I hit up Hobby Lobby when they had their paper crafting merchandise on sale for 50% off and I used my Savings Catcher funds from Walmart to buy myself stickers. Lots of fun new things for Erica with minimum out-of-pocket spending. This works for me.
From January 2016 through May 2016 I was writing in a beautiful journal from Code & Quill. Since I had the notebook off my shelf for unrelated reasons, I thought that I might as well do another flip through of it, especially since my set-up is much better than the last time I attempted a Code & Quill flip through video.
Join me as I drink my morning coffee and talk about my most recently filled journal (my foxy journal) and a couple of other random things I have been wanting to show you.
I don’t think the freebie promotion is going on anymore but Fat Head is the site that I got my emoji stickers from. If you find a link for a free emoji sticker, please let me know and I will update this so other people can get the stickers.
Thank you to my new friends at WellInkedBox for letting me try out their subscription service. It arrived quickly, it was packaged beautifully and I am so excited to try out the products that came inside. Please continue reading this blog post for more information about each of the products (from the cardstock included in the package) in the order that I talked about them in this video.
EDIT: a note from John of Lemur Ink slipped out of the packaging when I was tossing it in the trash just now- this is INDEED a fine tipped nib (instead of extra fine, but I think I may have messed this up in my video ANYWAY). So I’m really glad I got the fine- the XF would have been WAY too tiny for my preference. Thanks for reading my update. 🙂
I recorded a quick video update today to let you know that I met my goal of completing my Foxy journal in time for my birthday. Today I am starting my Positive Thoughts journal by Eccolo* (*this is normally where I would link you to where you can purchase the same journal, but for the love of all that is good I cannot find to order online*) while drinking all the coffee I can suck down. I hope everyone reading this has an amazing day.
I woke up early this morning and drank a pot of coffee before anyone else stirred (well, except for maybe my sleepy companion, Hera). In this video, I talk a little bit about my current journal, which journal I may use next, and also a bit about the future of The Nerd Journals blog and YouTube channel. Thanks for joining me for a chat, my friends.
I first discovered the Human Era calendar in December 2016 from the YouTube channel Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell. The idea of adding ten thousand years to our calendar to acknowledge how far humankind had come truly resonated with me. To pay my respects to my ancestors who hunted and gathered their way to developed agriculture and buildings is important to me, so I respect them every day when I write in my journal and begin the year date with a one. I recommend checking out the video below for more information.
