Friday: Pens & Markers

Because I'm using a laptop most of the time doesn't mean I don't write «by hand» anymore, on the contrary. I have an impressive amount of notebooks in which I write all sorts of things. For work, my notebook is a real mess, hurray!*

To make my notebooks (and my little messages & post-its) more attracting, I use different colors of pens. I also use markers for a change. I like the splashes of color, the energy it gives, the happiness that results from the writing, it shows a little who I am and it feels good.

So for this last day of green week (thanks Emily for the great idea), here are my green pens and markers on polka dot paper. Polka dot is another of my passions, one day, maybe, we'll do the polka dot week...

*In general I am a neat freak, but I'm healing from it little by little, learning to let go, that's the reason for the «hurray».

i, too, am a recovering neat freak. it just became impossible to uphold when i started living with the then hubby-to-be (who is the opposite of neat freak) so many years ago.

Ani,
Have you bought W«reck this journal» by Keri Smith? It's the best medicine ever (and fun!).

I have a thing for colors. Couldn't live without them. And I love changing. Often. How unstable... Hum, I mean, how fun!
