Link Love: Lego My Typewriter

The weeks surrounding the Independence Day holiday are usually pretty quiet in the pen community. Bloggers take a much-deserved week off and all our fine compatriots are busy tending to mosquitos bites and making copious quantities of iced tea and lemonade to stay cool. This will all change in a couple weeks when August can be seen on the horizon and plans to get kids back-to-school and adults start focusing on the fourth quarter which is when we see a surge of new supplies, inks, planners and preparations for the holiday season.

I don’t mean to sound jaded and I’m not. Back-to-school is my favorite holiday. I’m sure you’ll agree there is nothing more full of potential and optimism than a new notebook or brand new package of pencils or crayons.

Last week, we posted about the Clutterbug organizational system and how it might be applied to planning. So, if you too, are raring to get “back-to-school” this is a great time to consider which planner or planning style might work best for you so that when new 2021/2022 planners are released, you know what to look for.

In other news, Tina appeared on an episode of Art Supply Posse this month. Robert Oster is celebrating FIVE YEARS of making awesome inks (he is THE man for blues!). The USPS is celebrating 50 years as an independent agency. The Pen Addict reviewed the Platinum Procyon and came to similar conclusions that I did. The Typewriter Revolution reviewed the Lego Typewriter. And we’d like to introduce you to a new pen-related blog: A Stationery Voyage. (Never fear, the requisite cat and Star Wars posts are included. Hope you love them!)

Have a great (short) week!

Oh, one more thing… the Independence Day weekend was also our Ollie-versary. It’s been one year since this giant ginger cat showed up on our porch and stole our hearts.
