Adorable Rhodia Notebook & Beautiful J. Herbin Ink!

A package came in the mail today from Karen Doherty, VP of Marketing of Exaclair, Inc. I had responded to this post on the Quo Vadis Blog, offering samples of red or blue ink in honor of Bastille Day.

I was expecting a sample of either J. Herbin Bleu Pervenche or Éclat de Saphir fountain pen ink, but I got both! :-D

Sorry for the poor quality pic, but it was taken quickly with my phone. Look for a review of these inks in the future!

Another unexpected surprise was waiting for me in the padded envelope:

As you can see by the quarter next to the notebook, this Rhodia is very small! It's the smallest I've ever seen. This will fit wonderfully in my large pencil case. I'm also having thoughts of Rhodia hacks I can make to affix some sort of elastic/ribbon closure to it.... :-D I'll post a review of what I come up with!

Thanks, Karen, for the fun surprises! :-)

That was a nice surprise! I signed up at the same post too and I've had an email from Karen saying my sample's on the way - can't wait. Maybe we can compare notes?
