Mailbox Goodies: JetPens, A Journal, And More Pens!

I made a heavy JetPens order a little while ago. Literally, heavy. It was 5.5 lbs and arrived by FedEx. Most orders I make at JetPens arrive via USPS and take three days, but this one took over a week! What a tortuous wait it was! I picked up a bundle of Rhodia No. 16 dot pads for calligraphy practice and letter writing, a bottle of Rohrer & Klingner's calligraphy and drawing ink in Ocker, as well as the Uni Jetstream alpha grip I have been longing for... forever.

I won a great giveaway at Jenny Frith's blog - and if you dont follow her blog, you should. It's full of gorgeous work that I drool over regularly. Thank you so much for the paper, Jenny! I had to leave behind all my paper when we moved so I'm thrilled to have a new stack to give a home to!

YES. I saved this.

And all this. Except the paper which was promptly stolen by certain animals.

This is a wicked stack. AND! There's some stickers in here too!!
Kevin was able to locate a Kaweco sketch pencil with a 5.6mm lead for me. Free shipping over $50 so I picked up a variety of colored leads at the same time. He spoils me rotten. I guess I'll keep him. Parcel
Not that I can draw properly or anything.

It's pretty cool and encourages me to sketch, even though I have no idea what I'm doing.
This beautiful tea brown Midori World Meister Dainel notebook comes from The Journal Shop in the UK! Thank you so much to the kind folks over there for the giveaway! Also, there was a lovely note on adorable stationery included. What a pleasant surprise!

This is all so cool! I miss getting Jetpens orders, because I have to order a lot to make the shipping worth. And when I order bottles of ink I always stress about them arriving broken or anything :(

Azizah Asgarali said...

Aw understood.. though that just means you get a massive fun order :) Even I worry about the bottles being broken. So far, nothing has ever broken. I guess you could get insurance?

Azizah Asgarali said...

I've already started using some of the X-Mas paper and stickers :D Perfect timing, of course.

Estivalia said...

Oh no, just paranoia. The guys at Jetpens always pack REALLY well when I order bottles and so far, no casualties
