Journal keeping supplies ...

As mentioned in my last post,
here are a few of my favourite journal keeping supplies. 
Basics ~ scissors, ruler, paper clips, binder clips, washi tape, paper cutter,
lots of pens ... always experimenting with pens. My most recent purchase was "The Seven Year Pen" made in Switzerland in a cheerful Orange colour.
Stamps & stamping ink, tags and labels to write on.
  I love Glue tape - no mess - archival - perfect for adding snips of paper to your journal pages. 
When traveling, I keep a lot of smaller supplies in my Emma Bridgewater pencil case.
My Epson label maker ... I can't recommend this enough!!
I use it for EVERYTHING - it comes with 2 booklets - one instructions on use and the other is filled with all the symbols and frames you can create! Possibilities are endless (as is the fun)!!
when I was gathering supplies to take a photo I smiled when I realized how much was in my favourite colour green :-)
Even my Epson label maker is the perfect colour ♥
wise words from Pablo Picasso I stamped on a little canvas board
when I started painting again.
Green is the prime
colour of the world,
and that from which
its loveliness
arises
~Pedro Calderon de la Barca~

Love seeing all of your supplies Deb!... you got me hooked on the white gel pens a while back!... love all the pretty green, especially your new journal!... I need to pick up a few things for mine... love keeping little bits and bobs as well... this is truly therapy for me, as it relaxes me so to journal... much love, xoxo... Julie Marie PS Where did you get your orange pen from Switzerland?...

Monique ~ you would love this label maker - I create labels for everything with it ... address labels for mailing and Etsy tags, labels for file folders, for my journals, there are so many options for creating designs that it really is endless what you can do.
