One of the things I usually do a lot of ,is keeping a journal- it is mainly in black and white but these last months I have not felt much inspired to draw let alone write anything. Rhodia have brought out a new Moleskinesque journal and I must admit I would love to have one of these, because not only do I journal but I am also a bit of a fruitcake about collecting journals and fountain pens. Anyway there is some journals offered as a prize at Black Cover and I can't resist throwing my hat in the ring. As to fountain pens- in France it is possible to buy cheapish fountain pens in the stationery section of supermarkets as the fountain pens are used in schools though that seems to be on the decline ( unfortunately and the selection of fountain pens is dwindling). One of the first things i do when I get to France is go to the supermarket and buy a fountain pen with which to write. I do have several Lamy fountain pens and in the 80's converted quite a number of fellow solicitors at theAustralian Government solicitors office to use Lamy's for writing, but sometimes it is possible to pick up a very nice cheap fountain pen in the supermarket!
Today I have to work on the last project for the Lovely Lutradur book which I am writing with Marion Barnett. We hope to have the cd version out by 1 July- so I had better get a wiggle on.If you would like a copy let me know.The cd will retail for 14 pounds sterling- will have a number of different projects and will have quite a bit of eye candy! I am hoping I can find my foiling glue which is packed away with the rest of my studio stuff in a tent. I can't wait to be able to move all of my stuff into the shed!
