I devoted the month of February to creating every day. Sometimes it is coloring, or writing or stamping. Other times it is creating scrapbooking pages and working with my Project Life album. Overall, it has been so nice and happy to get some creating done. It helps with my stress level so much!

I got my first order from JetPens.com and, wow, it is not disappointing.

I picked up a Clairefontaine notebook, it is softcover to my preferred hardcover moleskin with, but I am looking forward to trying it, if only for the paper I have heard amazing things about.

I got some jelly roll pens, not sure if for crafty endeavors or just for some fun, time will tell.
