I am so geeked! I get to be one of the bloggers that Karen from Exaclair gave two of the new Webbies to. I have one FOR ME and one to give away FOR YOU!! Sorry, I’ll try to stay calm.
I have plans to do a review soon but I want to spend some time with both the Webbie and the ePure. I’m gonna do reviews of both of them and then have the giveaway. Oh, you probably want details. I am really a fan of the Rhodia Orange. In this case, both Webbies are large, blank, and orange.
You’ll have to wait until the weekend for more. Stay tuned…
Here’s where we get to the ranting. I had a journal. A lovely journal with lovely paper and excellent binding. It was from Paperchase and has since gone missing. So I did the reasonable, rational thing and went to get another one. Only another one wasn’t available that was just like the one I had. So I picked up one with a similar format with a different cover. Makes sense, right?
Except this one has a terrible binding. I didn’t bother to check but the first couple pages are stuck together. And, the paper isn’t lovely. It feathers something awful. Oh, and the pages don’t open flat. I don’t know why I was so surprised. I don’t think I’ll be continuing with this journal.
The question now is which journal to pick up? I have some plain journals like a Rhodia Webbie and a Rhodia A6 Pure but both of those have blank pages and I like lines for long term journalling. I have a Habana but that book seems thin. I just feel like I’d run out of pages in a month or so. I prefer to have a good chunk of my life in one place.
I live in a small town so I can’t just run out and get something amazing and I’m fairly picky about what I write on (and with). I don’t have plans to go to a big city until the holidays which is just too far away to wait for. However, if anyone knows of great pen/paper/ink stores in Orlando, Charlotte, or Houston then please let me know…
Looking for a lined journal with lots of pages, high quality paper, and a binding that lays flat. Bonus if it doesn’t say “Journal” on the front.
