So last night I finished my current journal, the Pierre Belvedere refill in the purple journal cover, featured in this post. Very pleased with myself. I started it in July of this year; six months worth of words.

1purple cover

I’m impressed with how the journal cover has held up. It’s been in constant use since July. I carry it with me in my bag everyday and from room to room at home (yes I just admitted that. Sigh.)

The last page – right down to the bottom!

The purple cover on the journal shelf, snuggled in between his green brother and a filled refill.

I didn’t have to think about what my next journal would be; I was so excited when I made my “fauxdori” I knew it would be the next in line.

4new journal

Yes I’ve been anxious to get into this one.

5started writing

Just started to write last night, before bed. Will add more tonight.

6jinhao black and silver

I’ve been using my Jinhao 126 in black and silver (more on that pen in an upcoming post) and am starting to like it. It’s taken some time and effort but I think I’m finally there. Like breaking in a new saddle.

7typeset replacement book

I bought these refills at Coles and I just love them. They are also by Studio Oh! and are called Whimsy. The typewriter one says “Write it in your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” They were on sale for $6.99 for three, down from $9.99. So I bought three!!

11packaged notebooks

The other two packs unopened. The Whimsy pack looks smaller than the Flowers pack but I think it must be the angle of the photo. Because I measured them against each other and they are identical in size.

So that’s my new journal. Very excited to write in it. I will keep you posted on my progress.
