    Things I Bought Saturday... Woohoo!

    They're not posted on the Accessories page yet, but Katy dug up some brand new Cayenne and Wasabi 16" Key Straps for me.

    That Wasabi strap really means I can't misplace my keys in the dark!

    To be very honest, I dithered between the Conifer, Olive, and Plum Field Journals, but ended up getting the Plum because I already had the Plum Key Straps. This choice surprised me, since I an a 'blue-buying' woman. The Navy Journal, while nice, just wasn't exciting enough to end up in my clutches, and I just didn't want plain old Olive. Since I'm a writer, if I am without my computer now I can honestly state I am producing 'purple prose.'

    I now make a humble request: how about Conifer and Sapphire Key Straps? Either or both lengths?

    And, after nearly two days of searching, I'd like to second another poster's request in the Field Journal threads: a custom portable 3-hole punch for the Journal. The ones on the market are plastic and/or junk; I have a very old steel can-be-carried-in-a-Filofax punch that will line up, but those who don't have 25 year old stuff have no options. Single-hole punching 3 holes into 200 sheets of 140 lb watercolor paper would get v e r y tedious!

    I'd also like to see a narrow-ruled paper choice; a paper made with double-sided narrow ruled is available at Fred Meyers, but not in recycled paper. I can use college-ruled, and got that with the Journal as well as the Crane plain paper, but narrower ruled lines would save paper even more.

    Sorry to Katy if I just got her in trouble for jumping the gun... bet she felt the ground shake during the 4th quarter of the Seahawks game, since the store is less than a mile south of the stadium and there was a recorded seismic event during the last quarter when the 12th Man (Seahawks fans) let loose a roar during a touchdown run! Honestly. Really.

    (To those who noticed an anomaly: yes, I know there's no Olive color choice for the Field Journal, but I saw one in the store).
