More of the Lihit Lab Teffa case. This thing is amazing! At $17 USD it’s quite pricy for me, but I never buy anything nice for myself and I have a debilitating pen addiction so I’ll allow it. Some details in case you’re thinking about getting one:

The material and stitching seem sturdy. The zippers feel like metal, not the kind of lightweight plastic you find on lots of things. They’re also very quiet, so no loud noises if you’re in the library/class and need to get something.

It’s big enough to hold lots of pens without straining, way more than I showed in the pic.

The pen straps are big enough to allow for thicker pens. That means thinner pens like stabilo point .88s will roll around a bit, but they won’t fall out.

The mesh pockets on the left are pretty tight; the band is not elastic and doesn’t have much give. That means nothing falls out (I even tested it by shaking the case around) but thicker stuff may be a tight fit. The large pocket on the right is much looser though, it’s actually designed to fit a small notebook and lots of other large things.

I am way to happy about a dang pen case, I have problems. Office supply problems. ;3;

It’s only natural to be happy! We don’t see any problems with that. :)

My ancient pencil case finally died, so I bought some stuff at Jetpens for the new semester! That site is dangerous but I managed to not throw my whole paycheck at them.
Lihit Lab Teffa Case (holds a ton of pens without being huge, and seems to be quite sturdy)
Preppy Fountain Pen (my first fountain pen, great if you’re left handed since the ink dries super fast)
Kuru Toga Mechanical Pencil (the lead turns as you write so it doesn’t get flat on one side that is AWESOME how could I not buy that)
Stein 0.5 lead
Ain Black Eraser
Everything works great, I recommend all of it; and except for the case nothing is more than a few dollars bc I am cheap as balls.

Great haul!

the night is lit up by thorns, and the thunder
of leaves, once so quiet within the bushes
rumbling at our heels.”

J. Herbin’s Bouquet D’antan and Tomoe River paper from @jetpens, camellias from my backyard. Loving the way this ink dries to a lovely soft, dusty pink that’s perfect for pointed pen poetry.

This is beyond gorgeous. Swoon!
