John BosleyMiscellaneous Leave a Comment

Here’s a quick roundup of new giveaways, deals, reads, images and a bit of what I’m loving for the week of August 5, 2019.


– Monteverde is giving away a set of their new Sweet Life inks on Instagram.
– Do you bullet journal? The Bullet Journal Method is giving away some special notebooks to celebrate 6 years.


All pricing was accurate at the time of this post, but may have changed, so be sure to check the price before purchasing. As always, only purchase items from trusted sellers.

– Pick up a bottle or two of Iroshizuku ink for around $15: Take-sumi, Yama-budo
– I don’t know what it normally sells for, but this is a pretty good deal on a pack of Tomoe River paper. You can read my review of it if you haven’t already.

Interesting Reads and Images

– Any time I see vintage ink make an appearance, I’m happy. Check out Anderson Pens’ review of Skrip Washable Blue.
– The Gentleman Stationer has a nice recap of the D.C. Pen Show.

What I’m Loving

– I’m not one to be out and about with friends all the time, but this past week I went out for beers with two different friends and had a really good time!
– I’ve taken some time for myself this week and written to pen pals, doodled and relaxed a bit. It’s been great!
