Using the most beautiful writing and drawing tools certainly makes journaling all the more satisfying.

The list is endless but here's our top 10
1. AN ON THE GO LEATHER JOTTER

2. PORTABLE BRASS FOUNTAIN PEN
We absolutely love anything brass and this portable brass fountain pen from YStudio is just divine. So absolutely wonderful to write with that we hand write all our personalised postcards for our customers using this.

3. J HERBIN FOUNTAIN PEN INK
Now this is one of the inks that we use regularly in our fountain pens and not only is the ink itself lovely to use, but the packaging is gorgeous. The 1670 range is the one we love which comes in ink bottles that are square with a wax seal on the front. We want to have all of the colours! Totally lusting after more of these to add to the collection, they just look so loverly to look at and use.

4. WAX SEALS
Wax seals are something that is on our own Lust List of stationery goodies to own, we want one with our Indigo Artisans Logo so we can send ya'll a beautifully sealed envelope to open when you receive one of our journals. Artisaire do custom wax stamps so you can design your own. How beautiful are these! They even do one with your pet's photo! Adorable.

5. CUSTOM RAINBOW STITCHED JOURNAL/SKETCHBOOK
Super customised books that have rainbow stitching on the spine but can be made in an array of different colour combos. This one was a custom made in a larger A4 size with 6 different binding thread colours on grey for a super bubbly lady who wanted her journal to reflect her personality. Get yours made in any size and choose from a rainbow of leather and binding thread colours to make it truly one of a kind.

6. WASHI TAPE
We can't believe we're so late to the washi party! Having discovered them though, we seem to prefer the more vintage and retro looking styles at the moment but there are so many washi tape suppliers out there that it can be quite overwhelming.

7. LEATHER PEN WRAP
A pen case that we managed to get at least 30 pens into, and the best bit is that it can be custom made in any size and you can choose from a myriad of leather and thread colours to jazz it up if you so wish.
