My cousin recently posted a photo of her calendar and collection of colored pens. I thought it was all very cute, so I responded by collecting my own writing materials and taking a photo of that too. To my surprise, I had more than I thought I did – AND I discovered that maybe, just maybe, I might have a little color obsession going on…
Honestly, these are just my essentials that I use everyday!
I’ve been using colored pens since college. They help me organize my thoughts AND they help me recall information that I’ve written in specific colors.
And yes, I do love Post-Its.
And yes, I do love notebooks, too.
Different colors. Different designs. All pretty.
Some people collect shoes and purses. I do notebooks and journals. That’s why it’s hard for me to stay away from the stationary/office/school supplies section at Target. (or any store). I almost always leave with at least one new notebook – and restock on Post-Its, you know, while I was already there anyway.
Oh. Then my girls saw what I was doing (waking a picture of my stuff) and they wanted to do it too.
Here’s a photo of my 6th grader’s prized, writing materials:
And here’s my 1st grader’s invaluable tools:
I think I see a pattern here…
What do you think? Could this color obsession be hereditary?
I actually wouldn’t be surprised if it is.

If you have a color obsession like me, chances are, you like pretty things too! Here’s a few that I bet you’ll love!
