I like pens. Fountain pens especially. Although Pilot G2’s are pretty darned sweet too. I also like notebooks. Paper. Ink. Office supplies in general. Markers. Watercolors. Art supplies. Coffee. LOTS OF COFFEE. Also ….. sketchbooks. Reading books. Ebooks. Ereaders. Geeky gadgets and tablets. Super cute animals. Funny stuffs. Peanut Butter Captain Crunch.

All of this stuff I may or may not be posting about here.

The blog name comes from this comic.

    Nice blog! Are you on FPN, by chance? I swear your pics with the Maruman Mnemosyne word cards look familiar. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I am, but post pretty infrequently! My user name is “chefz” on FPN and FPGeeks, and “faustine2012” on Instagram.

        Woot. I am swanjun there. ๐Ÿ™‚

        As a fellow pink-ink-loving Joss Whedon fan, lemme know if you’re ever in the market for a penpal. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • pensandart January 16, 2015 at 3:16 am

        I have been thinking of that, coincidentally! I think I’d like to have some penpals for 2015. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Also, I have five Safaris, a Logo, a Studio, an Al-Star, a Vista, and a 2000. ๐Ÿ˜€

        Cool! I just got my first Studio last year, haven’t tried the 2000 yet. Or the Logo. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Logo has the same nib as the others, so it’s a very similar experience but it does *not* have the triangular grip of the Safari/Al-Stars, so it’s the Lamy I’d recommend for someone who hates that grip. Personally, I find it very comfortable.

    Dunno if you can see my email from within your blog dashboard, but if so, feel free to send a msg if you feel like doing the penpal thang. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Would you be willing to sell a printable file for a horizontal weekly layout? I love the the style of your layouts but I’m looking for a horizontal spread. Thank you

      Gmbeezy – do you mean the Pretty Pretty Planner in a horizontal layout? What size are you ideally looking for? In my mind, I’m picturing the standard weekly boxes on two pages as the typical “horizontal layout”?

    Would you be willing to create the same style but in a horizontal layout? TY

    Hello, LOVE your Pretty Pretty Planner! Just finished printing off the rest of 2015. I am wondering if you are going to do a 2016 planner like this? Will you be posting it soon? I love how you allow changes (which of course I did a minor one) But the BEST part (besides the colors) is that I can go in and add my family/friends birthday’s to the pages before printing!

      Hi Crazy Wife! I’m so glad you like it!! I do plan on 2016 versions, it just might be a month or so yet before they are available. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi, Just wanted to tell you that I love your calendars. I look forward to this time of year because I get ready for the next year calendar. Your calendars are very simple and very easy on the eye. I love it. I have recreates one of your 2015 calendar and would like to share back with you (2016) so you will have less work to do with one of them. I know how time consuming it is. Thank you for your hard work and for creating a calendar that address many needs.

    Soo…am I the only who came here expecting to see a quote attributed to John Calvin?
    (I wonder if “church geek” is a thing)

    I don’t know if this will get to the pretty pretty calendar person. But I work at a church and my mama works in a school office and we ALL have levenger systems and the calendar templates have saved my life so so often! Will there be a 2017 release anytime soon? We are willing to pay for the file!
