what's in my pencil case [tag]

Monday, November 10, 2014


This tag has been floating around the last couple months.  I really thought it'd be fun to do.  I'm working hard on a project [you'll find out soon] that is taking up a lot of my time, and wanted to write an easy fun blog post today.  Tags are great for that.  This tag was originated by Anna Brim, && I give her full credit for coming up with this tag and it's questions.


||1} What pencil case are you using? I am using this owl pencil case by  It's a traditional style pencil case and holds exactly what I need without being too big.  I like to keep it small so I can easily bring it with me when I go out && about.

||2} Why do you use it? Well I think I answered that already, but... I use it because it's compact yet holds everything I need.  Plus it's supah cute!

||3} Where was it from? I picked this up at either WalMart or Target at the end of back to school season.  It was clearanced and I knew I HAD to have it.

||4} Do you carry it out or does it stay home? Both.  I throw it in my bag when I know I'll be doing some work either in my planner or my editorial calendar on the go.  I also use it at home at my desk because it houses all my favorite pens.


||5} Show us what's inside: The above picture is everything that fits into my pencil case.  I have 2 types of post-it flags.  Several hello kitty paperclips. A binder clip. An extra oliblock clip. Extra lead for a pencil. All of my Pilot Frixion pens because they're my most used and favorite.  Pilot Frixion highlighters.  PaperMate flair pens. Several Sharpies. My Hello Kitty coleto style pen. Bic Cristal pens [I love these so much]. A teal LePen pen.

||6} What was in there you forgot about? Uhhh probably the random pens at the top right corner. I never use those.

||7} What is your most used/favorite item? Definitely my Frixion pens.  I've become so dependent on them && the fact that I can erase my work... I'm afraid to use any other pen now.  However, I've gone back through my planner and looked at past pages && the writing is wearing down a little.  I might switch it over to a more permanent ink once I get brave enough.

||8} Now that you have gone through it, what will you leave out? Those random top right corner pens lol.  I don't even know where they came from?

||9} How often do you go through & change things? Not real often because I'm pretty set in my ways.  Those are all hands down my most used pens, so I don't change it up much.  Maybe once I start branching out away from using Frixion pens for everything, I'll change up what's inside.

||10} What are your future plans for your case? New contents? What is on your wish list? Okay to "non-planner" people this question probably seems incredibly ridic && lame... I think it's a good question though.  I haven't thought much about my future plans because this case is working out very well for me. I've had for over a year, carry it every day, and it still looks brand new.  I don't think I'll ever wear it out.  I DO however have a wish list item...


I would love to get my hands on the Kipling 100 pens pencil case. I haven't been able to justify spending $50 on a pencil case for myself though ahah.  I take pride in being a frugal && non-hoarding planner addict.  I work hard at keeping my hobby from taking over my apartment and my bank account.

If any of you do the tag, please leave a link in the comments below so I can read it! <333

    1. Thanks! It was super cheap at like walmart or target! <333

  3. Those random pens are for when someone asks to borrow one. You carry a pencil bag everywhere you go, so they know you have something and they will ask to borrow. In my college classes I was always the person with a pencil sharpener and stapler (in my orange Jonathan Adler pencil bag from Barnes and Noble.) I like to be able to help someone out, but I do NOT want to lose my favorite pens.

    1. Update: I now have the Kipling case! Grabbed it at TJ Maxx for like $16!

  4. So lot to occur over your amazing blog. Your blog procures me a fantastic transaction of enjoyable.. Salubrious lot beside the scene. pencil printing singapore

  5. Awesome, earth is nothing without art. Its really a very interesting hobby. Even capturing a picture or wrapping a gift is also an art. In the summer color type, the degree of contrast of skin and hair tones is of great importance. The lighter the skin and the darker the hair, the more contrast the “summer” will be. Accordingly, three subtypes are distinguished in it - contrast, medium and non-contrast. People of this color type have light brown or ashy hair, gray, green, watery blue or light brown eyes and light skin - grayish or olive, with closely spaced vessels and redness. Calm, muted, soft tones are suitable for people of the summer “suit” - different shades of gray, blue, purple (from light lilac to rich plum) and pink. From jewelry - silver and "dull-pearl" products. Choosing the right art material is also not as easy as we think as i am also searching for a good art supplies online guts(.)pk/shop/category/art-supplies/pencils/ via a stationery store Anyways, thanks for sharing the nice piece of stuff with us.
