    So, as some friends may tell you, I have a deep love of art supplies and stationery. Do I use all of it? No. Do I hoard it like a dragon, saving it for just the right time? Yes. Do I pine for pieces I probably have no use for because I love their aesthetic appeal?

    HELL YES.

    Sometimes the project journey isn't the only highlight. Sometimes you get hold of something and just go "Oooooh" at it. Sometimes there's something shiny on a shelf you shouldn't buy, can't afford, but will ogle for as long as socially acceptable any time you're in the vicinity like a happy chimp getting enrichment and let it languish in your online order basket for months on end in the hopes that someday, Someday, the shiny will be yours. That's what this place is for.

    This is the place to blather about those supplies you hold so dear to your heart! Got a note taking technique that uses special pens that make your heart flutter? GO OFF ABOUT IT. Find that sexy new knitting supply that's almost too special to actually use? HELL YEAH. New leather punch? New socket wrench? New wax blend? New gizmo that you're not even sure what it does but it's sexy and it's YOURS? FUCK YEAH MAN SHOW THE CLASS.

    For instance: most of the items at Stationery Pal are not only really affordable but Very Useful and I am going to invest in some when I can.

    it's
    pretty color
    I bet it'd be a smooth write, Hnghh.

    Yes hello I have a love of stationary and I recently got some Pilot frixion pens and also a highlighter and I am completely obsessed with them. I have waited my entire life for a pen that can erase well ;u; Sadly if you use the highlighter over the pen the ink does move around a little, but worth it!!

    BEHOLD, my favorite pen for writing! It's a Sakura Pigma Micron PN--the tip is plastic, and it writes soooooo smoothly. (I have one in black too, but obviously the purble one is my fave.)

    EDIT: ALSO I just bought a couple of those pencils @TheMockingCrows *u* I got a purble one and a pink one, I've been needing a good mechanical pencil or two so thank you for the link!!

    Lately I've been stalking a lot of studyblr and studygram accounts for their really nice setups, everything they do seems to be so pretty?
    it's also led to some major stationery envy im ngl
    especially the ones that use stamps
    it led to a half hour long discussion about what kind of stamps my friend should get for her farm xD

    Do any of you have a favorite studyblr or studygram account? (I also use Study With Me's on youtube during schooltime, to help focus, but that's less focusing on the aesthetics and more focusing on the sounds)

    I love black pens that write smoothly, it fucks me up when the ink shutters out for an instant and I have to draw over the letter to make it show up properly and you can tell it's been redone and IT UPSETS. ME. I haven't written in a while because I've had a lack of good pens

    I've been using pencil but graphite isn't the SAME and it smudges and it isn't as bold and I dislike it
