Stocking Stuffers

In addition to all of our wonderful Calendars and Planners, we also have a huge assortment of Stocking Stuffers that are perfectly priced for your holiday shopping budget.  Let’s explore . . .

 

We love this collection of Everyday Bravery enamel pins from Emily McDowell Studios. Finally, recognition for the things in our daily lives that require courage.  Maybe we should all get one of these as a reminder that we don’t have to please everyone?

 

Activist-Enamel-Pin__90685.1510078432.500.500Speaking of pins, ACTIVIST is one of my favorites from Seltzer Goods (a brand that is new to Brush Dance). Get one for yourself and one for your BFF because you know you’re on the right side of history.

Think you know your friends and family members?  Avoid those awkward silent moments by bringing out a box of 135 questions to keep the conversation going. There’s a Family Edition for all ages, and a Do It Yourself Therapy set for the brave among us. See all Table Topics (we’ve listed some sample questions – making it easier to choose the perfect set for you).

Coffee!

We have a small assortment of really fun keytags.  Here’s one for the mom in your life.

We are absolutely wild about these reusable bags from LOQI.  Artful, fun, practical, and handy! This one is my favorite – or maybe it’s this one?

 

Thank you for shopping with Brush Dance – we appreciate you and your business.

Please order soon if you have your eye on one of these amazing candles. Not only are they soy-based with a lead-free wick, they also come in an insanely beautiful gift box, and burn for more than 100 hours.  We are definitely fans.

Lihit Lab – Compact Pen Case

I’m so happy to share with you today that Brush Dance now has Lihit Lab pen cases and notebook/planner covers in stock and ready to ship!

Lihit Lab – Compact Pen Case

Lihit Lab is a popular Japanese brand that I’ve used for years. And as you know, at Brush Dance, we are only committed to selling items that we actually use and love.

Lihit Lab – B5 Notebook Cover

My first experience with Lihit Lab was the B5 Notebook Cover (shown above and below). I loved it so much that I bought one for everyone at Brush Dance.

Here’s some of what I love about these covers:

Durability – made with Cordura canvas, this cover is made to last. After more than three years of daily use, mine (in navy blue) looks brand new.

Pockets! OMG with the pockets!

The large front velcro-type closed pocket is large and deep enough to hold a variety of items. Right now, I have a pencil, eraser, and ruler in mine and there’s still plennnnty of room for more.

The front also features two pen holder pockets.  These pockets are large enough to contain nearly any writing instrument.  There’s also a “slip-in” pocket on the front cover to hold a few sheets of folded paper – I keep bills that I need to pay in there.

Once inside, there are even more pockets.  On the inside front cover, there are three additional slip-in pockets. These are smaller than the one on the front and will easily accommodate planning stickers, credit cards, a few folded up dollar bills, or paper clips. And, finally, the inside back cover features a flap where I tuck important papers and larger sticker sheets.

Bookmarks – two satin ribbon bookmarks in different colors – so handy!

Room For It All – Right now, I have just one B5 Leuchtturm notebook in mine, but in the past, I’ve had two with no problem.  And here’s what I’m most excited about:

Lihit_Lab_Smart_Fit_Notebook_Cover_B5_Navy_5__33072.1500908689.1280.1280

Our brand new Karma Planners fit perfectly into this Notebook Cover.  Karma Planners begin with weekly spreads starting in November 2017 – and I can’t wait!! I’m planning to start filling in important dates very soon.

Lihit Lab A5 Notebook Cover

 

The A5 Notebook Cover (shown above) has all of the same great features as the B5 shown above – just in a more compact size.  This one is compatible with the Leuchtturm A5 Notebooks that are so popular for bullet journaling.

Need a little more color in your life?
