Notebook Giveaway!!

Notebook Giveaway!!

I just took a very intense, all-day test, and have been the very lucky winner of a few giveaways myself during the past week or so! It's time for me to give back a little! I'm still a student, so it's not extravagant, but if you're a true fellow notebook addict, you won't be able to resist enterin

Improvised Inkwell!

Improvised Inkwell!

I've been getting into dip pens lately, since they're a cheap thrill! ;-) I've been purchasing dip pen nibs anywhere from $0.10 - $2.50 each, and they're a really inexpensive way to try out different styles of nibs. And if you're unsure if you'd like flexible nibs, you can't beat dip pens! They

Shorter, But More Frequent Posts?

Shorter, But More Frequent Posts?

So, I've woefully neglected this blog for a long time! Life and school have been really busy. I was even absent on Twitter for a few months, and didn't have time to read anything there, much less tweet! Recently, I've found a few moments here and there to read and tweet, and I'm hoping to post on

Namiki Falcon Writing Sample!

Namiki Falcon Writing Sample!

I've been really busy lately, and haven't had much time to play with my Grail pen! :-( But a couple of people asked for a writing sample, so it was a good excuse to bring out the Namiki Falcon that I had modified as an extra fine, extra flexible nib by John Mottishaw. The paper is a large Quo Vad

New Pen Goodies and Grail Pen!

New Pen Goodies and Grail Pen!

In an attempt to ease my recent sadness, I went on a bit of a pen splurge and purchased a few things from several pen places. I spent a lot more time adding all kinds of items to my shopping baskets, but then pared down to things I actually wanted, instead of getting everything according to a whim.

Which Ink for a Maiden Voyage?

Which Ink for a Maiden Voyage?

Sadly, my dog passed away last night.  So I'm trying to keep myself distracted with pens and ink, to avoid ruminating! My "grail" pen, a Namiki Falcon that has been modified by John Mottishaw to have an extra fine nib and increased flexibility, was ordered a few weeks ago.  I was recently notif

Which Pens Survived?

Which Pens Survived?

I'm mentally and emotionally girding myself for the next week, which promises to be pretty busy. Then I have a schedule change, which hopefully won't be quite as frenzied! Which fountain pens did I keep inked, after my evening of flushing out pens?  These are the pens that will be my mainstays for

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone!  New beginnings, new endings.   I'm flushing out most (but not all) of my fountain pens, since my schedule will remain hectic for a while.  I miss playing with my fountain pens and ink, but they will have to wait for now.  :-(  I have pens I've never inked yet, but th
