Hey, welcome to my very first blog post on the ximenadesigns blog! My name is Emma and I hope you're all doing well. Today I’ll be writing about my favorite note-taking supplies. And if you have a bad addiction to collecting pens and stationary like me, this blog post is for you...
Crayola super tips are one of my favorite note-taking supplies because it’s an affordable way to do calligraphy. The tip of the super tip works as good as a Tombow dual brush pen but it is a lot easier to control because of the smaller tip. You could get a great number of super tips for the cost of a 4 pack Tombow dual brush pens!
The pentel energel pen is one of my favorite black ink pens because it writes so smoothly and the ink is really strong, for a single pen it could cost about $1.29, and for a pack of 5 at Staples it would cost $5.99. For the same exact price, you could buy one with a needlepoint if you want to write smaller and cleaner. Also if you are in love as much as I am with this pen you could buy some refills once you run out on amazon. They are such amazing basic pens!
OMG, the Tombow fudenosuke brush pen is one of my favorite brush pens. Not only are they affordable they are also so easy to control and aren't as hard as a Tombow dual brush pen. When starting calligraphy for the first time this is my first recommendation. At Walmart and Target, you could get these for about $5.99 but at Michaels, they are $9.99.
Zebra Mildliner Highlighters www.amazon.com/Zebra-Pen-Mildliner-Highlighter-Assorted/dp/B0752WWCTNare great for doing headings. I use this for highlighting, my headings, and extra doodles. They are a little on the pricey side but they are SO worth it! They come in over 30 colors. The cost for 5 is $9 and a pack of 15 for $15.99. You could find more on Amazon and Michaels.
Lastly, I love graph paper because it helps my notes be more organized and more put together. Graph paper also helps keeps my handwriting straighter then going at an angle. I got five-star loose graph paper it cost me $5 for 100 sheets. I recommend getting a five-star because the quality is amazing and it has this protected layer at the margin that helps it not get ripped.
That is all for this week’s blog post. I hoped you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it! Make sure to, sign up for the email club to get notified when the next blog post comes out! See you guys soon, Emma
