  1. Wahoo, what a haul!! Love seeing other people’s goodies. I see the reference for the washi tape but am wondering about the stickers? Thanks for the eye-candy!


    • Glad you enjoyed my post. The stickers came from the same store as the glue. We used them on envelopes at Christmas for a little extra appeal and they turned out very cute.

  3. Washi tape and tea! Perfect accessories. Looks like you’ve got quite the set-up here!

    I got myself a TWSBI Diamond (the 580AL pink one, in Medium) for a Christmas present to myself, and I LOVE it. Wow, it seems so much smoother than any of the other pens I own.


    • Indeed. I am a sucker for both washi and tea.

      So glad you like the TWSBI. Which ink did you load it with?


      • I tested it out with a sample of Diamine’s Pink Glitz. So pretty!


  4. Coccina makes a glue stick! I had no idea. Have you used it before? Does it smell like the pot paste?


    • Yes, it smells like the paste. Yummy fragrance!
