Leuchttrum Notebook – Red, Dot Grid

At Brush Dance, we’re picky. Picky paper people. Our Weekly Planners, for example, feature luxurious 120 gsm paper that holds up well to most types of pens. We like quality.

Leuchtturm Notebook – Blue, Ruled

Years ago, I tried my first Leuchttrum Notebook and have been using them ever since. I love all of the features – the elastic band, sturdy covers, ribbon markers, numbered pages (!!), and a handy index – but I really love the paper quality. Pencil, pens (including fountain pens), fine liners – nearly every writing instrument works well with these notebooks.

Leuchttrum – Lime Green, Ruled

In carrying these versatile notebooks, we are keeping our promise to you – to only sell you the very best items, items that we ourselves actually use.  At $19.50, these are more expensive than your usual back-to-school notebooks. However, if you are looking for a truly satisfying writing experience, Leuchttrum Notebooks will not disappoint.

Here we are, deep into winter. I hope you’re staying warm. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we don’t get the kind of frigid winter that other parts of the country experience. (I lived in New York for a long time – I get it, I really get it. Slush is serious business, right?)

Less Stress

Today, I’m wishing you less stress. More relaxation. A slower existence – even if just for a little time each day. We give so much of ourselves – work, husbands, wives, partners, children. We simply must take time for ourselves. We must rejuvenate.

I have some go-to stress relieving techniques. Big deeeeeeep breaths and I’ve started meditating this year (I think it’s going to stick this time), and one of my tried-and-true-forever-and-ever stress relievers is to light a candle, put on some gentle music, and climb into a hot bath.

I nearly always bathe right before bed. The coziness of it all puts me in the right frame of mind to fall asleep quickly.

Favorite Things – Bags

Mindful Tote Bag

Now that the new year is well on its way, our focus at Brush Dance turns from calendars and planners to all of the other wonderful items we sell.

I thought I’d share a few of my favorite bags with you today.

Bags. I’m into all of our new, fun bags.  The one shown above is a limited edition collaboration between us and our pals over at Chico Bags. I love this quote, the bright bright orange – our art combined with fabulous Chico Bags and you really can’t go wrong.

Be Bold, or Italic. Never Regular.

We’re all about fonts and typography at Brush Dance. This handy zipper pouch makes me happy. It’s the perfect size to hold some pens and a small notepad. Zip it up, toss in my tote, and I’m ready to go.

And check this out . . .

If you’re planning to order for the holidays (and we hope you are), you’ll want to get on that before the end of this week. Between “interesting” weather patterns this time of year and all of us last minute Santas making delivery people so busy, we can’t promise delivery if your order arrives after this week.

Aquiesse Candles in travel size are terrific for your friends and family members who (like me) need a little spaces of tranquility. With their rich, multi-layered scents and great pricing ($5.99!), these candles cannot be beat. (Travel size shown above. Luxe Tin Shown below.)

Jane Inc bath products are hand-made in the San Francisco Bay Area using 100% pure essential oils. We love them because (just like Brush Dance), they are a small business doing really great things.

A well-curated stocking is a beautiful thing. Little gifts of love for a special person.
