Total number of notebooks/pens/ink bought since self-imposed spending freeze (Jan 1/14): 19

  • 1 pen + 1 bottle of ink = 2 items in a gift set on Jan 14
  • 1 bottle of KoninginneNach-Blauw from Akkerman on Feb 5
  • 1 Visconti Rembrandt Calligraphy set in Red = 2 items (pen and ink bottle; not going to count the extra nib!) from Goldspot on May 15

  • 1 bottle of De Atramentis Heather Violet from Goldspot on May 15
  • 5 pens, 4 notebooks, 3 tins of ink cartridges from Reid’s on June 14 (future blog posts all)

(I’m thinking “spending freeze” is no longer applicable. How about “spending observation”? :))

Topics covered since last update:

  • Planting a tree with the father and the husband – quite the family adventure
  • My sister testing out my Visconti in my Happiness Journal: “‘Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all. – Tennyson”
  • Planning out a new Ink Journal (future blog post)
  • Fun at Reid’s Stationers
  • Bought a smaller purse on trip to Banff; Filofax Flex Planner doesn’t really fit. Contemplating a pocket planner

Until next week, happy writing!
