Let us honor the stationery that served us well, and is in a better place than when we had it.
Post what you've used up in this thread as a service to it and to encourage others to use up their supplies on hand. Maybe someone can help you find some more of it, or if you want to recommend it (or not!).
Please try to keep this meaningful by not posting absolutely everything you've used up. Posted items should carry a little significance. For instance, posting that you used a box of 25 "thank you" cards is something we should celebrate here; posting that you used a standalone greeting card isn't.
I'll start: A roll of green washi tape that looked like treetops gave up the ghost while I was decorating an envelope. I would buy that one again if 3M made it and if I didn't buy six other rolls at The Huntington last month.
I have more of the airmail stamps and would buy more if they were available. I had only one sheet of American Gardens and they weren't doing anything for me. The Pilot envelope pen was nice, but extra-fine Sharpies do the same job for cheaper.
I also have one roll of washi tape that will likely bite the dust tomorrow, and a 100-sheet pad of Mead writing tablet will meet its demise shortly thereafter (if not the same time), and my last book of cactus flowers stamps is down to just two stamps. I won't replace the washi tape, but I would replace the cactus flowers stamps if I could, and I have another six pads of Mead writing tablet. A Uniball Signo UM-151 gel pen in lavender-black is also on its last legs, but it is not going down without a fight.
Last Edit: Jul 4, 2022 5:11:51 GMT by allanorn: forgot about the cactus flower stamps!
There have been several new “graves” added to the Stationery Graveyard here the last few days. First up, was a roll of gardening-themed washi tape, then a sheet of Mighty Mississippi stamps, then a sheet of International daisy stamps, and a sheet of Brush Rabbit stamps, too. Lastly, was one of my favorite packs of stationery, which featured envelopes, ink, and dip pen designs on the paper (used the last sheets on a letter to Bob here, no less), I’ll miss that pretty paper.
It’s not that I wrote particularly much the last few days (I barely had time to write at all), but apparently, I was just down to the last bit on all these things.
distractedmom: radellaf, and maybe some different types of paper for testing the inks?

radellaf: I have the 15 inks I've opened so far all ready (with the coffee scented one spilled a bit) but can't figure which freshly-cleaned pen to ink up with one. Or which, at all, to put a glitter/shimmer ink in.

Mia: if worried about the clog, perhaps cheaper pens

radellaf: Oh, yeah, definitely. I have cheap, cheap-ish, and a large selection of various prices but extra easy to clean (feed pulls out easily).

stompie: radellaf Have you tried the Jinhao X159 yet? I got one and it is a great pen at a great price!

radellaf: Pilot 823 size? No, didn't hear about that one. It isn't my _favorite_ style but I'll have to get one anyway.
