Midori letter set

MIdori letter set

I love Midori, so when I saw this letter set I had to buy it.  Pages and envelopes are made of fountain friendly paper.  It’s a pleasure to write on both.  I was especially suprisded with envelopes. It’s almost like having Tomoe river paper envelopes with all sheen benefits.

Uni-ball Signo Needle 0.38 – a review

TWSBI Diamond Mini AL Blue

TWSBI Diamond Mini AL Blue

TWSBI have just announced that it will release a new color of Diamond Mini AL on March 17th. This time  Mini AL will come in beautiful blue, and I love blue!

Probably, as usually, it will be a limited edition, so if you like it you should get it as soon as possible.

I will probably get one and I will write about it in the future, but for now I still have many other products to write about, so bear with me 🙂
