It’s a funny thing, having nothing to write a blog post about, knowing it doesn’t matter, that it’s counter-productive to force it, but not quite being able to set aside the desire to write.
I’ve been trying to decide which ink I should use on my main planner pages throughout March which is the month I’ve allocated to these oh-so-pretty stickers by Note & Wish, one of my birthday gifts. The hopeful, spring-like flower sprigs, together with cosy winter knits, and a decidedly foggy colour palette, seem fitting for March – the month that can never decide which season it truly belongs to.
I think the Lamy Benitoite is close to perfect this time. Whilst it is never the colour I want it to be, it is just muted enough to work with the various shades in the stickers. I would be lying if I said I hadn’t looked at other ink options and if I wanted to buy another ink I could, I think, have come closer to my vision. Yet shopping my existing inks has given me more pleasure and saved me money; lots of money, actually, as the shades I liked were all from the most expensive brands.
It’s a bit of a shame I’m ready for March now, because we’re only halfway through February.
