Rhodia Webbie Review and Giveaway

The contest is now closed.  Thank you to all who entered.

When I was contacted by Stephanie – Biffy Beans – about reviewing a webbie and doing a giveaway, I jumped at the chance.  As a lover of notebooks and fountain pens, I have a special fondness for Rhodia products and this one did not disappoint.

First off it has a lovely sturdy cover, elastic closure, ribbon tab, and pocket in the back.

Rhodia Webbie Review

When I opened it I found smooth creamy blank paper.  The journal itself lays flat for easy writing.

Finally I tested it out with a Lamy EF in Poussiere de Lune.  It writes like butter across this paper.  No bleed through, and some pretty shading emerged.

Overall this notebook is a clear winner and my new favorite.

Now if you would like to win one, please leave a comment.  If you would like a second entry, please tweet about the contest or post to your Facebook page and let me know — I’ll put you down for a second entry.  Once we have all the entries I will create a spreadsheet and use a random number generator to pick a winner.

Contest closes on Sunday, August 15, 2010 at 8PM CT.

Also please make sure to check out the Rhodia Facebook page as they are listing out all the places you can win your very own Webbie.

Finally…. you know it’s hot when spiders even look for the shade.

So hot spiders are hiding

  • I’d love to win one of these! My sister has one, and I am supremely jealous.

    Thanks for the review!!

  • Looking to try these guys out. Thanks for the offer! Rhodia does have great paper. Surprising how non-smudgy it is.

    Who are you?
    I like the paper you make
    We were introduced
    By a lover of mine
    And now she’s gone
    But I still have you
    Claire Fontaine

    Claire Fontaine
    You seem to bring
    The best out of me
    And the things that
    I write to sing
    Claire Fontaine

    Claire Fontaine
    Are you a lumberjack or something?
    Does your father own a forest
    Are the nicest trees for choppin’?
    Claire Fontaine
    And Claire Fontaine
    Your sheets are very smooth
    I like to rub my pen across them
    Do you feel the way I do
    Claire Fontaine?

    Claire Fontaine
    You seem to bring
    The best out of me
    In the things that
    I write to sing
    Claire Fontaine

    If newspapers used
    Your paper for the news
    Things would seem less terrifying
    Just because of you
    Claire Fontaine
    And were you in a garden
    When they said the war had started
    Do you think you’d write a letter
    That would start ‘my dear departed…’
    Claire Fontaine

    Claire Fontaine
    You seem to bring
    The best out of me
    And the things that
    I write to sing
    Claire Fontaine

    oooh-oh
    Claire Fontaine
    I’m going home for Christmas
    They may refuse me entry
    ‘Cause you’re native to this country
    Claire Fontaine
    But as a foreigner relinquish
    A pad of paper so distinguished
    I’d say ‘never, never, never
    I’ll take this pad of mine to heaven’
    Claire Fontaine

    Where maybe I would choose
    To write a fan letter or two
    I might write one to Andy Warhol
    And the other one for you
    And you could rest assured in knowing
    They’d be on your paper too
    Claire Fontaine,
    Who are you?

    The best out of me
    And the thing that

  • I would love the oppurtunity to win a webbie. Thank you and thanks to Stephanie for making this possible.

    That is a wonderful spider picture and I enjoyed your comment about the heat & shade.

  • Nothing makes me happier than a bright, shiny, new, full of potential notebook. Love the look, love the layout, will be checking this one out soon.

    Wendy

  • Well, I see you knit and spin Madame Purl! How wonderful! I would love to have two or more chances for a wonderful Rhodia book.
    I am tweeting and putting on facebook.

  • Hi, I’d love to win one, and I’ve posted about it on my FB (which is friends locked) and my dw/lj (which is not friends locked).

  • A Webbie in a tree I’d like to win for me … for doodling and oogling too of course. Thanks for review and giveaway. I love the tree fungus umbrella. I’ll have to go look who’s hiding under mine.

  • I’ve yet to try out a Rhodia journal and greatly appreciate the opportunity of doing so.

    Thank you kind.
