From Friday Afternoon

The river winds and wends alongside the train, leading you toward your destiny. The aroma of rose and sage lifts over apple-sweet water on the back of a serpentine dragon and a tart lemongrass burst of hope tickles the heart in this botanical blend inspired by Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away.

Ingredients: Apple, rose petal, lemongrass, green sage

Next up from the Studio sampler is this Spirited Away-inspired blend.

It’s an herbal tisane, a mix of lemongrass, apple, sage, and rose. The lemongrass is definitely the strongest flavor to my tastebuds, and somehow over it ends up tasting a bit like cucumber. I do taste a touch of sweet-tart apple, and then an undertone of savory sage. The rose comes in in the finish, and fortunately for me it’s quite light and fresh.

It’s nice enough, just not super exciting.

Watching some It Crowd and coloring tonight. Decided to take a little hiatus from instagram and some well liked tea stores. Trying to curb the tea and stationary buying compulsions for awhile and enjoy what I have. Still drinking tea and crafting planner layouts though.

Preparation: Western
Tasting Note: Light soothing herbal. The sage is a nice change from mint. Its very calming without taking over. Lemongrass is refreshing and tangy. Apple is giving a little bit of sweetness. I don’t really taste the rose in this blend bit that is ok with me. I think that this is really refreshing and gives that “Haku/river spirit” vibes.

Flavors: Herbaceous, Lemongrass, Sage, Tangy

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec 3 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

Soooo….not trying to be a bad influence here and do any enabling, but which stationery stores do you like? I could easily have a problem in that direction.

Haha. Instagram is surprisingly dangerous because it is easy to follow so many artists and tea companies are always posting in their stories about their next launch and easily link their store in their bios. That being said to mitigate that (for stationary at least), I am just trying to keep to just the one patreon I support and one sticker subscription service and it has evened things out.

So I think it depends what you want your journal to look like. I typically go the route of stickers and washi tape to decorate my pages but your I have seen a lot of people decorate with pens, pencils, markers, stamps, paper etc (and you get these things at art supply stores, craft stores and even dollar store sometimes). For stickers, I like stickii club (Stickiiclub.com) because they ask different artists to collaborate with them every month and the subscription is relatively cheap ($11/pack/month) or you can choose to buy sticker sheets individually (not the most cost effective method but good if you don’t know if stickers are your thing). Other than that, there is washi station (on instagram) that does some really cute washi tape designs by Canadian artists. Journals you can get anywhere though, from etsy to the dollar store, target or notebooktherapy.com has some cute ones.

Thanks! I have an embarrassingly large paper supply and a bit of washi tape – enough washi tape that I shouldn’t be looking at more washi tape.

I mostly make cards and enjoy sending letters and postcards. It is getting harder and harder to find high quality, pretty writing paper sets, but mostly I decorate my own for letters. And I make all my own envelopes.

I have wax seals and different types of sealing wax, but I don’t use them nearly enough.

Just a couple of years ago I started using washi tape to add bits to my family journal. Mostly I have just written about what is happening/what we did. But I LOVE how creative some people are with their journals, and one of my students made a gorgeous junk journal and has given me her artwork for Christmas the past two years! The newest one will become my gardening journal this spring.

Oo a gardening journal sounds both super functional and pretty. Other than my planner I have an inconsistent memory journal I am making for my baby niece and a family journal. Maybe I should start a tea one too…
