Lost Crates

A couple months ago I found a company online called Lost Crates.
I don't remember exactly how they came to my notice, but once I found them, I couldn't forget them!

Do you like stationery? Maybe a little too much? Do you lovingly caress notebooks when you go to card stores? Do you like to doodle? Do you have a desk full of note cards and tablets, or wish you did?
Then this is a store for you!

When you first go to Lost Crates, they ask you to take a fun personality quiz. It's set up with pictures and you can re-take it whenever you want:

(Fun fact about me: I did NOT pick the yogurt...)

Once your account is set up and you pay your dues (no, sorry, it's not free) then you have to wait.
And wait.
And wait... Okay, it's not that bad, it just seems like it takes forever!

I got my first Lost Crate last month, and just got my second one today. I have to say I'm rather tickled with them! It was almost like Christmas, getting to open the boxes.

The blue thing is an "eco stapler", meaning it uses no staples. Super cool little gadget! The pens are a lovely quality and I can't wait to have time to actually do some sketching with them. I love the notebooks, too, the big one is especially fabulous! 

Today I got my second crate: 

I used to love fountain pens, and used them all through college. I was happy to see a new one in my crate today!

I guess I'm going to have to get busy and so some real sketching! If only I didn't have to have a grown-up job...  :)
