I admit it, I’ve got a stationery fetish. I probably like fountain pens, and a nice mechanical pencil more than you do…
Now I’ve gotten that off my chest I’ll get to the point.
For a while now I’ve been admiring the sort of fancy journalling skills folks have on Pinterest. Much like this sort of thing.
Yes, i’ve got a ‘stationery stuff’ Pinterest board 🙂
Anyway, I really like these journals as a bright, appealing and stimulating way of looking at a subject. And, as things develop, a pleasant way to reflect back on the progress and process gone through up to that point. So, rather than just collecting random sheets of paper with inevitable scribble on them which end up allover the place, I’ve decided to keep my ‘useful’ ideas relating to the Hebridean Light Railway all in one place in one of these Journals.
As the book was bought in an awesome shop selling local products in Sri Lanka it seemed fitting to pose my Kelani Valley K class perpetual-work-in-progress on top of it.
Here’s an example of the sort of thing that’s in there, some more sheets like this will appear on the blog from time to time to show my thinking behind things. I’ve a few ideas re baseboards that will appear soon.
