Carnival of Pen, Pencil & Paper – December

It’s time once again for the Carnival of Pen, Pencil and Paper. If you’re new to the Carnival, it’s a gathering of some great blog posts from around the web.

All posts embrace the legacy of the printed word. I’m excited to host this month’s extravaganza. There’s a few real gems for your reading pleasure! The round-up is below.

Editor’s picks

Here are a couple of my favorites from this month’s submissions:

Julie (Okami) has a fabulous review of the Ecosystem Artist Journal posted at Whatever. The review features lots of photographs and observations about this beautiful journal. You’ll definitely want to spend some time at Julie’s site if you’re into stationery and writing utensils. She’s got a treasure trove of blog posts on all things written. I’ve lost many an hour on that site!

Cynthia at Journaling Arts has an in-depth review of the Leuchtturms 2011 Master Book Daily Planner. It’s hard to believe, but it definitely is time to start looking at planners for the new year.

Nifty posted a great Blackwell Notebook Review over at Notebook Stories. Nifty’s journal reviews are always fabulous with demonstrations of how different pens behave on the paper and other essential information for notebook lovers.


Halden presents Waterman Havana posted at Writing and Scribbling.

David Garrett presents ink review: noodler’s black swan in australian roses posted at seize the dave.

Cheryl presents Ink Mixing With J. Herbin 1670 Anniversary Ink posted at Writer’s Bloc Blog.


Clement Dionglay presents Notebook Review: Flower Wow by Daycraft posted at href=”http://archer-rantings.blogspot.com/” target=”_blank”>Rants of The Archer.


Keith Harris presents The End of the Colored Pencil posted at Penned House.

DianeB presents Monteverde Invincia Color Fusion Fountain Pen posted at Pocket Blonde.

Julie Bestry presents A Day of Fun Alternatives to Paper posted at Paper Doll, Tackling The Stacks And Piles (I really love the pen kit for creating a “To Do” list on your hand!)

  1. Loved this carnival – I went from link to link and discovered a passel of inks (and maybe pens) I’m dying to get. Fortunately I’ll have Christmas money!!!
