Goodbye, April. Hello, May!
Episode 28: Clips, Tacks and Kraft Paperbacks | The Erasable Podcast
The latest Erasable episode features an interview with Bryan Bedell of Field Notes. A must listen for any Field Notes fan. One of my favorite parts was Mr. Bedell saying he carried Shelterwood in his pocket for a few months to test out the cover's durability. How awesome is that?
The Pen Addict #152: A Hot Mess of a Pencil - Relay FM
An episode all about mechanical pencils! I know most of the mechanical pencils I've used in the past are pretty basic and on the juvenile side, so if I ever want to upgrade, I'll be sure to revisit this episode.
The Original Field Notes — The Finer Point
I spend a lot more time focusing on the Field Notes Colors here, but I really like the Original kraft Field Notes, too. They are as versatile and fuss-free as Field Notes will ever get.
Delfonics x 60 years with Miffy
In celebration of the 60th anniversary of Miffy, Delfonics made special Rollbahn notebooks with various Miffy designs on the cover. SO CUTE. I did not grow up reading Miffy books but I find the characters really endearing. I remember catching the animated show on TV while traveling in Japan and just being glued to it like a kindergartener. Heh. Of course, it seems these Rollbahn notebooks (which I really like btw) are only available in the retail heaven that is Japan. But it's still fun to see (read: drool on) them on Instagram. If you’re in Tokyo, you might want to check out a wide range of Miffy goods at Matsuya Ginza department store before May 10, 2015.
MAKI TACKS - Fred & Friends
I saw this sushi-looking set of push pins and thought it was funny.

Aaron Draplin at HOW Design Live again! This may be an old link but I just found out about it, and the collaboration sounds neat. Watch the video here, too, for more Draplin fun.
13 Amazing Female Podcasters to Follow | Design*Sponge
I started listening to Rocket at Relay.fm recently and have been thinking I need to listen to more female-centric podcasts. This looks like a great place to start.
DIY Pretzel Pillow | Studio DIY®
Well, folks, I've really done it this time. I shamefully admit, I missed the National Pretzel Day on April 26th. 😭 Maybe making this pillow will do it justice.
