Oh how I long for a sturdy wooden work surface. My good friend Mikey D. rents an old house in a very rural area near Harrisonburg, VA. I went to visit him a while back and while I instantly fell in love with the entire house, (which had at one time been a simple one room cabin,) I fell hard for the ancient harvest table in the kitchen.

We know that some of you use our products every day, and we know that some of you reserve our products for special occasions. Obviously, we’d love everyone to be using as much Rhodia as humanly possible so we were wondering if those of you who use our products on a daily basis might lend us a hand. Sometimes all it takes is giving someone permission to make a mess, to make mistakes, and to use our quality paper for the most mundane tasks imaginable. (Grocery lists, pet goat feeding schedules, hubcap bearing replacement appointments and the like.)
Might you share with us, some of the most seemingly uninteresting ways you use our paper as to alleviate the “fancy paper syndrome” that sometimes is associated with a new pad of our glorious paper?
We’d sure appreciate it.
When I first saw these folios in the 2011 Exaclair catalog I thought they were so cool. Knowing that I am typically a mess of small bits of paper & receipts I asked Karen if she might send me a few to test and review. Continue Readering »

Sandra Strait, author of the popular Zentangle inspired blog Life Imitates Doodles recently reviewed our new Rhodia WebPlanner.
(The WebPlanner) “has Rhodia’s signature silky smooth paper, and the overall look aims at elegance rather than flash. You’d think elegance would be difficult when some of the print is orange. However, combined with gray print, it has a surprising sophistication.”
Sandra – we just love your tangle designs in our Rhodia products! Please visit her blog for the full review – maybe even stick around and peruse her amazing tangle designs which are all accompanied with step by step patterns on how to create them.
Howard Parker’s Piel Leather bag is filled with Rhodia- all in current use.
On my desk right now are 4 spiral books, 2 Rhodia, 2 Clairefontaine and also a Quo Vadis Habana. The small Habana is my current journal. A4 Rhodia Meeting Book is for personal projects, A5 Meeting Book is for Rhodia Drive. The Clairefontaine A5 Basics spiral with pockets is for developing material for my mandala workshops., and an A4 Clairefontaine spiral whose cover reads, “Put Pen to Paper, Delay No More” (a gift from Karen) which I’ve used to write my artist bio/statement, workshop descriptions, etc.
What about you? Do you use more than one paper product throughout your day, or is one enough? I can never seem to get enough. Biff loves paper. :o)

“Another use for a Rhodia web notebook: emergency portable postcard desk.” I happened upon this comment by Deidre in my Twitter stream with a link to the above image. Deidre was writing this postcard while standing in line, (a 45-60 min wait) at Risotteria, a gluten-free restaurant in New York City. She was in the city to visit the NYC Pen Show, because like me, Deidre is a fan of wrting with a fountain pen. I wonder what pen & ink combination she was using on the above postcard?
