As promised in my Thank You post, here are the details of the Thank You for 500 Subscribers Giveaway.

Prize No. 1 is a bottle of Inspired Blue Waterman Ink, a Jinhao 159, and a Winnable Executive Journal in black. All are brand new. Click on the links to see my reviews of each.

I love my Jinhao 159 and use it all the time, usually inked with Waterman Inspired Blue, in my Winnable Executive Journal in brown. I think it’s a great combination and I’m hoping you will agree.


Prize No. 2 is a set of three Studio Oh! notebooks, in the Chalkboard theme by Valerie McKeehan, a Zebra V301 Fountain Pen with refills, and a set of ten 0.3 mm Staedtler Triplus Fineliners. All are brand new.

I haven’t reviewed the notebooks so I will tell you that each of them has a quote on the cover: Where There is Great Love, There are Always Miracles – Willa Cather; It is Never Too Late to be What You Might Have Been – George Eliot; and Life is But a Dream. Here is a link to them on the Chapters website; they have 80 pages each and are lined.

I guess I haven’t reviewed the Staedtler Triplus Fineliners either, although I thought I had. Can’t find the review now so here is a link to the 0.3 mm version on Amazon.ca. Please note mine do NOT come with the thick plastic case; they are in a clear plastic bag.

I love these Studio Oh! notebooks; the paper takes fountain pen ink very well. I still really enjoy my Zebra V301 fountain pen, and you can find refills on Amazon at very reasonable prices. And of course Staedtler markers have their own solid reputation. I have a few sets and wanted to share.


Prize No. 3 is another set of Studio Oh! notebooks, this time in the Botanical Blooms theme, which I briefly mention in the linked blog post. I’m also including a smaller (5 x 3.5), lined notebook from Dollarama, featuring mugs, teapots, cupcakes and teacups on the cover. I love using these in my purse. And finally I’ve included a Pentel Slicci 3 barrel multi-pen in blush pink, with four 0.3 mm refills: Baby Pink, Blue Black, and two in Golden Orange. Each item is brand new.


Prize Nos. 4 and 5 are Pentel Slicci 3 barrel multi-pens with four refills each; enough to fill the pen and one to spare.


Prize No. 4 is a pink barrel with four 0.4 mm refills: Green, Purple, Orange and Milky Blue.


Prize No. 5 is a purple barrel with four 0.4 mm refills: Green, Milky Blue, Purple and Lime Green.

I think that’s it. This is my first-ever giveaway so let me know if I’ve forgotten something important! Best of luck to everyone! And thanks again for supporting me, it means a lot!!
