"I like it that everything is real and everything is right;
And I like that it would be like this even if I didn’t like it." - F. Pessoa

#Tomoe river paper has not ceased to impress me. It takes watercolor pencil just fine! #hobonichi #planner #paper

I love watching how creative people are in their hobonichi planner and the entire ‘franchise’ is genius. But the dated planner is not for me (it did take me a while and some considerable effort to quell the ‘need that so bad’ urge in me).However the paper…. oh sigh the paper, thin like bible paper but it actually holds calligraphy on both sides of the page, and watercolor, apparently you can use watercolor on it. (just between my fellow bookbinders, restorers, artist and paper connoisseurs and me; I think it’s actually the coating that has charmed the world, but who cares, sometimes the result is what counts) So yes I did order two packs of blank tomoe river (tomoegawa) paper to see if I can bind my own glorious 400 page notebook. We have so many wonderful paper factories here in Europe but for fountain pen/calligraphy I always seem to end up with Japanese papers.

That was the umpth time I slightly panicked  looking for my keys in every bag, pocket and corner of the shed. The keys that were in the door of said shed, which I just opened a second ago to put away my bike.

Yea….


After owning the complete set of polychromos pencils by faber castell for…. oh almost 10 years and keeping them beautifully sorted in the tin box - wonderful to look at but very inconvenient to use - I finally put them all in a jar, so I actually get to use them more. I feel so brave.
