Hey everone! Welcome to another Friday Free-For-All!
Today, I must take some time to absolutely rave about something I happened upon second-handedly on Twitter!
John Gruber of Daring Fireball recently tweeted about a small stationery shop called JetPens. This is where I found these AWESOME Mono erasers. I picked up a Tombow Mono Zero Eraser - 2.3 mm - Circle, Tombow Mono Zero Eraser - 2.5 mm x 5 mm - Rectangle and a Tombow Mono One Mini Twist Eraser
Okay, anyone who knows me KNOWS I'm a sucker for all things cool when it comes to stationery... and this store is like my accessible version of Kinokuniya. The second I found out about these erasers, I immediately put them into my virtual shopping cart.
Mono erasers are by far a must-have in my pencil bag, on my desk, in my purse. I found out about them when I was in middle school and have made it a point to always have at least one readily available at all times. I haven't come across another eraser that scrubs my paper as clean.
Anyhoo~ what makes these cool is:
- they're click style erasers,
- they fit nicely in my bag, and
- they are so skinny!
It makes erasing super fine areas so much easier! I just have to be careful how hard I press down so I don't break the tips.
Along with my erasers, I also purchased a couple other items: Liliputian sized correction tape pen (complete with lanyard cord), a mini fountain pen, a Dr. Grip "shakey" mechanical/sharp pencil, a folded leather pencil case, and a couple inking pens for KS. (The pink bear is something I got in Japan with an energy drink a handful of years back.)
The best part of the whole thing? I just put the order in on Wednesday afternoon and got my order in the mail just yesterday! I was stunned I got the order so quickly!
They also have a free shipping promotion for orders over $25, which is awesome incentive~! Yayness!
So, what's your favorite stationery item that you MUST use? :D Please do share!!
Full disclosure: Clicking on any of the links to JetPens and purchasing stuff helps nemu*nemu.com!
Enjoy the weekend everyone! Strips should be starting up again next week!
P.S. Thanks for the correction~! It's "stationery", not "stationary"!
