Is there something that you prefer to work with?? I am thinking of fountain pen, colored ink, gel pens... what have you. I prefer to write my notes with a mechanical pencil. I just like how it feels. The words just seem to flow! How about you. Do you love to wander the aisles of Staples or another paper store?? If someone bought all of my stocking stuffers from such a store, I would be in heaven!
