not the standard Pilot inks, and for some reason, we never took action on these ponderings. It was one of life’s great mysteries.
I am squeezing things tight, as I have a few other things that I would’ve ideally liked to have published before the year end, balls crashing down around me, but of course I could not let the year go without a staff appreciation post.
Here are a few journaling topics, should you feel so inclined. It has been an unusual Christmas season to wrap up an unusual year.
We did not get a Christmas tree for the shop for the first time ever. It was both because trees were expensive this year, and also because it seemed a bit pathetic with no customers in the shop. It has been a hairy year.
There’s not much to say about these things. They’re sticky. They’re sort of vague which makes them perfect for sticking on things without having too much rhyme or reason. Family calendars, lunchbox notes, journaling or planners, snail mail. Here are a few photos of them. You can find them on the website here. I’m enjoying the satisfying pile of them on my desk as I peel off one here or there for putting into my notebooks.
