last week i got the sweetest gift from my mom. we’ve been talking a lot lately about calligraphy and hand lettering, and before i knew i had a pretty little package on my doorstep! a beautiful glass calligraphy pen with writing ink and some pretty pencils from moxie. she knows me so well!
the grooves in the glass pen hold ink effortlessly- all you do is dip the entire point into your favorite writing ink and start scrawling!
the ink goes on nice and smooth and the pen is incredibly comfortable to hold. i was also surprised how long each dip in the ink lasts- i wrote ‘going home to roost’ and still had plenty of ink to spare.
she also sent over some of the prettiest pencils i’ve ever seen. made from 100% recycled paper, they feel soft to the touch and write beautifully! they’re almost too pretty to use. :)
thank you, mom. i love you!
