  1. I’m gonna get a little printer (Fujifilm Sp-1) that can do instant prints from my phone. Looking forward to an easier way to add pics to my journal!

        Liz, thank you for the great idea, it is just what I needed to inspire more journaling( or at least to start) It was lovely meeting you live at the letter writing club. We didn’t get a chance for a proper introduction ( you helped me with the sealing wax) ,so let me introduce myself, I am Cricita and I thouroughly enjoy reading your posts. I know I have an instant camera tucked away some where, you have inspired me to pull it out and begin photoing today😀

        • I’m so glad you found the post helpful! And I’m also so glad you were able to make it on Sunday – it was nice to meet you, and to write letters next to you 🙂
          Thanks so much for reading and following along with the blog! I hope you find your camera, and also a bit of inspiration for your journaling 🙂

  2. Thanks for another lovely blog update, Liz! Loving following along with your shop and adorable family (and paper and pens and washi tape…) This is my second year keeping some amalgam of the bullet and hobonichi journalling systems, and you have sold me on incorporating instax photos. I purchased one of the fuji printers Janet mentioned above. It’s not as instant as your click and print camera, but I’m a professional graphic designer and it allows me some of the control I need like cropping or a little bit of image color adjustment. Looking forward to seeing more of your photos and washi tape and beautiful handwriting in 2016!

    • Thanks so much for reading and following along and taking the time to comment! I’m so glad you are enjoying the blog. I am also trying to convince Jon I need a printer for phone photos …I was thinking more that it would be nice to have the sticky backing and also a thinner photo, but the editing might also be really helpful! I’m looking forward to another year of writing and blogging, and hopefully I can convince Jon I also need some more washi tape 🙂

    Groan – just when I think I own every fountain pen I could ever conceivably want, another “must have” comes along. This baby is now on my wish list. I need to start saving up my pocket money again, having just spent it all on the Edison Collier (which I’m really looking forward to).

    • Oh, Ruth! Haha 🙂 You are too funny. I hope you enjoy your Edison – I packed it up myself!! 🙂 And maybe one day to enjoy some instant photos, too!

    • Yes, I’d also like to get one of the phone printers, too, especially since some print with a sticky back! I think they’d be thinner than the Instax I already have. Thanks for reading, and taking the time to comment! 🙂

    Love this idea! You have me coveting an Instax camera now, even though I already have a Polaroid Zip printer and Canon Selphy printer. Those old fashioned Polaroid-style photos have so much character. Like old fashioned pens! 😀

    • I have been doing the opposite – haha! I’ve been trying to convince Jon I need one of the Zip printers so I can print them out and stick them in. The Instax is a bit too thick to go into the Hobonichi, and it would be nice to just stick it in. We’ll see! 🙂

      Sure will do! I am actually planning on getting one, probably in the next few weeks, so I will keep you updated!

    Sublime idea. I’m now in my 10 month of using an instant camera. OK, not everyday, but 2 or 3 times a week. I prefer the little Polaroid. Have to order it on-line from the U.S. My journal is like my old photo albums from when I was a kid—but much enhanced with the addition of lots of words, or little articles glued in (like my free upgrade ticket for an airline this summer!).

      2 or 3 times a week is great! I love the idea of the old photo albums, and being able to look through it, and of course having the stories to remind you of the little details makes it even better. So glad to hear it sounds like you’re enjoying it!

    Everyone needs more washi tape. Especially you! How else would we learn about these great things?

    And, thanks for writing about the Instax camera and including your photos in the blog posts. Thanks to you, i finally bought an instax. There’s a htbrid model now that makes square photos ! 😀
