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.
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.
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.
We’re carrying the popular “medium” size (A5) in a variety of colors. We have them lined and with dot grid paper. Check Them Out Here.
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?)
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.
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.
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 . . .
Here are a couple of other smaller pouches that I adore . . .
We truly have a bag for everyone – big, small, plain, funny, small, girly, cute, serious. I hope you’ll love them, too!
Here we are already – the middle of December. Christmas and Hanukkah will be here before we know it.
Some of us here have finished our shopping and are waiting for the big day. Others are still working their lists.
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.
We have mindful gifts ready to ship today for everyone on your list.
We recently received a huge order of Leuchttrum Journals. This red one has been selling out all over the place. Perfect for notes, bullet journals, or list making. (Get one for yourself, too.)
And finally, if you’re looking for fun hostess gifts? We’ve got your back.
Brush Dance Weekly Planners are the perfect gift for the organized list-making person in your life. With more than a dozen styles, there is truly something for everyone.
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.)
