We love seeing how people use our products and I found it pretty interesting that a dotWebbie was helping to maintain the structure of a new knitting pattern. (With Bleu Pervenche ink?)
Though I’ve always wanted to learn to knit, I’m not the type that can tolerate the discipline needed to follow a pattern. My sweaters would come out with three arms, socks with extra toes… you know where I’m coming from? Until that time, I’m happy to buy pretty knitted hats and scarves from local fiber artists.
Do you knit?

As the Thanksgiving holiday grows closer, an infectious attitude of gratitude seems to be rapidly spreading across the various social media sites I utilize on a regular basis- especially post Hurricane Sandy.
I will admit that while I’ve kept journals and notebooks for all different purposes, I’ve never kept a gratitude journal until now. I started it on 11/01 after our power had come back on because I felt the need to count my blessings after the storm. I am using an orange pocket-sized dotWebbie and have decided to use one page per entry. The book will be housed on my desk and I will add to it as often as I remember.
Do you keep a gratitude journal, or have you ever considered starting one?
It has once again become time for me to move out of one journal and into another. I have been working in a blank Quo Vadis Habana since the beginning of the year and take note- this is highly unusual for me to have spent over 8 months in a single journal. Why so long? It most certainly isn’t for a lack of things to say. In fact, I probably have more stuff that needs to be purged from my brain than ever before. Crazy as it may seem, I think sometimes I become afraid to say what’s on my mind- like I’m playing a game of sorts. If I have a thought and write it down, it makes it more real –> then I have to give my focused attention to it –> which could lead to additional responsibilities OR having to give more attention to the painful bits. Historically, daily writing has proven to be an extremely significant factor (read inexpensive therapy) to my personal growth and overall well being and I would like to make a concentrated effort to write more, and write honestly- painful bits and all.
“A written word is the choicest of relics. It is something at once more intimate with us and more universal than any other work of art. It is the work of art nearest to life itself. It may be translated into every language, and not only be read but actually breathed from all human lips; — not be represented on canvas or in marble only, but be carved out of the breath of life itself.” ― Henry David Thoreau, Walden, or Life in the Woods
Enjoy your weekend everyone, it’s summertime!

What do you think of this pen? Our friend Mike in Chi Town sent us this image of his recent acquisition.
“This is a Visconti Portofino L.E. # 26 of 150 made exclusively by Visconti for the Fountain Pen Hospital c2001.
What is so UNIQUE about this pen is Continue Readering »
Our friend Julie sent us this image to be shared on our “Favorite Pens” photo page and speaking of which, have you sent me a photo of your favorite pen yet?
“Right now my favorite pen is the Pilot B2P (Bottle 2 Pen). I’ve been using it with my journals now for about three months. I came across them by chance one day when buying supplies. They are made from recycled water bottles, and are refillable, so, I feel a little more earth friendly & minimalist when using them. They also write pretty smoothly. The B2P’s don’t have the sleek look of the metal or aluminum, but they have their own unique look. The cool thing is, no one else carries them at my job, so if i misplace my pen, it always finds its way back to me. Same with my notebook, because no one at my job rocks Rhodia Webnotebooks, either!”
We love hearing your feedback as it allows us to tweak our products and expand our offerings to you. It is because of your comments and feedback that we have specifically improved upon the quality and expanded the variety of options on the Webnotebook. Your enthusiasm for our dot grid format has allowed us to offer the dotPad in additional sizes and we’ve even added an additional cover option in Rhodia’s signature orange. Continue Readering »
We’ve got 12 people from all over the US writing, drawing, and creating collages dedicated to their “Favorite Things” in our first ever Rhodia Journal Swap. The dozen members of this project are all working in large Rhodia dotWebbies and are documenting their creations on the group Tumblr blog that we set up for the swappers. Each person is working on several pages in each book before sending it on to the next person. Continue Readering »
One of my favorite non-Rhodia products from Exaclair is the Quo Vadis Habana. They are a slightly different animal than Rhodia’s Webbie. First off, they have stiff, but not hard covers – take note that the cover on the small Habana is stiffer than on the large.
The paper in the Habanas is an 85g off-white versus Continue Readering »
We started with the ruled Webbie, then released the blank version. (My personal favorite.) After the success of the dotPad we were swamped with requests to do a dotWebbie to which we happily responded. As the stapled Rhodia graph pads have always been a very popular product, we are now asking you if you would also want to see a graph version of the Webbie. This would be the gray 5x5mm graph on the 90g off-white paper.
If this version of the Webbbie were available, would you buy it? If so, how would you use it? Would you it for journaling, daily note taking, or for a more specialized purpose? We always appreciate your comments and suggestions for new products and if you are really interested in seeing this product being developed, we want to hear from you!
Since 2005, (whenI started journal writing on a regular basis) I seem to have developed certain rituals surrounding the start of a new book. The first pertains to the selection of the book itself. I always have at least 2 or 3 options on hand so I have to decide… plain paper or lined, white or off white, size of the book, color of the cover, etc. I just went through this- having recently finished a large blank Webbie and contemplated a move into either another one of the same or one of the small Habanas with plain white paper. (no longer available as they now contain off-white paper) I opted for the Habana.
After choosing the book, sometimes I will hold off the actual “start” of the book for a few days if there is a significant date somewhere in the near future- like this past Webbie which I started on the 1st of this year. (Actually, it’s more common that I will pace the ending of the previous book to coincide with the start of the new.) If not, I just dive right in… but not before a bit of customization.

Kate Marshall writes today’s guest post about how she is able to tell all of her multiple Webbies apart:
“At some point, I realized I had multiple Rhodia Webnotebooks around: ruled pages, blank pages, black cover, orange cover, generation 2.0, generation 3.0, etc. My favorite Webnotebook (“Webbie,” as Rhodia Drive has started calling them) are the large, black ones but I needed a quick way to tell one Webbie apart from the other. Labels don’t seem like much fun, especially since I can’t sketch or paint, or even draw competent stick figures. Enter…stickers! My current diary is a large, black Rhodia Webbie with unlined pages but I have similar Webbies scattered around my room, in various states of completion. So the “diary” Webbie has a Tomato Nation sticker on it, while the “school” Webbie sports a cheery “Timmy the Monkey” from Think Geek. I’m sure there’s a Webbie emblazoned with an Ink Drop sticker around here somewhere too.
So what will I do when I get my hands on a Webbie in Rhodia’s new DotGrid pattern? Ooh, stickerbooks!”
If you could have a Rhodia Notebook in any solid color you choose, what would it be? I vote purple! I have mostly used black journals with the occasional red one thrown in, but if I could get my hands on purple Webbies… I might make a permanent switch!
Just got off the phone with Karen – the people’s request for a dotWebbie has been granted! It will contain the same off-white paper and will have pale gray dots. There was originally a discussion of using the white paper with violet dots, but when we asked, our fans responded loud and clear Continue Readering »
