Certainly one of my favourite letter writing papers is it ultra paper that is thin Life Stationery, the Life Airmail pad.

This paper is merely a delight – air mail paper that is a bit like onion skin paper, lightweight and thin, as originally designed to reduce postage costs while enabling the writer to fit more pages into an envelope. I really like the very thought of stacks of letters, tied along with string, holding the story of months or years apart between a couple. The thin, crinkly texture for this paper is a bit nostalgic, and you realize that’s the way that is secret my heart.

But what makes this paper truly excellent is that along with being very thin, it’s also extremely fountain pen friendly, even with broad and wet nibs. The paper is so thin it’s translucent, and yet i could use almost any nib and ink combination We have, with my letters and lines looking neat and crisp.

Alas, due to the fact paper is so see-through, the backside of this paper just isn’t super for writing on, until you’ve used a supplementary fine nib or maybe not a fountain pen.

This paper is not the same as Tomoe River paper – it’s definitely thinner (and it has more show through), and also has a bit more texture. It’s hard to catch a photograph of it, but it has a texture sort of like cotton paper while I would still describe this paper as generally smooth. It’s also more crinkly than Tomoe River paper, given that it’s so incredibly thin – the full life Airmail paper is similar to true onion skin paper.

The lines are the guidelines included with the pad to place underneath, and on the right is the Airmail paper on the left is the cream Tomoe River Paper.

The paper is B5 sized, that will be a size that is great letters and notebooks, one of my favourite. I use A5 for thank you notes or simply writing to say hello, and A4 when I’ve got a great deal to say, but B5 is a great size that is intermediate.

The best sized envelopes because of this are the #6 air mail envelopes from Life, which will be the best size for B5 envelopes in general (why don’t more companies online homework assignments get this size?). These envelopes in particular are also thin, but are still very strong. This size means you can just fold your letter up into thirds horizontally, without having to fold your letter vertically to fit in.

The biggest drawback for me is the fact that this paper is a bit fragile, therefore if I’m writing a letter in stages, and need certainly to leave the sheets on my desk overnight or even for a couple of days, they have a tendency to get crumpled and show wear more easily. I guess it’s even more reason to set aside a passionate time and energy to start and finish something, however these full days i’m trying to be productive in all the tiny pockets of time i could find. Perhaps really, it is even more reason enough to be a little more organized with all the current junk We have piled up on my desk.

After our hiatus in December, we’re having our letter Club that is writing again night, Thursday, January 11th, from 7-9:00. We’re hoping to see some people there! Now with all the baby that is new things are a bit hairy around bed time again, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed for two soundly sleeping babies so I’m able to participate in the fun.

We’re coming through to InCoWriMo again, this February. It a good go every year, I find myself leaning more and more into longer and more meaningful letters with closer correspondents, compared to brief letters, which doesn’t lend itself to a daily activity while I give. I might, however, make things easy on myself, and possibly compile a summary of visitors to whom I’ll send a postcard or note that is short.

We’re slowly settling into a routine back here, though there are a few big, sweeping changes coming up in front of us, and that knows what our day will look like. Things sometimes seem like they’re beginning to fall under place – dinner plans or stock that is replenishing the holidays – and then sometimes I’m looking for renovation photos, find a folder on my desk top labeled “renovation photos,” and then open it in order to find it empty.

The renovations continue to slog along, with a few road bumps. City zoning and permits and environmental testing and weird by-laws. I really like this populous city, but sometimes the bureaucracy may be a bit much.

We’re getting ready behind the scenes, collecting furniture, repairing treasures from unlikely places, & most exciting of all of the, sourcing a few new brands and lines when it comes to big opening. It’s all basically a jumble back here, trying to organizing shipping and the warehouse filling up with components of furniture taken apart and stacked up. You can also see several of this furniture stacked behind the counters at our shop, similar to this lovely library that is saran-wrapped catalogue regarding the right. It’s actually a classic University of Windsor card catalogue that Jon paid an arm and a leg to get delivered here, and now that arm and a leg are just sitting inside our shop, operating as a tremendously tall side table.
