Write This Down

By Brittni • Updated on 10/03/2011

Pencils and paper are the new iPad.

Wait, what? Yeah, I said it. Sometimes technology just can’t beat the classics: good old fashion pen (or pencil) and paper.

I was just talking to someone last week about this very topic. And she said the same thing: There is just nothing else that compares to writing things down in a notepad or on a Post-It (that’s what I do), crossing off tasks as you finish them, writing a note to a friend…

If you disagree, you disagree. BUT if you are shaking your head in agreement right now, I highly  recommend you head over to Write with Moxie: a shop dedicated to eco-friendly (and colorful) writing tools. It is the perfect fit for people like us. Lisa Bacon, founder of Write with Moxie, also carries a handful of super cute stamps in the shop and journals will be coming soon as well.

But, clearly, I am partial to the pencils. I mean come on, they are made from 100% recycled paper AND they come in tons of colors. Does it get any better?

*Write with Moxie is also on Etsy if you prefer to check out the collection there.

Curious to know…what color is your favorite?

I am huge fan of Moxie Pear. Love her recycled products – and so fashionable too. I am a sucker for pencils …:)


Yes you are right, nothing can replace paper and pencil. Love the pale green on those pencils!!


I love the light green at the bottom! Beautiful.


Lovin’ the mint color! I’m such a fan of this Etsy shop.

I agree! Nothing can replace paper and pencil! I love carrying around my chunky journal/agenda. And Ã’ve been using the same mechanical pencil for almost 20 years!
Love the weight of it in my hand.
I also prefer books to kindles…I like the feel and smell of them, and they look mch nicer on my bookshelves!

BTW, my favorite color for the pencils (and anything) is yellow!

Ooh, the mint/aqua ones are delicious! I am a pencil and paper girl too. All my blog posts are done on paper first and I have post it notes everywhere!!

Yes! As nice as it is to have all this technology at our fingertips, there’s nothing quite like jotting things down to clear your head.


You are so righ… nothing beats an old moleskine and a pencil or a great pen!! Love the pale green on those pencils!!!

I like the yellow ones…they look like a classic pencil, but with organic look and feel of wrhandmade. BTW, I totally get it… I too like to write things down as opposed to keeping up with fancy, electronic to-do lists.
