December 28th – Stationery

When you touch the paper, your heart melts. The ink flows from the pen. What was your stationery find of the year?

Ah, stationary, notepads, notebooks, paper, how I adore thee. You are my love, my obsession…no really, this is true. I cannot walk into a store and not look at what notebooks, journals and such that they carry. Some girls have a shoe obsession, instead I have a paper and pen obsession, I am a writer after all.

Did I have a favorite find in 2009 paper-wise? Honestly, I cannot say I did. I still love gel pens when I am hand writing something and not able to simply type into my laptop. And, any good notebook/notepad that is college ruled works well for me. Also, I love legal pads. I must have at least a dozen empty or partially written in notepads all over my room and car. My theory is, you can never have too many writing instruments and writing paper to scribble upon. I mean, when the power goes out and you are sitting there in the dark only illuminated by flashlight or candlelight, you can still write with that pen and paper. Never fails. 🙂

December 27th – Social web moment

Did you meet someone you used to only know from her blog? Did you discover Twitter?

Ha, well I already blogged about twitter in a previous prompt, so it is already known how much I like twitter and that I think it is a great communication and networking tool. As far as who I have met in 2009, I have to say that I met a lot of great folks online, mostly via twitter.

The people that have stood out in my mind are creators. When I say creators, I mean anyone who creates something. Whether they are a writer, photographer, artist or create crafty items, they are all creators. And, all of the creative people I have met online via twitter, facebook, or the like are amazing individuals. The passion these folks have not only in what they create, but for creativity is awesome. That said, I cannot single out just one or even two of these people. I believe they know who they are. I hope to get to be better friends with each one of them in the next year. And, I hope I can add something to their creative endeavors as well, maybe inspire them in some way.
