Links From Pyramids To Midori To My New Puppy

04/26/2015

An eclectic bunch of links with a puppy tag…

Little “No Name” kept me company over an extra long week. Hope the coming week is shorter and that she gets a real name. Either way she is sweet, vocal, cuddly and eager to learn more tricks like today’s surprise, jumping into my lap and climbing up to my shoulder without assistance. She’s a Havanese and only a year old as the puppy coat will attest. I am lucky to have found her after three years scouring the listings of rescue groups and attending adoption events. Expect to see more of her in future even if she isn’t into fountain pens which is probably a good thing. One addict in the family is quite enough.

A Few Links Plus A Very Cute Fuzzy

04/12/2015

The idea of a micronation is intriguing. Penandinkdom, anyone?

“Since high school, too, I have written only with fountain pens. Buying new pens and trying out new inks are among the little joys of life that contribute as much — and sometimes more — to one’s happiness than the “big” things.”   Dennis Prager

A Glimpse At Midori Paper And Fountain Pen Ink

04/03/2015

Japanese paper and fountain pen ink can be the best of mates as proven by these initial photos of a Midori Traveler’s Notebook from Jet Pens. Is love too strong a word?

More to come this month on grid notebooks and how useful they can be for keeping a journal whether you are well-organized or live a fractured lifestyle as I do.

It’s Spring And Time For A Paper And Ink Giveaway

03/20/2015

Exaclair is making you an offer you can’t refuse: a notebook plus ink for five readers. The paper is from Clairefontaine’s “Moulin Rouge” collection of notebooks in the pocket size with a different design for each winner. These are not sold in the U.S. which makes them a rare treat. Filled with Clairefontaine paper, this is a notebook that won’t go to waste.

Also, included will be a 10 ml bottle of J. Herbin Rouge Caroubier ink. That’s more than enough ink to get acquainted and hooked on a slightly warm, pinkish-red that is lovely for spring and summer. In a free-flowing nib, I found it a good substitute for a bright red when a bit of subtlety is in order.

To enter the giveaway, just post a comment and a sentence or two about how you would use your ink and pad. This offer is open to residents of the U.S. only. One entry per person with five random winners to be selected, 3/31/2015, at 6pm PDT. Each winner will have until 4/05/2015 to claim their prizes. If not, a replacement winner will be selected. Fulfillment will be handled by Exaclair.

Thank you, Karen, for making this giveaway possible and allowing Inkophile to host it.
