This is not my first post about carrying my supplies on the go… nor will it be my last I’m sure. But this is what is currently working for me.
I purchased this case after months of drooling over Kara’s (@bohoberry). She has the green one, but I chose to go with black – as I just have a thing for black.
This case is great. And the perfect size for carrying the essentials. I have a Kipling 100 pen Case (in bright yellow I might add) that I LOVE! But it really is big and bulky and so hard to carry around places. Plus that usually gets me some serious stares when I pull it out…
So anyways, right now my case is all prepped for the things I’m using to set up my new BuJo that I’ll begin on September 1. September is my favorite, as is fall, so most of my colored pens and markers are reflecting that.
The mesh zipper pocket houses some ink cartridges for my Pilot Metropolitans (the grey and green pens in the pen slots) plus a few extra standard cartridges that work with my Nemosine Singularity Demonstrator fountain pen (hidden below with all the other pens.) Although that pen is filled with bottled ink, I hate to carry the bottles around, so I carry a few cartridges just in case I run out in a pinch. In the Velcro pocket below the mesh pocket, I carry a Bic White-Out Mini.
I keep my fountain pens (all but the Nemosine Singularity Demonstrator) in the pen slots in the case. My hope is to invest in a Chic Sparrow Odyssey TN cover soon, which has a pen loop where I’ll likely keep the Nemosine pen. For now I’m using the TN cover that I made myself, but I can’t decide on a pen loop option that I like for the system, so I currently have none.
(Check out the DIY post on how I made my TN Cover here. And an update on how I’m now using the system here.)
Then below that flip pen slot section, is where the good colors are!!
I recently invested (the whole $6.99 cost) in a set of 50 Crayola Super-Tips. #bestdecisionever. I love these markers. Don’t get me wrong – I love the Tombows and the Staedtler Triplus Fineliners too, but I have this thing about the tips of my markers and the fineliners get flattened all too quickly. And the expense of the Tombows just isn’t something I want to invest in all the time for the colors I want.
When I got the Crayola Super-Tips, I numbered each of the markers on the white bottom since none of the colors have names on the marker itself! This way I could easily tell which color was which.
I also carry a stencil for my weather icons that I use on my daily entries, plus a set of Artist’s Loft Illistration pens.
I’m pretty excited to share with you some things that will be coming up in the next few weeks on my blog! So make sure to stay tuned and subscribe so you don’t miss any of my adventures!
