Groovy Rainbow Circa

So, my new scrapbook cover for my Levenger Circa notebook might be a little TOO psychedelic. For a work notebook anyways. But I kinda love it! This was the best $0.14 scrapbook paper I’ve found at Michael’s yet.


It’s a Circa, it’s a rainbow, it’s AWESOME.

Look how perfectly this paper matches the Circa Tab Dividers I already had! Also shown are 3/4″ aluminum discs in the now-discontinued plum color. And I just happen to have its counterpart colors in Lamy Safari fountain pens!


Rainbow Circa, meet the Lamy Safari. You were meant to be.

As usual, most of the inside of my Circa is always the undated daily template I created. It let’s me track my project time and write notes in an unobtrusive grid, with a full page grid on the back. It is available on my blog for free download here.


This planner template works perfectly for me.

I use the tab dividers as separators for Calendar, Todo’s, Reference, Personal (since I use it primarily for work, I sometimes want to keep personal stuff too) and whatever else I want to keep organized! Shown here is another year-on-two-pages calendar template I made, it’s available in my templates section although I haven’t updated it for 2015 yet.


The calendar section, another custom template of mine.

Just thought I’d share this glimpse into my main Circa notebook.

Pen Cleaning Day = Lamy Photo Op Day!

Sunday was pen cleaning time, perfect for some Lamy Safari fountain pen love.

What My Pens Are Named – Part 6

What My Pens Are Named – Part 6


Continuing the “What My Pens Are Named” series, my white Lamy is named the Snow Queen. NOT Elsa from Frozen! I had the traditional Hans Christian Andersen Snow Queen in mind here, way before Disney made their movie. 🙂


This was a tough pen to name! I pondered Scarlett, Carmen, Ruby, Lola, Rose…. Nothing seemed to fit! So instead, it is just Red.


My pink Lamy is Strawberry Shortcake. I got this not long after Skeletor and Papa Smurf, so was still in my cartoon phase haha. And I loved that cartoon as a kid.

Neon Coral:

I named my new Neon Coral pen! It is such a happy coraly tropical color, I named it after the beautiful Bougainvillea flowers I saw while vacationing in the Caribbean last year. So, Bogie for short. 😀 Which just brings Humphrey Bogart to mind, which seems incongruent with a pink red pen, but I actually kinda love that too.

All of them together:

Shel Silverstein – Listen to the ….


Listen to the mustn’ts, child
Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…..
Anything can happen child.
Anything can be.
– Shel Silverstein

Levenger Circa Notebook with custom cover and Lamy Safari fountain pens. The one downside to my fine-nibbed pens? They REALLY don’t like writing on sticky notes.
