KUM pocket scissors

Kum Pen-style Scissors are the coolest little invention. Pop the cap to reveal the scissor points and then push the black sliders too create handles and voila! pocketable scissors that take up no more space than a Sharpie. Kum is known for the quality of the pencil sharpeners so I knew the blades of these scissors would be sharp and precise and I was not wrong. Well worth the investment, just don’t forget they are in your bag before you get to the airport.

Journaling Arts

Journaling Arts is a great resource for all sorts of journals and planners. Their shop is organized by type of book: writing, art, travel, planners and more. I especially like the category for Journals for Fountain Pens. You can also search by brand and Journaling Arts stocks a dizzying selection of Moleskine products. Journaling Arts also keeps a blog which is a good resource for detailed product information and techniques for creative journaling.
