Many thanks to Daycraft and Mr. Foreal Lee for sending me this 2013 Executive Diary to try out. I do like Daycraft products, some of which are very clever, like these Retro Arcade notebooks, and all of which are useful and well-made.

|My favorite--Nutriton & Health, with a cool food pyramid|
The paper is, as I mentioned above, 70gsm and therefore a bit on the thin side. I had some shadowing with a gel ink pen I used, as well as with one of my Pilot fountain pens.

What did surprise me what when I switched to a Noodler's Ahab Flex and used a gentler store with the nib--no shadow at all. So I will have to try not to press so hard and see how that works as I use this more in the new year.
If you're looking for some great stationery products besides a 2013 Diary, take a look at their website. I like these Astrology notebooks with a landscape view, as well as their Signature notebook. You may want to take the plunge and place an order for some really well-made notebooks and journals. And check out their Facebook page, there are some great photos of their products in action.
