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 1

These are the first three fountain pens I ever bought – so of course, I gave the trio matching names.

This is my very first fountain pen ever, the Lamy Safari Charcoal bought back in December 2008 at a local art store – I named all my pens, so because of this one’s charcoally nature and because I love the movie, it was dubbed The Dread Pirate Roberts.

Seriously, before a week was out I’d bought my second fountain pen, the Blue with black clip. Because it was so very deep blue, of course it became Indigo Montoya, a play on the movie’s Inigo Montoya. Shown here is the silver clipped version, technically Indigo Montoya II.

Who else could my third pen be but Princess Buttercup?? Again the II. The first one with the black clip somehow got some contaminated ink and has smelled gross ever since, no matter how I clean it. So she’s currently in quarantine indefinitely – this is Princess Buttercup II. I’ll start posting more pics of my pens and their names eventually, but this concludes the Princess Bride Trilogy.

Come on Lamy, we need purple!

Recently bought the Hero clone of the Lamy Safari, aka, the “Fauxfari” (credit goes to somebody online I can’t remember haha), and it’s okay. It was affordable, writes very smoothly, but is a noticeably different quality from the regular Lamy line. When taking a picture of the whole collection, it really highlights why a purple color is needed! Come on Lamy, what gives?

Here Comes The Sun …

Because it’s cold and icy out and I want Spring time temps please! Also, who doesn’t like this song?
