Friday review roundup

If winter’s gray skies are giving you the blues, check out this colorful review from California, where Erin of La Plume Etoile tries out J. Herbin’s pearlescent inks.

I really enjoyed testing these inks and plan to use them for special occasion items such as when writing someone a special card… If you are interested in them, I would recommend giving them a chance and playing with the right nib and paper combinations.

Meanwhile, it’s not surprising that you’d say nice things about a company that gave you a prize (which is not to say we expect our own contest winners to rave about their loot if they don’t like it!) but I enjoyed reading this blurb about a UK contest winner all the same. Her name is Sheila English, and she won something we don’t make — an iPhone. Here’s what she had to say about the pleasingly named Europa Minor notepad she bought when she entered the contest:

I am always making notes and was looking for something that I could easily carry in my handbag, and the Europa Minor Pad was an ideal size (plus came in purple, my favourite colour!)

(Europa Minor is a notebook by Tollit and Harvey, an Exacompta subsidiary whose products we don’t import in the US.)
