I’m Such a TUL

How does one get energized to edit manuscripts and mark up papers? By treating self to new stationery, of course!

According to stereotype, women supposedly go shopping for clothes or shoes when in need of cheering up.

I go to Office Max/Office Depot/Staples (even Target will do in a pinch) and I look at pens and staples and binders and notebooks… *sigh* Even the smell of paper, plastic, and glue makes my heart flutter.

These are some of the lovely TUL gel pens (retractable brights, medium 0.7 mm tip) that I procured today.


And here’s how one can doodle with them! Awesome, right? These sketches were done with the two pens on the left, pink and green. Obviously, they were the right TULs for the job!



  1. I follow a bunch of office supply sites on Instagram… it’s like stationery porn. I have a JetPens electronic gift card that I’ve been hoarding for special occasions 🙂

    This is a really fun site/idea, if you haven’t seen it. It’s like a sampling of Office-Max-level supplies from around the world: http://radandhungry.com
