Let's start the June 2011 Stationery Giveaway with this awesome SRX Galaxie Fountain Pen, bottle of Chesterfield Ink and a package of ink cartridges all from a new sponsor, Xfountain Pens. It's not often that we have a fountain pen and ink to include in our monthly drawing, so this just adds to an already great giveaway! The fine folks at xFountain Pens were also kind enough to include an extra set for us to try, so I will be having a review on this exact pen and ink later in the month.
Revolver Bound Books is actually two journals in one. You see the red journal in the photo, but if you open it up a special way and then fold back the red covers, you will reveal a second journal that has a black cover. One of the journals has blank pages and other has lined (64 pages each).You can see a video on their website of exactly how this works.
"Two journals in one with a little magic in between."Peter Pauper Press so I sent her to their website where you can find lovely designs just like the one pictured below for $9.95 (30 sheets + 24 envelopes). I love this set!
Texas Pen Company donated a box calligraphy set containing 2 Scheaffer Fountain Pens, 3 calligraphy nibs, 14 ink cartridges, a practice pad and calligraphy booklet with step-by-step instructions. WOW! That is a lot. Sometime in June we will also be giving away one of these sets in a drawing on our Facebook page.
Papaya Arts has been a long time donor to the monthly giveaway. This hard cover journal is just "write" for starting a diary or daily writing journal.

Book Journals, have submitted another of their unique books made from an actual book that they turned into a journal by adding 75 blank pages of acid free paper and rebinding the book with spiral binding. Each of these books is unique and for an added touch they have left a few of the original pages from the book interspersed among the blank pages. If you see one you like on their site, GET IT! As once they are gone, they most likely will not have it again.
Parker Planner is that they come undated so that you can plan and use your planner for any four months that work for you. The planners were created by Ethan and Benjie when they were in college and were looking for a planner to fit their needs. Not finding one, they created their own. I met them at the National Stationery Show this year and they were nice enough to send me home with some of these wonderful little planners.
And, is that pink Pentel pencil in the photo also part of the stationery giveaway? Why, yes it is! Thanks to Pentel and Julie at Whatever, where I was lucky enough to win more than a handful of Pentel products. So I am spreading the joy (and pencils.)Survival by Design who just announced that some of their product line is now in the Target stores.
