Two pens I finished - generic gel pen from Amazon and Pilot G-2 gel pens. Pilot G-2 has been a staple in my pen collection.
ART related items - So many pens this month! I would like to say some pens here I have owned for years, and they happened to be finished this month.
From left, three roller ball pens I used for my journaling - Pentel roller micro fine, Pilot Precise V rollerball, Uniball Vision Elite, all in black. None I typically use for my journaling, but I am trying to use what I have in my stash. I do like Uniball Vision Elite fine (with the black barrel) which has much finer tip than white barrel pictured here, and have several of those. I also like gel pens for my journaling. In the middle, Staedtler Pigment liner 0.5 was used for watercolor because this is waterproof on paper. I don't use this pen on my journal because it bleeds. It lasted me for years, and I enjoyed it - Right now I am using a similar pen I received from Artsnacks subscription box for watercolor, but when that's done, I would repurchase this pen. Very reliable and long lasting. Really liked it.
Next to Staedtler, there is Pilot Frixon with erasable ink- we use this for crosswords. I received 8 color set, and believe I have a few more left. There are ones with retractible ink, which is I like better than the one with the cap because when you are using the pen, the cap would hide the "eraser" with this pen which is kinda annoying. (Yes, I have that set too, so I am set for now. )
The rest is a highlighter, colored gel pen, a glue stick, and a washi tape - used for journaling. Speaking of which, I finished a journal. I am trying out different ones, and usually use one up in anywhere between 6 weeks to 20 weeks. (about 4-5 journals per year). I use it for my training schedule, drawing, sketching, etc. Last few months I used Moleskine datebook 2017 red as my journal - and I really didn't care for the paper (a bit rough, much thinner than artjournal). I will try something else next, won't necessarily seek this product out in future.
The big white tub is J-Lo's bodylab Tastyshake vanilla. It really is tasty. I like it.
