Pens and journals are always on my wish list

Winter joy
Winter delight!

So what is a fountain pen then?

    A pen filled from an external source and containing an ink reservoir that automatically feeds the writing point. [From that has a great article about The History of the fountain pen]

After my post about my new fountain pen, this is what I’ve been looking at…

* Pen and pencil reviews – it’s fascinating reading about pens at DIY Planner. If you haven’t read a pen review recently you should go there now! It is amazing how much you can say about pens, isn’t it?

* The Pen Addict – a whole darn blog about pens!

Hello Kitty and pens is love too* I have The Lamy 2000 pen on my wish list together with these Hello Kitty Cap pens (Limited Edition Hi-Tec-C Gel Ink Pen – 0.4 mm – 9 Color Set!!!). I think I need this set for Christmas!

* High up on my wish list this year is one of those journal from German Pip Studio that Holly blogged about at Decor8! They are so pretty and very shabby chic! Truth be told; I wouldn’t mind getting a bed set or just about anything from Pip!! If you ever see the journals please let me know, I don’t think they are sold online and most defiantly not in Sweden! :-/ I like these journals so much because they are collage style I guess, they remind me of my own design on the patchwork journal and I think I need to experiment a bit more with journal covers next.

  1. I’m getting a kick out of your kick with pens! I love the Hello Kitty tops! I can see why you want them.
    And the journal covers are sweet too.

  2. Hi Hanna,

    I believe we have Pip journals here in The Netherlands. I’ll have a look around. However, I don’t believe that it’s exactly this same cover, so I’ll take a photo first which I’ll send you. I’m about to move though, so it may take me two to three weeks before I can get back to you on this. Is that ok with you? Let me know.

    Have a nice weekend,


  3. It is a dutch studio! I’ll check out online shops but could swap aswell but I see sophie is looking out aswell !

  4. Hanna,

    I’ve been racking my brains trying to remember where I have seen the notebooks before and now remember: it is at a store nearby my home (Expo) and also in one of our national department stores (V&D). I’ll check whether they still have the line you are interested just in case it is the one you have your heart set on. I couldn’t find that specific collection online; however, maybe Mijk can.

    If you follow the link Mijk provided, you’ll see that there is another beautiful collection. Maybe you prefer that one? Let us know. And if you need help translating, don’t hesitate to ask.

    Keep you posted,


  5. Hi Hannah,

    I was in town today and looked for the journals you have pictured but they are no longer sold. The new collection, however, is available both in the stores as online (see Mijk’s comment above).

    I hope you find something that pleases you,

    Have a nice week,


  6. Jag kan inte sv?ra p? att det ?r desamma, men p? Stockhome finns liknande anteckningsb?cker (superfina!), och omslagspapper dessutom!
