also i took that photo in the image myself and *gasps* IT LOOKS KINDA GOOD! ofc i had to go and use the wrong font for ‘marshmallow harmonies’ though, IM SORRY.
I may be slightly addicted to stationery.
Scratch that, I’M COMPLETELY ADDICTED. To pens, pencils, washi tape, CALLIGRAPHY PENS. Anything and everything I will happily accept. (I literally went to Officeworks a few days ago to get a binder for one of my classes and a 2019 diary. I’m late, I don’t care.) Today’s post is for all the fellow stationery addicts out there – I see you.
Today I’m collabing with Sydney so we can share some of the supplies we use in our journals, and just in general. This post has been a long time in the making…. a really long time. Like, we-planned-this-back-in-November-2018 long time.
Sydney has been part of the blogosphere for a year and a half, and her posts always make my day. She is an inspiration and friend to many in the community – please go give her a follow and some love.
Let’s move on to the stationery* swatches! And a little explanation of course 🙂
*IF ANYBODY COMMENTS BELOW ‘STATIONeRY’ I WILL FORCE FEED YOU WAFFLES. ALTHOUGH THAT WOULDN’T BE SO BAD.
First off – my coloured pens. I have some nice ones from Muji – I’m pretty sure they’re 0.5mm? The Tiger ones are more like a felt tip – there was a black one but my dog ate it*.
*IF YOU KNOW ME YOU WILL KNOW THIS IS A LIE. I HAVE NO PETS. IT BROKE… I’M NOT QUITE SURE HOW. THE INK BARREL PART CAME OUT AND… IT BROKE.
My beloved textas. These have a massive variety, are quite cheap, and you can do a version of calligraphy with them! What’s not to love? The sun yellow, yellow. light brown, and colour #991 in my Tombow Dual Brush Pens make lovely sunflower drawings… as you can hopefully see (fingers crossed this formatting looks okay).
I got all these for Christmas last year and I’m thrilled, to say the least. These pens… I can’t recommend them enough. Tombow has such high quality stuff, it’s excellent. The pens are quite long though – watch out! My favourite is probably a tie between 452, 723, and 991.
My highlighter collection is… vast. My favourites are actually the ?? ones – lovely to write over and they don’t smudge. The random ones are a three pack I got somewhere… a long time ago*. I think my second favourites are the FaberCastell Textliner 1546’s – especially the top colour**.
*MY MEMORY SUCKS SOMETIMES.
*IT LOOKS NICER IN REAL LIFE. I DID A HORRIBLE JOB SCANNING THESE.
OTHER. my most used, yet most random bit. The K+K pen is one of my nice black pens, and I use it often in conjunction* with my Muji pens. The white out tape blends in with most white backgrounds** and the Faber Castell 2B pencil is one I use a lot… yet I can’t currently find it. The eraser is just a regular rubber. (I have another good one that is shaped like an echidna and I use it’s… rear end.)
*OOH, LOOK AT ME USING A BIG WORD.
**AS YOU WOULD HOPE FROM ‘WHITE TAPE’.
i literally have no questions so please… just tell me what stationery you like in the comments? (also I tried to make this a shorter post! because that’s what you guys wanted! i try to please you.) AND THE SURVEY IS STILL OPEN! take it here please and thank you
